With Jeepers Creepers 3 in post production, details are starting to emerge. It seems that not only does it pick up after the events in part 2, it is filled with flash backs. Word is, writer-director Victor Salva had completely rewrote the script after it was announced to lower the budget for the movie that has had so much trouble getting off the ground.
In an interview with Diabolique Magazine, star of both the original film and Jeepers Creepers 3, Gina Phillips talked about the flashbacks and her character, Trish.
…the plan is for this stuff to go to the screen in the next Jeepers Creepers movie,” she said. Victor has written what happens from the second after the conclusion of Jeepers Creepers 3,” she continued. “I think that’s all I’m allowed to say about it but he wrote in such detail and he had a lot of flashbacks to what happened over the years that it made it very easy for me. I got to see what will eventually happen to the character and he put enough flashbacks in there that I got to see what happened to her over the last 15 years.” She went on “…a lot has changed for Trish over the years. She’s a mother; she’s been through a lot.”
In the third film Trish is worried that her teenage son will face the same fate that her brother Darry (Justin Long) did . It’s time for the Creeper to come out and feed.
Trish Jenner 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. 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.”
During the interview she also revealed that Jeepers Creepers 3 will not be the final film for the franchise. That’s right, there will be a Jeepers Creepers 4.
Let’s just say, there is more to come.”
The cast for part 3 also includes Jonathan Breck returns as the Creeper, Meg Foster (They Live), Chester Rushing (Stranger Things), Brandon Smith (From Dusk Till Dawn), Ryan Moore (Pitchfork), Patrick Thomas Cragin (How to Be a Vampire), Gabrielle Haugh (Mother, May I Sleep With Danger?), and Justin Hall (Django Unchained).
