The third film in the Jeepers Creepers franchise is finally being made!
It was confirmed back in early 2016 that the film will be happening, but after filming delays there was confusion at exactly when that would be. Fortunately it has been confirmed that filming is back on track and will start next month in Louisiana.
Gina Philips is set to return as Trish in the film. Victor Salva is also set to return as writer and director of the film which goes before cameras this week!
According to IMDB, Jeepers Creepers 3’s synopsis is as follows: “A successful mother Patricia Trish Jenner teams up with witnesses to a murdering spree by a winged flesh-eating monster in hopes to end his disastrous killings once and for all.”
This is backed slightly by the original synopsis of the film. Movieweb.com explains that; “the original synopsis revealed the story is set on the final day of The Creeper’s 23-day feeding frenzy, with Tubbs returning to form a task force, “hellbent on destroying the creeper for good.” However due to complications with the directors past, there could very well be changes made to the film, meaning these synopses could be all but fiction.”
Jeepers Creepers 1 received low reviews for a film of its type and its sequel even lower achieving a 36 on metacritic. Whether Jeepers Creepers 3 will do better than the original is unclear, although im not getting my hopes up.
As of now, we do not yet know when the film will be released.
