After a long gestation, casting issues and problems due to writer-director Victor Salva’s past, Jeepers Creepers 3 began filming in Baton Rouge, Louisiana back in February. We can report that the film is one step closer to release. It has now wrapped filming and has entered post-production.
In the film, Trish Jenner (Gina Philips) is now a mother of a teenage son named Darry, named after the brother she lost 23 years ago. Trish has a recurring nightmare where her son suffers the same fate as her brother did, killed by the Creeper. Determined to prevent this from happening, Trish, who is now a rich and powerful woman, sets out on a final quest with Jack Taggart Sr. (Ray Wise) and Jr. to end the Creeper’s reign of terror once and for all. The Creeper fights back in gory glory as its enemies grow closer than ever before to learning the secret of its dark origins.
Stan Shaw (The Monster Squad) will co-star as ‘Sheriff Tashtego’. Chester Rushing (Stranger Things), Ryan Moore (Pitchfork), Brandon Smith (From Dusk Till Dawn), Justin Hall (Django Unchained), and Gabrille Haugh (Mother, May I Sleep With Danger) will co-star along with Megan Elizabeth Wright. Jonathan Breck will be back as the ‘Creeper’.
Many horror films are refusing to see the sequel do to Salva’s status as a convicted poedophile. Some have even signed a petition to block the movie from being shown in theaters. Will his past stop you from watching it? If you haven’t heard about this before, you can find out more here.
No release date has been announced at this time. As soon as it is, we will let you know.
