Jeepers Creepers 3 has seemingly been locked in movie-making purgatory for some time. We've known since 2011 that director Victor Salva has wanted to return to the franchise, but so far the only thing we've heard are rumors and speculation.
Last year, we did receive a fairly dodgy looking poster and an obviously incorrect release date of June 1, 2013. At the time, we didn't think much to it, and it seems we were right to. However, now, ShockTillYouDrop have got their hands on information which seems a lot more reliable.
According to 'two excellent sources', the long-awaited sequel has received some major movement in the past few weeks, with one day of shooting reportedly in the can. STYD also reached out to Salva for more information, and although he couldn't say much, the director did reveal:
There may finally be some very good news for those waiting for the third Jeepers film to go before the cameras.
So far, little is known about the actual script for the film. In the batch of 'information' we received last year there was also a synopsis which read as follows:
Trish Jenner (Gina Phillips) is now a mother of a teenage son named Darry, named after the brother she lost 23 years ago (played in the original movie by Justin Long). Trish has a recurring nightmare where her son is being killed by the Creeper. Determined to prevent this from happening, Trish, who is now a rich and powerful woman, sets out on a final quest with Jack Taggart Sr. and Jr. to end the Creeper's reign of terror once and for all.
But given the lack of validity for the other information, I think you should take it with a big pinch of salt.
Of course, the good news is that at least some progress is being made in finishing a Jeepers Creepers trilogy.
What do you think? About time, or already too late?
