Trailer: ‘Jackass Presents Bad Grandpa’ Is a Narrative Movie with Pranks Like ‘Borat’


The Jackass guys are going in a different direction with their new movie. Called Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, it comes out October 25th and it’s a narrative film built around Johnny Knoxville’s old man character, Irving Zisman, from the Jackass series with pranks mixed in with the story a la Borat or Brüno. Knoxville and director Jeff Tremaine tell USA Today that they’ve been approached about making an Irving Zisman movie for years but only recently had a way of doing it that they liked.
