‘Jeepers Creepers 3’ News

A while ago, I had mentioned that Victor Salva was in fact writing and directing a new direct to DVD installment in the ‘Jeepers Creepers’ franchise for MGM. It turns out now that the infamous director is eyeing for a theatrical release.

Moviehole.net gives us this:

The film, tentatively titled ‘Jeepers Creeper 3: The Creeper Walks Among Us’, “includes a prologue in the Old West and might bring back several characters from the first two films 20 years later. The script and story will be big on scares and give us plenty more of the traditional Creeper creepiness, with a few more bits thrown in about what it might be and where it came from”, says the filmmaker.

MGM had “suggested that we go direct to video with the third in the trilogy, but we hope that the exciting entity that the new MGM is becoming realizes that both ‘Jeepers Creepers’ films set [then-] records for their Labor Day weekend box-office openings, before each went on to make over $100 million apiece on DVD,” he tells Fangoria. “I believe a theatrical release is critical to this kind of success on video. I don’t think you can have one without the other, and it would be a shame not to be able to see what I have planned for ‘Jeepers 3’ up on the big screen.”

Now, although I feel conflicted on supporting this film, (Click HERE to find out why) I can’t deny that I’m a little curious to see what this man has up his sleeve for his upcoming plans for “The Creeper” and company. (a.k.a. VICTIMS)

I was not a huge of the sequel and thought it was disappointing compared to the original film. I thought the story was going to follow the original story.  I was hoping that the last image of Darry (Justin Long) getting his eyes carved out in the first film was really a premonition from the annoying psychic, and that Trish (Gina Phillips) was going to have to save her brother in the sequel.   Instead, we got a sequel about disposable characters, a thankless undead cameo from Justin Long, and gratuitous shots of shirtless guys to please the director.

However, if Victor Salva is bringing back characters from the series, I will be interested in seeing what he is going to do with the film. Although, I have to say that the ‘Old West’ prologue worries me a little. (Well, it can’t be any worse than the last scene from the sequel.)

I’m guessing this sequel will make it in the theatres instead of DTD, because he did have a point about both previous films breaking Labor Day weekend records.

Are you interested in seeing “The Creeper” strike again?
