Jeepers Creepers 3 is in Preproduction

Jeepers Creepers 3 - Jeepers Creepers third instalment.

Via a BD exclusive, we have learned that Jeepers Creepers 3 is currently in preproduction and will be lensing in Louisiana. The site is also reporting that The Creeper’s truck with the BEATNGU license plate will be heavily featured in the latest installment.

About a year ago, a Canadian casting agency actually pulled down a casting notice after concern about director Victor Salva’s past arose. One fan later reached out to Stan Spry (one of the film’s producers) on Twitter to see if the project had been nixed, altogether. Spry reported that they were seeking domestic distribution for the film and that the picture was still very much alive.

What we know about the third installment in the series so far is that Victor Salva will be returning to write and direct. Prior to the previous roadblock, actors Jonathan Breck (The Creeper), Gina Phillips (Trish), and Brandon Smith (Sergeant Tubbs) were expected to be returning. Rumors have circulated that Gina Phillips may also be returning but that has not yet been substantiated.

As for the storyline: The latest installment sees Tubbs joining forces with a task force intent upon destroying The Creeper for once and for all. Naturally, chaos ensues and nothing goes according to plan.In an earlier statement, director Victor Salva offered the following insight: “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.”

Last we had heard, Francis Ford Coppola (who produced the first two) had signed on to co-produce the threequel with Odyssey Media, and The Cartel and Kirk D’Amico was on board to executive produce.

The two previous films collectively grossed over $120 million at the global box office. Stay tuned for more on this title as it is announced!
