JACKASS THE MOVIE
JEFF TREMAINE (Director/Producer)
is just another Cinderella story. In 1992, he was hired as the art editorial
director on a new and struggling skateboard magazine called Big Brother. In
time, his leadership and creativity took Big Brother to new and exciting
levels of distribution and notoriety. During his tenure at the magazine,
Tremaine met and became involved with several of the individuals who are
associated with â€˜Jackass" today, most notably freelance writer/stunt
dummy Johnny Knoxville. Through their collaborations on the Big Brother video
series, Tremaine and Knoxville thought it would be funny to make a run at the
television industry with their absurd ideas, so they enlisted the aid of
longtime friend Spike Jonze. After a year-and-a-half of producing the
"Jackass" television series for MTV, the trio once again returned to
the network's executive offices, this time pitching an idea for a major motion
picture based on expanding the already ridiculous "Jackass" concept.
Nobody expected the joke would actually make it this far.
