New title for Jeepers Creepers 3
Posted by JPX
From bloodydisgusting, We broke the news exclusively back in November that Victor Salva was in talks to direct the third installment of his JEEPERS CREEPERS franchise for MGM. Various news stories have broke since then, with rumors of a possible back-to-back shoot with a fourth film. Today it was revealed that the film will now carry a new moniker and that it is about to begin shooting. Read on for the story.
Once titled JEEPERS CREEPERS 3: THE CREEPER WALKS AMONG US, Fangoria received word that the film will now be titled Jeepers Creepers III: Cathedral and is about to enter preproduction.
“The script, now titled JEEPERS CREEPERS III: CATHEDRAL, is about to enter preproduction at MGM and does include a prologue in the Old West where we see how the Creeper became a frightening part of cowboy and Native American folklore...”
Salva also reveals some plot points of the story and explains how Gina Philips makes her return to the franchise, news which we also broke exclusively here in March.
"...one aspect of the third film features Trish Jenner [again played by Gina Philips from the original film], who, 23 years later, has a teenage son of her own, named Darry after her long lost brother. Trish is having a terrible recurring dream where her son meets the same terrible fate as her brother. Now a rich and powerful woman, Trish is determined to stop the Creeper once and for all.”
Salva also teases that "It also revisits characters from both films, lets us learn more about what the Creeper is and, by popular demand, reintroduces the infamous Creeper truck.”
