Jeepers Creepers 3 may finally be in pre-production again

Ever since the release of JEEPERS CREEPERS 2 way back in 2003 it has only seemed like a matter of time before we'd see a JEEPERS CREEPERS 3, and it's a surprise that so much time has passed between sequels, especially since a script by franchise creator Victor Salva has just been waiting for a greenlight for several years. The third film was finally gearing up to shoot in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada last year when Salva's past, namely a 1988 conviction for statuatory rape, caught up with him and derailed the production, as the Union of British Columbia Performers had a casting notice removed from Breakdown Services, negating any talent submissions that had been made by agents.

According to Bloody-Disgusting, JEEPERS CREEPERS 3 is now back on, having left Vancouver and moved its offices to Louisiana.

While Salva's past does cast an uncomfortable shadow over the films, I did enjoy JEEPERS CREEPERS and, to a lesser degree, part 2. I thought The Creeper himself, as played by Jonathan Breck, was a great monster and had a chance to be a new horror icon, even if the "he only comes around every 23 years" rule does hold him back a bit. I'm all for seeing The Creeper in more films.

Breck is expected to play The Creeper again in part 3, with fellow returning actors Gina Philips and Brandon Smith joining him in the cast.

JEEPERS CREEPERS 3 will show events on the last day of the Creeper’s twenty-three day feeding frenzy, as the skeptical Sergeant 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.

If JEEPERS CREEPERS 3 is indeed currently in pre-production in Louisiana, we can probably expect to hear a lot more about the project in the coming months.

"conviction for statutory rape"

Statutory rape? Dude, he filmed himself molesting a 12 year old boy and police found child pornography in his home.

They should just reboot it already, no need for this to be part 3

So much time has passed, the creature isn't that iconic (anymore) and the second movie was just garbage. They are going to have to give 20-30 minutes of backstory anyways (all the stupid rules of the creature like the 23 year hibernation could be changed) and make it more of a less convoluted thriller. My idea has always been a what if scenario. Know how Bruce Wayne fell into the cave near his parents mansion? Well, not Bruce Wayne but some other kids (a group similar to the Goonies) falls into

Well, not Bruce Wayne but some other kids (a group similar to the Goonies) falls into an elaborate cave system only to find its the lair of the Creeper. I know Hollywood hates killing kids in horror movies but it would be amazing to see kids vs the creeper (throw in some older 20 somethings as well) and its more or less The Descent, with Kids, the creeper and a crazy R rating.

Your idea sounds awesome! I'd rather see that than what they likely are going with for the story.
