As far back as 2019, Paramount announced that 'Jackass 4' was officially on its way. But that does not always mean that we get the final product.
But, if you miss more heartbreaking stunts and crazy scenes from the Jackass roots, then we can rejoice that the recordings for 'Jackass 4' are now in full swing. The film is set to be released this year - a full 10 years after Jackass 3.

The first recordings started before the pandemic broke out. Production resumed in December, and two days later Johnny Knoxville and Steve-O were hospitalized after a treadmill stunt.
Although several of the members are in their 40s and Knoxville even hits the age of 50 by March, it does not sound like they have gotten much older in their heads - and the fantasy of the deadly scenes has not disappeared either.
'Jackass 4' can, however, end up without a central member. Skater Bam Margera, who later got his own MTV spin-off with the series 'Viva La Bam', has been thrown out of the film.
At least that's what the 41-year-old actor says in a series of private videos on Instagram, which have since been deleted.
This is partly due to Bam Margera's years of public struggle with alcohol and drugs and a number of demands that Paramount should have made on the Jackass member in order for him to participate.
Margera says that he has helped write material for the new film, but he probably ends up not participating in the final product himself.
The CKY star has been a part of Jackass since the start of the series and has appeared in all three feature films.
All the original members would otherwise be back in 'Jackass 4', with the exception of Ryan Dunn, who in 2011 died in a tragic car accident. The film is directed by Jeff Tremaine, who was also behind the previous films.
Jackass 4 is expected to premiere on September 2, 2021.
