Ryan Dunn's unreleased film 'Living Will' grows controversial following untimely death - see trailer
"Jackass" star Ryan Dunn was mourned by friends and family at a private memorial service on Wednesday and now his unreleased final film, "Living Will" is causing controversy as the stuntman potrays a ghost.
Dunn died on Monday when he crashed his Porsche in Pennsylvania in an accident that killed himself and his passenger. In the trailer for Dunn's unreleased film, "Living Will," the stuntman-turned-actor hauntingly says, "Being dead is the best thing that's ever happened to me ever."
In the film, Dunn plays a ghost named Belch who comes back to bother his surviving friend when he begins dating Belch's cousin. Dunn's best friend and "Jackass" cohort Bam Margera also appears in the film.
The movie was shot for roughly $250,000 and was due for an October release, but may now be delayed. The Wrap reported that Lionsgate had recently purchased the film but had not planned a theatrical release.
On Wednesday, family and friends congregated at a funeral home in what was described as "a celebration of Dunn's life."
The daredevil's friends who attended the service included Margera, who attended with his wife, Missy, and parents, Phil and April Margera, Johnny Knoxville and "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" actors Glenn Howerton and Rob McElhenney, MTV said.
The official cause of death for the 34-year-old star of MTV's daredevil reality show and the other man, Zachary Hartwell, was determined to be blunt force trauma and thermal trauma.
According to a preliminary toxicology report, Dunn's blood alcohol content was .196. The legal limit in Pennsylvania is .08. The police also said an initial investigation of the crash showed that Dunn's vehicle was traveling between 132 and 140 miles per hour at the time of the collision.
Dunn's death was mourned by fans and his "Jackass" colleagues and friends, including Bam Margera, who broke down in tears on Tuesday as he visited the site of the accident.
Film critic Roger Ebert later stirred anger after saying on his Twitter page that "Friends don't let jackasses drink and drive." He said on Tuesday he did not mean to insult Dunn and that his Tweet was "not intended as cruel."
Dunn had posted a photo of himself and two other men holding what appear to be alcoholic drinks on his Tumblr page hours before the crash. The picture has since been removed.
Dunn, who celebrated his 34th birthday on June 11, appeared on "Jackass" the series between 2000 and 2002 as well as in "Jackass" films such as "Jackass 3D." His daredevil stunts included shoving a toy car into his rectum - as seen in the first Jackass movie in 2002.
Dunn also took part in spinoff shows such as "Viva La Bam" and "Bam's Unholy Union." His new series, "Proving Ground," began airing on the cable network G4 on June 14. After his death, the channel pulled the show from its schedule indefinitely.
