(NEW YORK) -- The surprising success of Jackass 3D could lead to the release of a sequel in the near future. Paramount Pictures, the studio behind Jackass 3D, will decide within the next few days whether it will develop a follow-up consisting of footage that was left out of the current film, reports the Los Angeles Times. A sequel could hit theaters in a matter of months.
There's no shortage of footage to work with, according to Jackass star Johnny Knoxville, who says, "We have so many bits that we never even turned in to Paramount because we were so swamped with ideas -- funny stuff."
The Los Angeles Times reports Paramount's original plan was to release the bonus scenes as an online feature, not unlike what it did with Jackass Number Two and its companion film, Jackass 2.5. Paramount is now rethinking its options, given that Jackass 3D earned $50 million during its opening weekend.
