Jackass stars Evel Knievel film

Daredevil Johnny Knoxvilles biopic about his superhero Knievel

JACKASS daredevil Johnny Knoxville has produced a warts-and-all documentary about stunt legend Evel Knievel.

If the trailer for 'Being Evel' is anything to go by then the film certainly looks a lot more promising than the glut of Knievel documentaries released since his death in 2007.

For starters, Knoxville has always been a big Knievel fan and nearly lost his manhood in a back-flip bike stunt as part for an MTV tribute to the American stunt legend.

Knoxville said of 'Being Evel': "I didn't think of Evel Knievel as a daredevil, I thought of him as a superhero. Nobody ever went for it like that before... It's a crazy story, it's just fast, faster and disaster."

The film premiered at the Sundance film festival earlier this year and is next being shown on July 20 at the New Zealand International Film Festival. No general release date has yet been announced.
