Paramount Planning JACKASS 4: BAD GRANDPA?

     June 7, 2012


It appears that another Jackass film is on the way, but with a possible twist.  Per Paramount has been registering domain names for titles like “”, “”, and “”, suggesting that a fourth entry in the Jackass franchise is in the works.  Those wondering what the “Bad Grandpa” subtitle means probably haven’t seen the first three movies, as a prominent sketch features Johnny Knoxville and Spike Jonze hitting the streets in high quality old people make-up and participating in various shenanigans.  Hit the jump for more, including a clip of the sketch.

Though the Bad Grandpa sketch is really funny, I’m not sure it could sustain a feature length film.  I’m hoping this fourth entry in the franchise will still include crazy antics and stunts from other castmemebers, as well as the hilarious and increasingly dickish pranks they pull on each other.  Though no Jackass 4 has been officially confirmed, the domain registration that Fusible stumbled upon (via /Film) is a good indicator that an announcement is imminent.  There are some great gags and stunts in all three Jackass films so far, but it’ll be interesting to see how the dynamic of the group has shifted (if at all) since Ryan Dunn’s passing.  Watch a Bad Grandpa clip below.
