Seems they couldn’t afford Justin Long
Gina Phillips, the hottie who went a few rounds with ‘The Creeper’ in the original “Jeepers Creepers”, is prepping for a re-match. According to Bloody Disgusting, the actress will reprise her role of Trish, the heroine of the 2001 hit, for the forthcoming “Jeepers Creepers 3”.
“I will say that, I can’t talk about it, but I can say we are in talks”, the actress tells the site. “There is a script and there is work being done on it. Here’s the thing, I also produce films, when I have my producer hat on …that’s my job, and when I have my actor hat on, then that’s my job, I try not to intervene unless you have a director who wants your opinion. The great thing about Victor is that he is very collaborative. He not only wanted my input, he almost demanded it, It was always like what do you think what do you think. I trust him and I think he is a very talented writer. If things are to come together, and he wants my input… I have a lot to say!”
