Johnny Knoxville will reprise his role as Irving Zisman in Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, which will hit theaters this fall. This is according to The Hollywood Reporter.
For those who don’t recall the character and his NSFW antics, here’s a taste.
What’s interesting is that Paramount plans to premiere Bad Grandpa on October 25, which means Paranormal Activity 5 will open in theaters on January 3rd. It’s an unusual move, but not unexpected. PA4 had a somewhat disappointing take at the box office this past fall, and audiences might need a break from the annual routine. And January is bereft of new releases aside from the usual Oscar bait. Putting a well-established horror franchise there could reap rewards.
No word if Bad Grandpa will be a series of hidden camera skits or have an actual plot. All we know, as THR notes, is that shooting has been completed.
