'Dying was the best thing to ever happen to me': Jackass star Ryan Dunn's haunting words in last unseen film role

By Daily Mail Reporter

Last role: Ryan Dunn played a character called Belch in the movie Living Will

Film studio Lionsgate are considering the future of an unreleased film starring Jackass' Ryan Dunn.

The 34-year-old reality star, who was killed in a high speed car accident on Monday, played a ghost called Belch who returns to haunt his best friend in the low budget comedy.

Before his fatal crash, Lionsgate had been planning a October release but now it may be delayed, according to The Wrap.

The film's trailer, which opens with the quote, 'Call no man happy till he is dead,' shows a jovial Ryan sporting a full beard and playing practical jokes on his unsuspecting friends.

'Being dead is the best thing that ever happened to me. Ever,' says Ryan's character during the eerie three minute clip.

Ryan, starred in the movie alongside his real life best friend Bam Margera, who was inconsolable earlier this week following Ryan's death in a tragic car accident in Pennsylvania.

The Jackass and Viva La Bam star had been drinking at a bar with friends in the hours before the Monday morning crash, which also killed his passenger, Zachary Hartwell.

He is said to have drank three beers and taken shots before getting behind the wheel shortly after 2am.

Police say Dunn was travelling at around 132mph and 140mph in a 55mph zone when his Porsche 911 flew off the road in West Goshen and burst into flames.

It is not known if the pair died from the crash impact or were unable to escape the vehicle as it exploded in a fireball.

West Goshen Police Chief Michael Carroll, who was involved in the accident reconstruction, described it as the worst crash he had ever seen.

It has emerged that Dunn had notched up 23 driving convictions, including ten for speeding, before his accident, it was revealed yesterday.
