Jeepers Creepers 3:Cathedral....Is the Creeper finally returning?


It has now been 7 years since Jeepers Creepers 2 and talks of a third instalment have been rumoured since JP2’s release in 2003.
Director and writer Victor Salva has assured fans that the movie was imminent since 2007, but with MGM being auctioned and script re-writes, the movie has been delayed time and time again.

So what is actually happening with this third instalment?



The 411.…..

The plot of the movie is said to surround Trish Jenner who has a recurring nightmares where her son Darry (Named after her brother) suffers the same fate as her brother did, 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.


The latest bit of news on this movie was announced by actor Ray Wise back in March this year, who played Jack Taggart snr in Jeepers Creepers 2.

He stated "The script for 'Jeepers Creepers 3' is complete," Wise said. "They're in pre-production planning now. I'm hopeful that sometime in the next two or three months we'll get a start date...[MGM] definitely wants to do it, and it's just a matter of putting together all the final financing I believe...I think it's gonna be a go in a couple of months."

Director Victor Salva has also stated some details on the movie and its premise….

“The movie will be called Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral, and Jonathan Breck, the Creeper, will once again return to reprise his role. Though we have decided, after much fan feedback, to give him his truck back for the new film," He also stated that…
“Gina Phillips, the actress from the first film, will also return for Jeepers Creepers 3 who is playing Trisha Jenner, 23 years later, a successful business woman who has her own teenage son, Darry, named after her long lost brother,"


Now we are in September not much more light has been shared on this movie, other than IMDb website has slated the release date for January 1st 2011 and the movie is in Production.

Casting announced so far is Gina Phillips reprising her role from the original as Trish Jenner, Ray Wise reprising his role from the second movie as Jack Taggart, Jonathan Breck donning the Creeper again and Luke Edwards reprising his role as Jack Taggart Jnr. Other cast include Lauren Bosworth, Marieh Delfino and Brandon Smith.

With the lack of info, and just over a mere 3 months away from the stated release date, I reserve much doubt we will actually see this movie that soon. Which makes it even more doubtful about this movie being rumoured in 3D. What is more realistic is the gossip stating this movie being a straight-to-DVD instalment although Victor Salva has announced he would be pushing for a theatrical release.

I really liked the franchise especially the original. The sequel did have a lack of scares than its predecessor but was still fun. And with the hope that the movie will go back to what made the first work so well, I really hope Jeepers Creepers 3 does see the light of day and a theatrical release. Its just a question now of ‘time will tell’!

I loved these movies on a campy, Saturday afternoon Plan 9 Ed Wood level. I think the third one will probably go straight to DVD and then get a SyFy cable airing.

I would like to see a movie if they do bring back the original character from the first one. I would also like to know more about the origin of the creeper and why he does what he does, where does he come from, etc. The original was really scary, but I felt it lacked a background/origin story.

I love Jeepers Creepers 1 & 2. In fact I just saw it again a couple of weeks ago. Didn't have any idea there was going to be a 3rd part. Can't wait. That's great news!

Has it really been 7 years... god... how old am I now? The first Jeepers Creepers was pretty scary. I caught it in theatres.

Interesting read, Dempsey! Thanks!

i remembered watching either the first or second, oh gosh, it sent all my hair standing! but it was really exciting watching these kinda horror films, with a bunch of girls screaming together. :p

My Movie Sense is tingling...have a feeling it'll be shown in "Creepy 3-D".

I am starting to like horror films more and more but I am still not sure I'd like a standard slasher film like this. Might give it a try though. I prefer supernatural thrillers myself.

I see you want to write for the big magazines. You should join us at BlogCritics.org. We're always looking for new writers and many of our writers have been discovered by big magazines and even had books published because of their involvement with the site. I was even approached by a music site the other day to write for them (after they read my articles on BlogCritics) but it is too early to say whether anything will come of that.

Thanks for your comments, good to see I'm not the only one who would love to see this movie, lets hope it gets a theatrical release.

RE: Emm, also thanks for your comment and the offer, I will certainly look into joining you :)

I'm a JC huge fan! I've seen the original 3+ times and loved it more and more with each subsequent viewing. :) The sequel was ridiculous, but funny nonetheless. Anyway. I'm so looking forward to this third installment. It should be great fun, just like the previous two. ;)

Where did the creeper come from? The first two were pretty good for that time. I can't wait to see what they came up with on the third one.

You realize therefore considerably when it comes
to this topic, produced me for my part believe it from so many various angles.
Its like men and women don't seem to be fascinated unless it is one thing to do with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs excellent. All the time care for it up!
