'Jackass' Stars To Reassemble for 'Mustache Riders' & More

March 4th, 2011 10:19am EST
People can't make sense of it, but America loves those "Jackass" guys.

With "Jackass 3-D" grossing around $117 million (and produced for only $20 mil), it's a no-brainer that Paramount, the studio behind the film, would go to great lengths to ensure that the boys come back for more.

According to Deadline, the studio is moving forward with two scripted projects that would keep some of the guys in house and give them a little time to beg Johnny Knoxville and the gang back for another round of comedic self-inflicted pain.
