In truth the Jackass crew could never really replicate their early success, but that didn’t stop them putting out a trilogy of films.
And now a fourth could be on the way as Chris Raab – aka Raab Himself to Jackass fans – has said everyone from the cast is down for it.
Speaking to Loudwire, Raab said: “I get the feeling that everyone’s pretty interested in it. I’m not sure that it would ever happen. Ryan [Dunn, who tragically died in 2011] was a huge part of that, so it’s sort of weird without him.
“We’ve got that question about the CKY thing [the video series that evolved into Jackass]. ‘Is there going to be a CKY 5?’ Nah, that’ll never happen. As far as Jackass, I would think maybe it would happen, but I don’t know because I’m not in that world enough to know.
“I probably would be, if asked… I feel like if [Jeff] Tremaine and Spike [Jonze] and [Johnny] Knoxville said, ‘Hey, let’s do it,’ then I imagine it would go forward. If they were to say it, I don’t think there would be push-back from others.”
Rumours have been circulating that a fourth film could be on the cards after the whole crew were spotted hanging out together in an Instagram post with Jackass co-creator and director, Jeff Tremaine.
However, Steve-O shot cooled the idea of a new film just a few months ago.
Speaking on In Depth with Graham Bensinger, he said the fourth movie wasn’t going to happen because Knoxville wasn’t interested as it could tarnish their legacy.
“The short answer is that Knoxville is not interested in doing that,” he said. “There’s been emails from some of the other guys, particularly one guy, who periodically has sent group emails. ‘Come on guys, let’s make another movie. Everybody wants it, I get asked everyday if we’re going to make another movie’.
“Knoxville responded to the last one with, ‘I get asked every day if we’re going to make another movie as well, but I would rather people ask for another movie than, ‘Why did you make that last movie?” He wanted to sort of keep the legacy intact, and I can’t really argue with it.”
I mean, I’m down for it.
Make it happen.
