Few people in Hollywood put themselves in harm's way in such a prominent way like Johnny Knoxville, the man behind "Jackass" and "Bad Grandpa," among other ridiculously dangerous (and ridiculously ridiculous) movies.
But for his next act, Knoxville plans on heightening his dangerous methods in an all-new way. Speaking with MTV News at the Sundance Film Festival, where he was promoting his new documentary "Being Evel" about legendary cyclist Evel Knievel, Knoxville revealed that he has plans for a new movie that combines the high-risk stunt stylings of "Jackass" with a narrative structure along the lines of "Bad Grandpa."
"'Bad Grandpa' was a narrative with stunts, and this is more of a narrative with pranks," he said. "It's probably going to hurt."
Story details about the movie are unknown, but don't expect to see Knoxville in any "Bad Grandpa" inspired hair-and-makeup.
"It would be me, acting and doing the stunts," he said. "It's going to add up. I might have to shoot that baby in sequence."
Knoxville added that plans for the movie are "a little bit preliminary" for now, so stay tuned as more details spring to life, like a man shot out of a cannon.
