There has been talk of a third Jeepers Creepers film for many years, but tonight Bloody Disgusting have learnt that not only is the third film been confirmed, but it will go into production early next year, with original director Victor Salva returning to helm.
Jonathan Breck is confirmed to return as The Creeper, with Brandon Smith as Sergeant Davis Tubbs.
“Jeepers Creepers 3 will show events on the last day of the Creeper’s twenty-three day feeding frenzy, as the skeptical Sergent Tubbs teams up with a task force hellbent on destroying the Creeper for good. The Creeper fights back in gory glory as its enemies grow closer than ever before to learning the secret of its dark origins.”
“Writing and directing a new Jeepers film, the first in over a decade, is incredibly exciting,” said director Victor Salva. “For me and I believe for Jeepers fans all over the world that have been asking for more.
“What will go before cameras as Jeepers Creepers 3 is a new and terrifying chapter from the Jeepers universe. We are bringing back the Creeper’s truck, and will be addressing the big questions about The Creeper: what it is, where it came from and why it does what it does.
“More exciting though, this will easily be the most frightening rollercoaster -ride -of- a-Jeepers film that has been made to date.”
Francis Ford Coppola’s American Zoetrope, who produced the first two films, will co-produce the film along with Kirk Shaw and Surai Gohill’s Odyssey Media, and Stan Spry’s The Cartel. Coppola, Shaw and Spry will serve as producers on Jeepers Creepers 3, and Myriad’s Kirk D’Amico will executive produce.
The film is slated to go into production in Vancouver in first quarter of 2016.
