Netflix has announced your favourite thrill-seeking pranksters will be hitting the small screen next month, with Jackass 4.5 set to be released in May.
Despite Jackass Forever premiering two months ago, the movie’s star, Johnny Knoxville revealed Jackass 4.5 is riddled with unseen footage and even more death-defying stunts.
He told Screenrant: “Oh it's stacked! It is great. There's so many great bits that did not make this film. So it's stacked. You're going to like it.”
Say stacked once more!
The newest addition to the Jackass teamm, Rachel Wolfson, also told Uproxx that the fans would love the latest film, teasing there’s so much we didn’t see in the fourth instalment.
She said: “There’s a lot of stuff that you guys didn’t get to see that will be in 4.5 and I’m very excited for that to come out as well.”
She added: “But they got so much good content for this movie, that 4.5 will be such a great movie as well.”
In the same interview, Wolfson also spoke about being the crew’s first stunt woman and that Knoxville discovered her via Instagram shortly before sliding into her DMS.
She said: “I got a direct message from Johnny Knoxville, which when I first got it, I couldn’t believe it. I thought I was being pranked.
“So I got on the phone with him and he said that they were doing some kind of anniversary special. So at first, I didn’t even know it was a movie. And he asked if I would be interested, and I was like, yes. Whatever Johnny Knoxville asked of me, I was like, ‘I am interested.’”
Jackass was perhaps looking for a new cast member following Bam Margera’s firing, who, according to the Inquirer, broke a ‘Wellness Agreement’ while on the road to recovery from drug and alcohol abuse back in 2019.
As a result of his termination, the former pro-skater fired a lawsuit against Knoxville, MTV and Paramount while claiming he faced ‘inhumane, abusive and discriminatory treatment’ during production.
TMZ reports that Margera had to undergo frequent drug and alcohol tests and was prescribed medication that left him ‘depressed and drained’.
However, last week, Margera asked to dismiss the lawsuit with the terms of the settlement remaining private, according to court reports obtained by TMZ.
Jackass 4.5 will be released on Netflix on May 20.
