Forget JACKASS IV!! Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera and Ryan Dunn To Star With Willie In Scripted Action Comedy MUSTACHE RIDERS!!

I am Hercules!!

Can Bam Margera act?

We may learn soon. Deadline says Paramount is developing a scripted feature titled “Mustache Riders,” about a trio of ne’er-do-wells who team with a grizzled outlaw to locate Curly’s gol … er, some hidden loot. It’s to star Margera and two of his fellow “Jackass” performers, Johnny Knoxville and Ryan Dunn.

The idea is the three aging shopping-cart riders (Knoxville turns 40 next week) will do their own stunts.

Hopefully they'll find roles for Wee Man, Steve-O and the rest of the crew.

Broken Lizard, which was behind Knoxville’s starring turn in “The Dukes of Hazzard,” is somehow involved as well.

Separately, Knoxville is attached to star in the same studio’s “First Man,” about a hellraiser whose wife is unexpectedly elected president of the United States.

    Maybe I'm imagining things

    by Jet Jaguar

    But I remember first hearing about "First Man" a few years ago, and I think it was originally set to star Robert De Niro in the lead role.

    oh. joy.

    by spidercoz

    Bam Margera, I hate you so fucking much you fucking cock sneeze piece of shit, fucking immolate yourself

  • March 3, 2011, 6:56 p.m. CST

    Waitin for the trailer on this one...

    by josh

    It might be really bad...but I mean having said that, you can't really say the Jackass movies are cinematic masterpieces...so i'll probably enjoy it regardless, haha.

  • March 3, 2011, 6:56 p.m. CST

    Bless em' ...

    by GINGE_MUPPET

    Jackass is so tame and cuddly when you look back on it now ... about as cutting edge as a Care Bear. Get the Dirty Sanchez boys in and I'll be interested .... who the fuck would pay to watch Margera anyway?

    Bam is the only skateboarder of the 3

    by Yeah I Wrote That

    is the best thing Knoxville has been involved with. How has that not gotten more attention? It's amazing.

  • March 3, 2011, 7:12 p.m. CST

    Johnny is no skater

    Watch Haggard...

    by Wil

    ...if you need to find out if Bam can act. The answer? Kinda...

    who would pay? Im assuming you, when you saw any of the jackass movies

  • March 3, 2011, 7:30 p.m. CST

    Tremaine directing?

    by Yelsaeb

    Bam "acted" in his own Haggard

    by beastie

    It was awful and so was everyone in it. That's not to say that he couldn't be convincing with a professional director.</P><p>So wierd. AICN just let me update my profile. It had my email address from 13 years ago. Is this new or just something I've been overlooking for years.

    I'm with you, spidercoz

    by Manatee

    I freakin' hate that punk Bam Margera. The other guys seem harmless enough, even sweet (in a mildly retarded way), but Bam just strikes me as being a giant douchebag. I've seen nothing to contradict this evaluation. Why not let Pontius be in a movie with Knoxville. I'll bet Pontius could turn into a decent actor if given the chance.

    You know, I'm all for intelligent comedy

    by BlaGyver

    But there's something to be said for a dude getting kicked in the nuts. God bless these guys.

  • March 4, 2011, 12:27 a.m. CST

    Well, I'd rather see these guys star in comedies than Dane Cook

    The Broken Lizard crew is ok by me.

    Broken Lizard can be hit or miss

    by DirkD13"

    But when they hit, (Super Troopers, Club Dread), they really hit. Their stand-up show was beyond awful, shame as I really like them. And for all you Club Dread haters, I shall defend that movie until my dying day! One of the best horror comedies ever made imho. And I agree that Margera seems like a total prick, whereas all the others just, don't.

  • March 4, 2011, 4:32 a.m. CST

    Margera and Dunn in Haggard were pretty good

    by Lone Fox

    Possibly my favourite stupidest film of all time.

  • March 4, 2011, 9:02 a.m. CST

    I was gonna say that Broken Lizard is hit or miss

    by rev_skarekroe

    But I was beaten to it. Damn you, dirkd13"!!!

  • March 4, 2011, 9:34 a.m. CST

    Wait...Broken Lizard made "Dukes Of Hazard"?

    by Elgyn6655321

    Didn't know that. Huh. And yeah, "Club Dread" was a great slasher spoof! Really, I loved it. I little too long maybe. When the killer reveals his "motivation" it was so insanely stupid it's hilarious.

  • March 4, 2011, 9:45 a.m. CST

    First Man...

    by The Dread Pirate Roberts

    ... sounds awful. But mustache riders sounds hilarious!

  • March 4, 2011, 11:11 a.m. CST

    These guys are fucking faggots!

    by Amazing Maurice

    They're always hanging around in hotel rooms, playing with each others balls and cramming stuff up each others asses. Look at that pic for fuck's sake.

  • March 4, 2011, 1:58 p.m. CST

    Knox can actually act- dunno about the rest...

    by Playkins

    IMHO, that is. I missed the special olympics movie he did, but he was decent in everything else I saw him in.

  • March 4, 2011, 5:11 p.m. CST

    Dunn's an awesome actor

    by Mark

    check him out law and order i think this movies gonna be awesome!!

  • March 4, 2011, 8:04 p.m. CST

    Wild Boyz The Movie!

    by CANT_WAIT_TO_HATE

    Seriously, I love Jackass, CKY & kinda like Viva La Bam, but the most awesome show to come out of it all was The Wild Boyz.

  • March 4, 2011, 10:32 p.m. CST

    Bam's show was completely scripted

    by FrodoFraggins

    so yeah he can act.
