Controversy leading up to announcement

In March 2012, Knoxville discussed the possibility of a fourth movie, saying "we’re keeping our mind open" and "I’ve got 50-60 ideas on top of all the stuff we didn’t get to shoot.[2] This was supported when Paramount supposedly purchased the URLs “” and “”.[3]


First poster

More support for the film came during Margera's September 18, 2012 interview on The Howard Stern Show. About Jackass he said: "There's going to be a whole movie about the [Knoxville's grandpa character].

Despite this in June 2012 Johnny Knoxville denied that there is any truth in it. He spoke to a reporter saying that "There is no 'Jackass 4' in the works. That, I promise,". Knoxville was adament that the sequel was not happening saying "One hundred percent no."[4]

In an video interview for MovieWeb, Steve-O said that he didn't know for sure what was happening but that it was possible. He said "It's a distinct possibility".[5]

Steve-O also stated in his Rolling Stone interview that there is no Jackass 4 in the making and that if there will be a movie about Knoxville's Bad Grandpa character, he is not involved. [6]

On July 17th 2013 the film was confirmed by Johnny Knoxville on the Dickhouse website.[1]

Now here is the Trailer of the movie.

Along the way Irving will introduce the young and impressionable Billy to people, places and situations that give new meaning to the term childrearing. The duo will encounter male strippers, disgruntled child beauty pageant contestants (and their equally disgruntled mothers), funeral home mourners,biker bar patrons and a whole lot of unsuspecting citizens. Real people in unreal

situations, making for one really messed up is the website
