In October this year audiences will get to watch a group of quadragenarians knock themselves unconscious, fire themselves out of cannons and lose their teeth as the Jackass crew re-assemble one last time for Jackass Forever.
As demonstrated in the trailer below it looks like more of the same from the original Knoxville gang with the exception of Ryan Dunn who was tragically killed in 2011, Bam Margera who was fired from the production earlier this year and comedian Rip Taylor who died in 2019.
The biggest question on everyone’s lips right now is what exactly is Johnny Knoxville made of. Kevlar?
Last year Johnny Knoxville, (he of Jackass fame), produced and starred in a movie called Action Point, a film based on a true story involving the establishment of one of the single most insane and dangerous amusement parks in American History.
Apparently after watching a 2013 documentary about Action Park, based in New Jersey, Knoxville was so inspired by the story that he felt compelled to make a comedy about it. Putting the laughs to one side it now appears that the entire story of Action Park was far more serious as the new documentary Class Action Park: The World’s Most Dangerous Amusement Park details.
The documentary synopsis states:
During its 1980s heyday, New Jersey’s Action Park was known as the world’s most dangerous amusement park. It was as a lawless land, ruled by drunk teenage employees and frequented by drunker teenage guests. The rides ignored basic notions of physics, common sense, and safety. The end result lay somewhere between Lord of the Flies and a Saw movie. But despite countless injuries and deaths, Action Park is looked back at fondly as an insane—but insanely fun—rite of passage. The scars it left? Badges of honor. Class Action Park is the first-ever feature documentary to explore a place that has long since entered the realm of myth. The film peels away the trappings of nostalgia to reveal the shocking truth behind the park and its genius madman founder.
The documentary has yet to confirm a release date but you can keep up-to-date with the production by visiting it’s main website HERE
He was 34 years old, he was famous for inserting a toy car up his anus and he was killed yesterday when his Porsche left the road in Pennsylvania, hit a tree and burst into a ball of flames.
So severe was the accident that Dunn was only identified by his hair and tattoos, a passenger travelling with him was also killed but authorities so far have been unable to identify the body.
The Internet has been rife with speculation over Dunn’s death and celebrity website TMZ are reporting that the Jackass star had at least six drinks before getting behind the wheel of his Porsche, following a picture Dunn himself posted up on Twitter posing with a can of beer only hours before the crash A toxicology test is to be carried out with results released later.
In the meantime a handful of celebrities have been pretty vocal about the fact Dunn may have been drunk and after American movie critic Roger Ebert tweeted: “Friends don’t let jackasses drink and drive,” fellow Jackass star and long time friend Bam Margera responded with the following:
About as subtle as a toy car being inserted into one’s anus.
