Two years after it was first announced, and with a fouth film already on the way, a trailer for Jeepers Creepers 3 has landed. It looks like this…
As you can see, the film is getting a limited release in US cinemas at the end of this month, and it’ll be available on disc and streaming services shortly after.
Over a decade since Jeepers Creepers 2 failed to recapture quite what made the original the success it was, plans have been announced to bring the series back to life.
Victor Salva (a man whose background inevitably clouds his films), who wrote and directed the first two films, is returning for Jeepers Creepers 3for Myriad Pictures. Jonathan Breck and Brandon Smith are back as The Creeper and Sergeant Davis Tubbs respectively.
In a statement announcing the new production, Salva said that “writing and directing a new Jeepers film, the first in over a decade, is incredibly exciting 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”.
The first third or so of Jeepers Creepers remains a really tense piece of work, before it becomes a monster movie. We’ll see what direction things go with the next one, probably in 2017. Jeepers Creepers 3 will shoot in Vancouver in early 2016.
