While we reported in the past that the second Zombieland and the third Jackass movie would both be in 3D, Variety now confirms those reports. The trade also provides new details on both films. First, they confirm that Zombieland director Rueben Fleischer will definitely return for the sequel and Sony is already talking to Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg to reprise their roles. Screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are back as well and currently writing the sequel.
But 3D is not just for horror; it’s also for watching people abuse the shit out of themselves and others for your entertainment. We’re going to get a 3rd round of Jackass with filming set to begin on January 25, 2010 with the film to be released later that year. While Paramount confirmed that Jackass 3 will be 3D, they didn’t mention how it would be employed. My guess: being able to see a dude destroy his scrotum like you’ve never seen before.
