Jackass 4 Release Date Pushed Back To July 2021

Paramount Pictures has announced that the next film in the Jackass franchise has been pushed back as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The fourth film in the series, which was originally due to be released in March 2021, has now been given a later release date of July 2 2021.

This latest Jackass flick was announced in December and will be the first since 2010's Jackass 3D, as well as the first time that the gang have filmed together since the tragic death of their friend and fellow cast member Ryan Dunn.

So far, Paramount has yet to confirmed which of the original gang will be returning to take part in the next instalment. There's as yet no inkling whether Johnny Knoxville, the face of the franchise, or director Jeff Tremaine will be on board.

Jackass was created back in 2000 by Johnny Knoxville, Jeff Tremaine, and Spike Jonze. After the series - which saw the various cast members performing silly stunts, pranking one another, and generally acting the goat - was a huge success, three films were made.

Those films, released in 2003, 2006, and 2010, were all box office hits. At a budget of less than $20m for each film, they collectively brought in $335m at the box office around the globe.

Not a bad return, really.

This year represents the 20th anniversary of the series' premiere on MTV, and although it'll now be next year before anyone sees the new film, there is still an appetite amongst the stars of the show to mark that occasion.

However, Steve Glover - better known as Steve-O - said that ultimately it will come down to whether Knoxville, Tremaine, and Jonze remain keen to push on with the franchise, and whether everyone in the case is healthy enough to play their part in the film.

He added: "We're approaching the 20th anniversary of when 'Jackass' first appeared on MTV, and I do know that there's an urge, an idea to commemorate that anniversary in some way,"

As for whether he'll appear, Steve-O recently said: "It has been greenlit by Paramount Pictures, yeah. They say March of 2021 [now July 2021, obviously] but they haven't given me an offer that I can really take seriously yet

"Not to be rude or anything, but... I don't have a contract yet. So we'll see.

"I'm rooting for all the bros. It's just a weird situation. But I love all my Jackass buddies, and I just gotta do it differently this time. They gotta fix it."
