Recently, the release date for the fourth film in the Jackass franchise – Jackass Forever – received another delay and this its been pushed from October 22 to February 4, 2022. The Production of the film was previously delayed not only by the pandemic last year but also by several injuries on set. And according to reports, the Jackass cast have endured a long list of injuries over the course of their careers, with the estimated total cost of $24 million.
As per a new study commissioned by Nova Legal Funding (via IGN), the estimated total cost of the injuries sustained by the Jackass cast over the years stands at a staggering $24,263,000 with Knoxville having the highest tab at an estimated $8.66 million followed by Ehren McGhehey at $7.38 million and Steve-O at $5.82 million.
Subsequently, Dave England comes in with $1.65 million, Jason “Wee Man” Acuña with $675 thousand to fill out the top five. The list did not include Bam Margera due to various factors, including his exclusion from Jackass Forever and “ongoing reports” regarding his mental health as well.
The report also looked at injuries sustained before, during, and in-between filming of ‘Jackass’ movies and series and then used “internal expertise and data” to come up with a total cost per injury. This also let the report break down the most expensive injuries overall with the brain hemorrhage Knoxville suffered in 2020 while filming Jackass Forever has an estimated cost of around $2.5 million.
It’s quite a high-cost list for some intense injuries, but even just looking at the trailer for Jackass Forever, that’s not a surprise. In July, the film’s first trailer arrived full of dangerous stunts.
The star cast of the fourth film in the Jackass franchise includes Johnny Knoxville along with Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Dave England, Wee Man, Danger Ehren, and Preston Lacy. Newcomers are Jasper, Rachel Wolfson, Sean “Poopies” McInerney, Zach Holmes, and Eric Manaka.
Jackass Forever is directed by Jeff Tremaine, who produced alongside Knoxville and Spike Jonze, and will come into theaters on February 4, 2022. Shanna Newton and Greg Iguchi serve as executive producers.
