If you’re a fan of Jackass, April 1st is Christmas Day. That’s because while Jackass 3.5 could have been released in theaters, it’s going to be showing for free on Joost.com! According to director Jeff Tremaine, every Tuesday and Friday, between one to three segments from Jackass 3.5 will be showing on Joost, and it’ll continue until it’s done. Down the road, you can expect it to be released on DVD/Blu-ray. I caught a screening of the entire film a few days ago and it’s extremely funny and it’s got a few amazing stunts. I’m actually surprised they didn’t release it in theaters.
Anyway, a few days ago I sat down with Tremaine to talk about all things Jackass. We discussed why didn’t Jackass 3.5 hit theaters first, the future of Jackass, how much deleted footage is still in the vaults, did they ever stop a stunt due to being too dangerous, his upcoming scripted-feature directorial debut, Revenge of the Jocks, and a lot more. I’ve listed the highlights of the interview as bullet points and I’ve also time indexed the entire interview so you can watch the parts that interest you. Hit the jump to watch:
