Originals back for Jeepers Creepers 3

Originals back for Jeepers Creepers 3

“Jeepers Creepers” director Victor Salva tells Dread Central that the third instalment in the popular horror film series has nearly got its coin.

“The financing is just coming together, so perhaps we will be in preproduction shortly,” Salva says. “We have been saying this for a year now, but that’s really about all I can with any certainty.”

He’s certain of one another thing – who will be starring in the film.

Series’ star Jonathan Breck will reprise his role as the ‘Creeper’, says the director.

“Breck will of course don his wings once again as our favorite flying man-eater, though we have decided, after much fan feedback, to give him his truck back for the new film”.

And Gina Phillips, the heroine of the original film, will also be back.

It’ll be “ 23 years later” says the filmmaker, and she’s now “ a successful business woman who has her own teenage son, Darry, named after her long lost brother.”

The new film will be set in new terrain, says Salva.

“We have decided that the third film should, like one and two, be different from each other in look and locale – after all, the highway in question “runs the length of the state. So you may be missing your Spanish moss again and much of the story takes place in the desert part of our fictitious Jeepers state that includes Poho, Pertwilla, and Kissell County.”

2001’s “Jeepers Creepers” opened in 2,944 theaters and took in a domestic gross of $37,904,175. It told of a brother (Justin Long) and sister (Gina Phillips) who are returning from college when they see what appears to be someone dumping bodies down a hole near an old church. When the figure speeds away in an old truck, the pair go back to investigate, they find a cavern full of bodies. Then a creature starts hunting them down, that needs to eat fresh body parts to survive.
