“Jackass” is coming back for more insanity and mayhem as Paramount has given a date for a fourth movie in the stunt-prank series. “Jackass 4” will make its way to theaters on Mar. 5, 2021, according to a report from Deadline.

Johnny Knoxville, Jeff Tremaine, and Spike Jonze created the “Jackass” series for MTV back in 2000. The show aired for three seasons, ending in February 2002 before making a jump to the big screen with its first film in October later that year. The series featured Knoxville and his castmates pulling stunts and pranks to each other or the public. The cast included Steve-O, Bam Margera, Dave England, Brandon DiCamillo, Ryan Dunn, Chris Pontius, Preston Lacy, Jason “Wee Man” Acuna, and Ehren McGrehey. For its reckless behavior and offensiveness, the show received some controversy since it started airing.

The show’s cancellation led to four feature films, all released by Paramount. The films were directed by Tremaine, with the latest movie “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa” released in 2013. It’ll be over a decade since a main “Jackass” movie has been out in theaters after “Jackass 3D” was released in 2010.

A fourth film has been discussed among the cast over the years, however, Steve-O revealed that it was unlikely a few years ago. At the time, he suggested that production would take place as soon as Margera was sober, who was seeking treatment for alcoholism.

After the main show’s cancellation, Knoxville and the cast found work in films and television. Knoxville has done work in film as an actor, appearing in films like “Walking Tall,” “The Dukes of Hazzard,” “The Ringer,” “The Last Stand,” and “Action Point.” His upcoming films include “We Summon the Darkness” and “Mainstream.”

Meanwhile, Margera developed his own series “Viva La Bam” while Dunn had his own show “Homewrecker.” Steve-O and Pontius were also given the show “Wildboyz,” featuring special appearances from some of the “Jackass” members.

Production on the new film has not yet begun, but it would be the first without Dunn, who was killed in a car crash in 2011.
