Action Park in Vernon to get movie starring Johnny Knoxville

There is now going to be a film about the famous Action Park in Vernon.



According to Hollywood media outlet "Deadline," the movie is set to start filming in March and star Johnny Knoxville.



The premise will feature Knoxville and friends operating their own theme park.



Action Park opened in the late 1970s in Vernon and ran until the 1990s. The park was well known for people getting hurt before it shut down.



It reopened under the name of Mountain Creek, but was then bought by the original owners and opened under Action Park once again.



By 2015, Action Park continued to top the list as the New Jersey amusement park with the most reported injuries.
