Jackass

Even thought the Hollywood tradepapers confirmed rumors earlier this month that Jackass 3D would begin filming on January 25th 2010, Paramount andMTV Films have apparently sent out a press release officially announcing the project.  The funniest part is a quote from Jackass star Johnny Knoxville, who claims that with Jackass 3D, “We’re going to take the same 3D technology James Cameron used in AVATAR and stick it up Steve O’s butt.
