'Jackass 3.5' to be released in Web installments

NEW YORK (AP) - December 1, 2010

Producers Paramount Pictures and MTV Films announced Tuesday that "Jackass 3.5" will be released in weekly online installments, with a subsequent feature-length film released digitally in March. Exactly where "Jackass 3.5" will be available wasn't announced.

The footage will feature surplus stunts from "Jackass 3D," which has earned more than $116 million at the box office since its October release.

In 2007, "Jackass 2.5" similarly followed "Jackass Number Two." It claimed to be the first broadband movie distributed by a major studio. "Jackass 2.5" was streamed for a week for free by Blockbuster Inc., then made available for download and on DVD.

A representative for the film says "Jackass 3.5" and "Jackass 3D" are different projects.
