Assuming you weren’t bludgeoned into blubbery, vomit-strewn submission by Jackass 3D and are hungry for more, the team behind the stunts has an entirely expected special surprise for you – they’re following in the tradition of Jackass 2.5 with another digital release, Jackass 3.5
Yes, the team has been threatening ever since the film arrived cinemas that they had more footage up their poo-coated sleeves, and now they have plans to show it to us all. Launching in March (in the States at least – we’ll have to wait and see if it goes day-and-date over here), the new footage will feature… well, you can probably guess. But here’s what the press release, picked up by MTV, announces anyway. "Made specifically for release in digital media, Jackass 3.5 will feature all-new content, including never-before-seen stunts and pranks to rival Jackass 3D’s beehive tetherball and projectile Port-o-Potties. Each week, new stunts and footage will be released online, and will ultimately be packaged together for a full-length film to be distributed digitally before it's released on other platforms (including Blu-ray and DVD)".
"When the guys went to make Jackass 3D, we proposed that we shoot a follow up to the successful Jackass 2.5 digital feature alongside it, and everyone was up for it," Thomas Lesinski, president of Paramount Digital Entertainment gushes. "In Jackass 3.5, you are going to see an entire movie's worth of new stunts, new pranks and new gags, on whatever screen you choose."
"For Jackass 3D we shot enough footage for two movies, so a lot of great stuff didn't make it in the film," adds chief prankster Johnny Knoxville. "Luckily you will get to see those bits in 3.5. We also shot some additional footage in Europe specifically for it. I have staples in my head right now to prove it. Woo hoo." Yes, he’s proud, folks.
