Earlier this week, Paramount became the latest studio to release a slew of its high-profile films from this year to 2022, in yet another release date. Tom Cruise had both Top Gun: Maverick and Mission Impossible 7 given a hefty delay, while the alleged last Jackass movie Jackass Forever was also postponed until the end of the winter season. However, as you would expect,Jackass Star Johnny Knoxville not only wanted Paramount to release the news as a press release, but did so as well. Instead, he went out and found himself a Jackass billboard so he can change the release date himself with a can of spray paint.
As is customary in these situations, Johnny Knoxville had Jackass producer Dimitry Elyashkevich on hand with a camera to film the entire stunt. In the video posted on Knoxville’s Instagram account, he is seen on one of the billboards indicating the movie with a black spray paint. He sprays the new release date of February 4, 2022 on the board and deletes the word ‘soon’ from the poster’s statement ‘soon known’.
In the post, Knoxville wrote: “Due to covid, we’re pushing the release date of #JackassForever to February 4, 2022. See you there. PS Yeah, I’m a brunette by @meechface again.”
Knoxville, now 50, said in a recent GQ interview Jackass Forever This will be the last film they do, mainly because he seems to realize that no one can do the crazy things he can cope with in these films at his age, without something happening that takes everything too far. “You can only take so many chances before something irreversible happens,” Knoxville said. “I feel like I was very lucky to take the chances and still walk around.”
Jackass Forever brings back Knoxville and a bunch of ordinary guys like Steve-O, Wee Man, Dave England, Chris Pontius, Ehren McGhehey and Preston Lacy. This time some new additions will be added, Jackass Shark Week special stars Sean “Poopies” McInerney and Jasper Dolphin, and Zach Holmes of Too stupid to die.
The first trailer for the film was released in July when the move was expected to hit theaters on October 22, and the recordings were the first time the Jackass gang had been together since Ryan Dunn’s death a decade ago. Around the same time, a series of photos were also released from the movie, which included role players shooting faces at snakes, being shot from cannons, being bullied by bulls and all sorts of common misdeeds that would get fewer men and women seriously injured.
The official summary, if you need it, reads: “In celebration of the joy of being back with your best friends and a perfectly executed shot to the dingdong, the original jackass crew returns for another round of hilarious , wildly absurd and often dangerous performance comedy with a little help from some exciting new cast.Joney and the team push the envelope even further. Jackass Forever now coming to the theaters on February 4, 2022.
