While many fans are looking forward to the next installment of the ‘Jeepers Creepers’ franchise, some can’t overlook writer-director Victor Salva’s past (which is understandable). Some have even signed the petition to boycott the film and block it from opening in theaters. ‘Jeepers Creepers 3’ has already run into trouble once. Now, the film has lost one of its headlining stars.
Scream Queen Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog, Carnivâle, Creepshow, The Thing) took to Facebook to make it clear that she won’t be appearing in the film after all. She was set to play the role of “Gaylen Brandon”, a women hell bent on revenge for the death of her son. It is unclear why she won’t be taking part in the ‘Jeepers Creepers 3’. The movie is listed on her IMDb page, so it leads us to believe that she has chosen to back of the film for some unknown reason. We can’t help but assume it has something to do with Salva’s controversial history.
In the movie, Trish Jenner (Gina Philips), now the mother of a teenage son, 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.
Barbeau would have co-starred alongside Gina Phillips, Ray Wise, Stan Shaw, Chester Rushing , Ryan Moore (Pitchfork), Brandon Smith, Justin Hall, Gabrille Haugh, Megan Elizabeth Wright and Jonathan Breck.
Let's be honest, sometimes we as horror fans crave something a little wild, a little cheesy. Well, if that's what you...
