Paramount Pictures is receiving real shocked reactions to the messed up antics of Johnny Knoxville with the release of the official poster from its upcoming comedy, ‘Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.’ Infamous ‘Jackass’ star Knoxville is once again eliciting surprise from audiences with the new poster from the film, which features him roughly holding his young co-star, Jackson Nicoll.
Paramount Pictures has released the following official synopsis for ‘Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa’:
86 year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companion, his 8 year-old Grandson Billy in ‘Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.’ This October, the signature Jackass character Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) and Billy (Jackson Nicoll) will take movie audiences along for the most insane hidden camera road trip ever captured on camera.
Along the way Irving will introduce the young and impressionable Billy to people, places and situations that give new meaning to the term childrearing. The duo will encounter male strippers, disgruntled child beauty pageant contestants (and their equally disgruntled mothers), funeral home mourners, biker bar patrons and a whole lot of unsuspecting citizens.
Real people in unreal situations, making for one really messed up comedy.
‘Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa,’ which is set to be released in theaters on October 25, was directed by ‘Jackass’ helmer Jeff Tremaine. It was co-written by Knoxville and Spike Jonze, and stars Knoxville, Nicoll, Georgina Cates and Blythe Barrington-Hughes.
