The JACKASS franchise is at its biggest, after being around for over ten years now. The third JACKASS film just released on DVD and Blu-ray, after having a $170 million run. The guys behind the film seem to be ready for a break. So what's next for them?

The man who is usually behind the scenes, director Jeff Tremaine, has now got a non-JACKASS related gig lined up. Tremaine is set to direct a film called REVENGE OF THE JOCKS, the story of three men who were once jocks trying to adjust to the post-jock life in a geek controlled world. The geeks are set to be the bad guys, making the jocks' lives more difficult. This will be the first narrative feature for Tremaine.

It will be cool to see Tremaine's skill at directing a bit more now that he is making the move into features. The plot of REVENGE OF THE JOCKS also sounds pretty hilarious, it sounds like the perfect kind of film for Tremaine to start with.

What do you guys think? Is this project good for Tremaine's first narrative?
