‘Jeepers Creepers 3′ Is Happening…Soon

Jeepers-Creepers-2001-justin-long-31149166-1200-777

While STYD was the first to stir the pot, Bloody Disgusting’s sources reveal that Victor Salva is “close” to shooting his long-gestured Jeepers Creepers 3.

While full production isn’t underway just yet, Salva has begun preparation by shooting a scene back in October for the sequel to his slasher franchise that helped kill the nauseating Scream rip-offs from the late 90′s.

Jonathan Breck and Ray Wise has both been rumored to return in the tentatively titled Jeepers Creepers III: Cathedral.

MGM’s awesome 2001 film, which starred Gina Philips, Justin Long, and Jonathan Breck, took in $38M at the box office, which showed studios that horror fans wanted to see creatures back on the big screen. It was intricate in helping films like Freddy vs. Jason and Texas Chainsaw Massacre get off the ground.

In it, “a brother and sister driving home for spring break encounter a flesh-eating creature in the isolated countryside that is on the last day of its ritualistic eating spree.

The 2003 sequel made over $65M worldwide. It’s sort of a shock that it’s taken a decade for the third to get off the ground.

    I for one, would love for this to get made. Hope it actually happens.

  • FreddyKrueger13

    I’ve been waiting so long to see this, I so hope this is true.

    So… While I agree with your statement about it being a relief to be able to watch something OTHER than all of the Scream continuations, I couldn’t disagree with you more about Jeepers Creepers being an integral part in Freddy vs. Jason and ANOTHER Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie being successful in their releases. Now, don’t get me wrong, I own all of the movies from all three franchises, yes, even The Next Generation, which is perhaps one of the cheesiest horror films in existence… and maybe their mainstream success is due, in part, to other mainstream horror flicks being made that cater to the “new” generation of horror fans, but you have to remember that the Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th and Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies have survived for over or close to 30 years of existence. They’ve been around and have had loyal fan bases for longer than I’ve been on Earth! They are still the “go to” horror movies… These are the movies that most of us “younger” horror fans can say that really made us interested in the genre. And they are the quintessential films for those a bit older than me. (Personally, mine was The Lost Boys, but… whatever….) Can we say that about Jeepers Creepers? No. The first movie was fine… Not the best horror movie I’ve seen, but by far, not the worst, Jeepers Creepers Two… Well, eh… But can you say that these, Jeepers Creepers, movies are going to still be coveted, discussed and continued 30 years in the future? Probably not. The fans are the ones that made FvJ and TCM successes… They come from all generations and all walks of life… They grew up on these films and have rooted for these killers for years… Jeepers Creepers, and its subsequent remakes, had nothing to do with the fact that Freddy vs. Jason grossed so much in the box offices… I’m looking forward to seeing this film, but it will never be one of my favourites, while Freddy, Jason, and Leatherface will always live in infamy for me. And that’s the way it should be. ::end rant::

      I don’t think he was saying that JC made FvJ or the the TCM them more successful. But what I think he is saying is that it showed the studios that they could make a good amount of money with horror movies that went “teen” horror like the scream movies, I know what you did last summer and the whole pg13 phase of crappy “horror” movies that came out at that time

      • sillylung1192

        Sorry about the grammar mistakes, it sucks trying to type on my phone

  • mobstar67

    maybe it took so long because people get more creeped out by Victor Salva being a convicted pedophile and as long as he is a registered “sex offender” it will be just a little harder getting big projects off and the proper financing.

    • Spike0037

      You right bit look at RomanAtlanta

    • Spike0037

      t Roman polankski can win an Oscar. Escape to France and not be extradited and still actors want to work with him.

  • Blood-Sicles

    The first Jeepers Creepers is one of my all time favorite horror movies (and has aged pretty damn well, aside from those ancient cell phones). The beginning was terror perfected. Would love to see this happen, especially if they’re going for a theatrical release. I’m ready to be (genuinely) terrified again.

  • Keegsta

    I have been waiting for this forever. Please, make it so!

  • Spike0037

    I been waiting for a long time for this movie as well. but the fact that Victor Salva is a convted se offender has not helped.

  • VictorCrowley

    I agree with the beginning of the first Jeepers Creepers. I remember being legitimately spooked by what was happening during the tension build. For me, the movie was well on it’s way to becoming an instant classic……………..until they showed the Creeper up close for the first time. There, they lost me, and I’ve never come back.

    • mobstar67

      i felt the same way about Hatchet.. movie was heading in the right direction and then i got a good look at those Victor Crowley prostetics and makeup and then they lost me..just like that..
      nah not really but im not getting how the Creeper could put you off and not Victor Crowley..actually im not sure your even a fan of Hatchet but im taking a wild guess by your screen name..

  • djblack1313

    YES PLEASE! YES PLEASE!! PLEASE let this movie happen!!

    • Lion7718

      ^^^what he/she said…lol

      • djblack1313

        Lion7718, he! :)

  • Krug09

    Do people really over look the fact that this sick fuck raped and video taped his fat ass molesting a 12 year old boy? I have never been molested or raped before but i know people who have and you all who know about his crime should be ashamed he ruined a kids life. Stop being so fucking selfish and wanting another horror movie and grow some balls. fucking sick.

    • FreddyKrueger13

      Did anyone here say they were okay with what Salva did? I for one am not, the man is a sick bastard. It’s unfortunate that Jeepers Creepers was made by him but that does not change the fact that it was a great movie. I like the movie, not the man.

  • Krug09

    You should also stop reporting updates on a convicted pedophile who ruined a kids career and life. Stop ignoring it and stop reporting his updates, WHICH, go no where anyway.

  • deep_below

    Eh, I’m on the fence about this one. I LOVE the first film and the second was enjoyable enough, but I can’t really see the series going anywhere but down with more sequels, especially in the current era of “cash in on anything with an established name for a quick buck” movies. I’ll hold off judgement until there’s more info to go on.

    • Evan3

      Have faith @deep_below – Victor Salva is still involved, so this doesn’t appear to be a cynical cash grab yet.

  • Joe-Banger

    @Mr. Disgusting, I like your statement about killing the nauseating scream rip offs. Thats true and also funny in an ironic sense because Ive thought for a long time how scream was a rip off of real slasher movies itself! @mobstar67, we are all in a bad economy right now so that will make it harder number one to get financing and number two being a “sex offender” does’nt really mean much of anything. All kinds of people are being put into that category by the higher ups without knowing or caring about the facts. Ive seen it happen to my friend Kyms son Adam last year. That there makes me want to add onto an original horror film Im working on called “False Arrest”. More details to come.

    • deep_below

      To be fair, the facts in this case are pretty clear: Salva was convicted and served time for committing a sexual offense against a 12 year old (the charges for which he plead guilty to in court). That’s public record and easily verifiable.

    • mobstar67

      Joe Bang this guy Victor Salva is not some wrongfully labeled sex offender…He’s the real deal…I wont go into to much details as to his offenses against some boys 12 and 14 years of age and he was convicted and have been public information after his trial transcripts were released in 1988-89.I am sure people get thrown into this catagory unfairly but this is not the case with Mr.Salva…
      There is no doubt that the nature of his convictions have interfered with his film making ability and ability to get films made in a big way..
      with that said i really liked Jeepers Creepers..thought it too be a very good movie although i was not nearly as impressed with the second part..
      Hopefully he can do this one right and end this trilogy right.

  • ThunderDragoon

    It’s about damn time!!!! This has been my most anticipated movie since the end of the 2nd one. Holy crap, I can’t believe it’s finally going to happen. I’m so freakin’ excited!!! We need more news, though. Just to be sure everything is actually on track. AH!!! XD

  • Joe-Banger

    @deep_below, I was ready for any rebuttal, Adam was forced to take a plea deal, take your chances and get 20 years if you lose or 3 years if you plead guilty. He took the 3 years in prison. People get bullied into jail and prison alot anymore! Especially the poor, verify that fact!

  • Spike0037

    OK first off i want to say @MrDisgusting you must make this site mobile friendly you really do. Seconded why am I the only one who mentioned Roman Polanski. And this is from wiki ( Polanski was arrested for the statutory rape of a 13-year-old girl and pleaded guilty to the charge of unlawful sex with a minor. To avoid sentencing, Polanski fled to his home in London, eventually settling in France. More than 32 years later, in September 2009, he was temporarily arrested by Swiss police at the request of U.S. authorities, who unsuccessfully asked for his extradition.During an interview for a later film documentary, he offered his apology to the woman,and later said that he had regretted that episode for the last 33 years.) He was nominated 3 times after that for an Oscar and won once for directing for The Pianist and a lot of people stud up and applauded for him. Victor Salva did his time. I am not saying it OK. But for thouse who are lamb basting him. LOOK AT HOLLYWOOD AS A WHOLE.

    • MrDisgusting

      We have a new design coming soon that’s sole focus is to be mobile friendly. After we launch, watch all the other horror sites copy us (again).

      • Spike0037

        @MrDisgusting so I will finally be able to go off on you when you say something that annoys me on here on my phone. You rock. Should beout by years end

        • MrDisgusting

          Embrace debate! I can take the heat! I love a good conversation :)

      • James-Alan

        Is this new design something you’ve started recently, or is it…long-gestured?

  • Spike0037

    @MrDisgusting I know or you would have shut this site down a long time ago. but back to my other qustion should we be getting mobile before or affter the new year.

    • MrDisgusting

      That’s an @blueteamno question, although I would say New Year.

  • Jeff Rittenour

    Silva doesn’t deserve to be making movies….I loved 1 and 2 and then like everyone else found out he’s a kiddie fiddler…like Arnold said in (the high underrated and HILARIOUS) Last Action Hero: “No sequel for you!”…

  • Jeff Rittenour

    oh and Polanski isn’t the same thing as Silva AT ALL…please. In Silva’s case, look at the picture above and replace the Creeper with HIM and justin long with a 12 yr old boy and that’s all you need lol ;)

  • bloodytullius

    Seriously? Who are the people marketing these film companies. A Jeepers Creepers 3 would be so unbelievably successful.

  • asheboro

    Shouldn’t it take 23 years for it to get off the ground?

  • ThunderDragoon

    It’s been so long since an update. I wonder if it went back into development hell.
