Renewed 'Jeepers Creepers 3' Interest May Have Film on Fast Track
The Creeper may live again, if a report from Shock Til You Drop is to be believed. During the American Film Market last week, the horror outlet stumbled on some news that there is some renewed interest and active movement on Jeepers Creepers 3, the next sequel in the moderately successful horror series from director Victor Salva. Apparently, one day of shooting has already been completed on the film, and Salva offered some juicy information off the record, but would only offer this tidbit for an actual quote, "There may finally be some very good news for those waiting for the third Jeepers film to go before the cameras."
However, there are no details on a story or how soon this sequel might get off the ground. Jeepers Creepers and the sequel combined have made $122 million worldwide at the box office, which isn't bad considering the films have never really had big stars attached to lead them. Surely fans have been waiting to see The Creeper return for years since the sequel arrived ten years ago. Maybe this long wait has built desire and has allowed some more audiences to find the first two films and get on board with the third. Here's hoping we hear some more news about Jeepers Creepers 3 sooner than later.

The 2nd film was quite a bit better than the first...but I care a lot less about this franchise than I did years ago. I honestly think the eventual 'remake/reboot' is more likely.

Screw this move and screw Victor Salva. Dudes a convicted pedophile who got a slap on the wrist. Not a shock that every movie he makes involves young boys getting messed up or devoured.

Dude that is so true! Every single movie has these pointless shirtless boy scenes and then blam they get mutilated....that's pretty sick.

Who cares if the guy is a pedophile or whatever he got his punishiment and now it's over and even if it wasn't I could care less if he is a pedophile or not I want a Jeepers Creepers 3 movie.

First one was good, second was meh. I would rather not have a third.

Never saw the second one, but the first was a fun watch.

Out of all the many horror characters I actually really enjoyed jeepers creepers. It's one of the better horror character franchises in my opinion. I'm surprised its taken this long to consider a 3rd one. The 2nd definitely left it open for more. first was the best.
