Jackass and Zombieland sequels 'to be filmed in 3D'

The cast of Jackass
The previous Jackass films have earned $164m (98m) worldwide

The latest movies in the Jackass and Zombieland franchises will be filmed in 3D, according to trade magazine Variety.

Horror comedy Zombieland, starring Woody Harrelson, earned $85.2m (£51m) worldwide and topped the US box office.

Producer Gavin Polone said 3D technology would make a planned sequel a "more visceral experience".

Paramount has confirmed that filming on Jackass 3, starring Johnny Knoxville, will start in January 2010.

Its producers have not commented on whether the film will be shot in 3D, although director Jeff Tremaine is understood to be conducting camera tests.

The two previous movies, spawned from the hit MTV show, have earned a combined $164m (£98m) worldwide.
