It seems we're all in store for a new dose of the Creeper in the near future. Fangoria recently talked to writer/director Victor Salva about the upcoming Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral and confirmed the new title of the film as well.
"The script, now titled Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral, is about to enter preproduction at MGM and does include a prologue in the Old West where we see how the Creeper became a frightening part of cowboy and Native American folklore," Salva said.
"I will say," Salva added, "that one aspect of the third film features Trish Jenner (Gina Philips from the original film), who, 23 years later, has a teenage son of her own, named Darry after her long lost brother. Trish is having a terrible recurring dream where her son meets the same terrible fate as her brother. Now a rich and powerful woman, Trish is determined to stop the Creeper once and for all."
While Salva wouldn't reveal anything about the film's title, he said that, "it is a large part of the film created especially for all our loyal Jeepers Creepers fans. The new Jeepers-Jeepers Threepers as we affectionately refer to it around here-brings back all the classic ideas of the first film, but brings them horrifyingly full circle. It also revisits characters from both films [Ray Wise from II returns, as does Creeper actor Jonathan Breck], lets us learn more about what the Creeper is and, by popular demand, reintroduces the infamous Creeper truck."
It is unclear when the film will start production or if a release date has been set yet. We'll be sure to update you on this new film as more information arises.
