FUNNY BUSI­NESS

OK! (USA) - - Insider -

No, you’re not be­ing Punk’d. Ash­ton Kutcher may be re­turn­ing for a movie ver­sion of his wildly pop­u­lar MTV show! “Para­mount is hun­gry for a new prank-based film fran­chise now that the Jack­ass movies have run their course, and the buzz is that they’re try­ing to woo Ash­ton into par­tic­i­pat­ing,” an in­sider tells OK!, adding that Ash­ton — who briefly re­vived the show in 2012 with Justin Bieber serv­ing as host — is “on the verge of say­ing yes.” But even if he does, he’ll have to keep the news on the DL. “You can’t an­nounce a Punk’d movie and ex­pect to get enough good footage of un­sus­pect­ing celebri­ties,” adds the in­sider. “If Ash­ton’s go­ing to do this, he needs to make sure he can pull it off.”

“There’s a long list of celebri­ties who have never been Punk’d, in­clud­ing folks like Drake and Kevin Hart,” warns an in­sider.
