Whether you think 'Jackass 3D' is funny or not, there's no denying that the sight of Johnny Knoxville and his crew enduring extreme physical distress makes a helluva lot of money. What's more, they have a lot of fun doing it -- so much so that there's enough footage to make a sequel, er, now.
Knoxville told the Los Angeles Times, "We shot two movies' worth of footage... We have so many bits that we never even turned in to Paramount because we were so swamped with ideas - funny stuff. The bits were just coming out of us left and right." (He said bits.) Steve-O, whose real name is Stephen Glover, added, "How are you going to leave out the scene where a guy farts darts into another guy's face?... You know you're working with some high-quality material if you're leaving something like that out." Too true, too true.
In an interview with CraveOnline, director Jeff Tremaine has even more to say about 'Jackass 3D' and its future. "This movie was the hardest one so far to make the final cut. We've kicked so many really good things out of the movie. A lot of times it's just because it's too similar to something that's just a little bit better or there's too much vomiting, too much of this thing or that thing. 3.5 is going to be great and I hope we can show it in 3D because it's mostly in 3D as well."
