Exclusive: There Has Been Some Movement on Jeepers Creepers 3

The Creeper Jeepers CreepersA few days ago, I teased via Twitter that I was sitting on some information regarding a dormant horror franchise.  I wanted a few days to suss out some more information before taking this to a news item, but I'm feeling confident about it now.  While prowling the halls of the American Film Market, I picked up some rumblings regarding Jeepers Creepers 3.

Two excellent sources told me that there is renewed movement on the long-mooted sequel.  Major movement, in fact, as I was told one day of shooting is already in the can.

Shock Till You Drop reached out to director Victor Salva – who helmed the first two entries released in 2001 and 2003 – and while he offered some off-the-record information, he did say, "There may finally be some very good news for those waiting for the third Jeepers film to go before the cameras."  He wasn't at liberty to say much more.

Unfortunately, I don't have any details as to what Jeepers Creepers 3 is about or which script Salva is going with (he's had a few ideas for the sequel over the years).

Why it has taken this long for Jeepers Creeper 3 to get off the ground is a genuine head-scratcher.  The previous two entries, combined, have grossed over $120 million worldwide and "The Creeper" has attracted his own horror following.  We'll keep you posted if more details come along!

    Great news. I really disliked Part 2 when I saw it in theaters, but have come to really enjoy it. I’m all for a third entry. Way overdue.

  • Captain Cook

    Excellent.

  • Felix Espinoza

    Umm according to AMC NEWS the film is done and is made. Its only waiting on a distributor to pick it up. If not itll be head straight to bluray/dvd.

    • RTurek

      That is without a doubt incorrect. I can assure you of that.

    • Justin Goodwin

      Yea, that is wrong. They talked about the 3rd movie possibly heading straight to dvd/blu-ray but filming hasnt even taken place yet.

  • taffy2k2k1

    Awesome news, two of my all time fav horror movies.

  • J Jett

    Ryan, i hope your source’s info is good! i love this franchise (part 1 more than part 2) and i’m dying for the 3rd film to FINALLY(!!!) come to fruition. i hope the rumored(?) storyline involving Gina Philips (Trish from the first film) is still the plan. i really like the actress and her Trish character.

  • ariessiren

    Yeah two sucked but the first is a classic

  • ariessiren

    Would love to see a third, that can do justice to the first film.

  • Matthew Klapmeyer

    • a22matic

      Me too! Loved both, but part 2 is my favorite. Saw it in the theater on its release date. That was some scary stuff! Had to watch part 1 on DVD, but I liked it too. Been waiting for a LONG time for part 3. Bring it on!

    UPDATE: This story was dated November 14, 2013. It’s now September 28, 2014 and there is still no word at all regarding actual filming or anything else that might actually lead to a Jeepers Creepers 3. As much as I would like to see this movie come about, we might as well face the truth: It’s NOT gonna happen.

    Well……….a year’s gone by since this article.Any update?Why is this taking so long?I know I want to see a third installment.Hopefully after waiting this long,a great film will emerge and possibly a series of sequels explaining the Creeper’s origin in a convincing manner.If anyone’s heard anything please leave a reply.Thanks.
