“Every twenty-third spring for twenty three days it gets to…eat.”
The long-gestured Jeepers Creepers 3 is still looking to begin filming early this year.
Myriad Pictures will finance and handle international sales for Jeepers Creepers 3, the long-awaited third installment in the iconic worldwide hit horror franchise, which will be available at the upcoming EFM in Berlin.
The project reunites the original creative team behind the first two films, including writer-director Victor Salva (Powder, Peaceful Warrior), who helmed the first two Jeepers Creepers films.
Jonathan Breck is confirmed to return as The Creeper, with Brandon Smith as Sergeant Davis Tubbs.
“Jeepers Creepers 3 will show events on the last day of the Creeper’s twenty-three day feeding frenzy, as the skeptical Sergent Tubbs teams up with a task force hellbent on destroying the Creeper for good. The Creeper fights back in gory glory as its enemies grow closer than ever before to learning the secret of its dark origins.”
Some additional info: Francis Ford Coppola’s American Zoetrope, who produced the first two films, will co-produce the film along with Kirk Shaw and Surai Gohill’s Odyssey Media, and Stan Spry’s The Cartel. Coppola, Shaw and Spry will serve as producers on Jeepers Creepers 3, and Myriad’s Kirk D’Amico will executive produce.
The film is slated to go into production in Vancouver.
The first two films in the franchise, Jeepers Creepers and Jeepers Creepers II, were both global box office hits, grossing over $120 million combined worldwide. The first two films were also hugely popular with genre fans and critics, and horror fans have long clamored for a new installment of The Creeper’s misdeeds.
It’s time has come…
