New York - Johnny Knoxville's crew is again following a box-office release with a digital addendum called Jackass 3.5.
Producers Paramount Pictures and MTV Films announced on Tuesday that Jackass 3.5 will be released in weekly online instalments, with a subsequent feature-length film released digitally in March. Exactly where Jackass 3.5 will be available wasn't announced.
The footage will feature surplus stunts from Jackass 3D, which has earned more than $116m at the box office since its October release.
In 2007, Jackass 2.5 similarly followed Jackass Number Two. It claimed to be the first broadband movie distributed by a major studio. Jackass 2.5 was streamed for a week for free by Blockbuster Inc, then made available for download and on DVD.
A representative for the film says Jackass 3.5 and Jackass 3D are different projects.
