MUMBAI: Paramount’s Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, in which Johnny Knoxville punks strangers while in character as senior citizen Irving Zisman.

The previous three Jackass films grossed $79mn, $84mn, and $170mn worldwide for Paramount – but they also kept to the show’s signature disconnected shocks and pranks vs. a Borat-esque hidden camera narrative. 

Bad Grandpa is scripted by Knoxville, director Jeff Tremaine, and Spike Jonze, and will open on 25 October against Fox and Ridley Scott’s The Counselor with no other major competition.
