Two days into filming the fourth installment in the cinematic Jackass series, there’s already been an injury. Steve-O and Johnny Knoxville, 46 and 49 respectively, have been hospitalized after an on-set incident involving a treadmill.
“Second day of filming Jackass and already Steve-O and Knoxville are hospitalized by jumping on a full-speed treadmill with band equipment, like a fucking tuba,” co-star Bam Margera states in a clip on his website. “So I’m here at the clinic now taking a piss test. Rock and roll.”
This injury does not effect the theatrical release date of July 2nd, 2021, however. But it really isn’t too much of a surprise that an incident had happened. As both men are now middle-age, the nature of the franchise must definitely take its toll on the stars. And now we’re definitely interested in seeing what this treadmill stunt looked like.
