Jeepers Creepers 3 Movie News Roundup

Herner Klenthur

Jeepers Creepers 3Jeepers Creepers 3 is a movie that fans either love or hate and I fall in the camp that loves it.

Allow me to be clear though I love the movie not the films creator Victor Salva who is mired in controversy over an event in his past. 

For me Victor Salva’s terrifying creation of ‘The Creeper’ is one of the few great modern monsters of our time and the two films are gems within the genre. Since the release of Jeepers Creepers 1 and 2 we have waited patiently for Jeepers Creepers 3 which has been in development hell for literally years.

The plot that appeared online looked to have Trish from the original Jeepers Creepers return 23 years after the incidents that killed her brother. Now 40 and incredibly wealthy she is faced with defending her son from the Creeper teaming up with Jack Taggert and his son to defeat the creeper using every resource she can afford.

In 2011 Victor Salva was convinced that the movie was going to finally see the light of day when he spoke with BD telling them quote;

MGM has had it share of troubles since the first two ‘Jeepers’ films came out of United Artists under the lion’s umbrella, and that complicated getting ‘JC3′ (we call it ‘Jeepers Threepers’) made as well, but…it can be made without MGM“,

MGM doesn’t own the ‘Jeepers’ franchise, Francis Coppola’s Zoetrope owns it. And I think this might actually be the year the film gets made. I hope it is. The third installment has lots of goodies for the ‘Jeepers’ fans, and they have been so loyal – and so patient!

That interview was in 2011 and since then what has happened with the project? A fat lot of thing! Since then however fans have clambered for more. Hordes of Creeper fans have absorbed each and every tidbit we have posted on the film always asking WHEN?

Frankly I am beginning to wonder if Jeepers Creepers 3 wont be a reality so long as Victor Salva writes and directs it. As much as I love his creation the man has a controversial history which inevitably always comes up and might be hampering the third film in the franchise. Rumors circled in the summer of 2011 that the project would finally happen and Victor Salva told The Daily Blam

“It has come close several times to going before cameras, and I hope someone sees the wisdom in shooting this, the third and final Creeper tale, I still can’t tell you what the fate of this third film will be. According to IMBD we are already filming – I guess they started without any of us!”

Apparently the producers were also interested in doing it 3D. He told the Daily Blam;

“3D would absolutely devastate the script – since the added 2 to 3 million in production costs would strip the screenplay down to a point where it would be smaller in scale than the original Jeepers Creepers. And then even that money dried up. I would say the film has been on and off the front burner at least nine times during the last few years.”

Both those updates came in 2011 and since then it has been incredibly quite.

The last news that we got was that the Creeper van had been spotted on the backlots and that it would be released this past summer. Given that the release date has now come and gone it’s a safe bet that Jeepers Creepers 3 is still collecting dust on a shelf somewhere.

So what is the latest on Jeepers Creepers 3? Quite frankly there is no ‘latest’ on the movie. Jeepers Creepers 3 it would seem is dead and buried… for now. Or perhaps we just need to wait a creepy 23 years!

          No one is asking you to buy him dinner or even watch the movie for that matter.

      4. Danny Merrifield November 10, 2013 at 11:04 pm

      6. Amador Rivera November 10, 2013 at 11:16 pm

        Oh, a horror movie with no type of story? Just a collection of monster kills people scenes? No thanks, hope it never comes out.

      7. Adam Ahlbrandt November 10, 2013 at 11:18 pm

        So a guy who rapes a 12 year old boy and video tapes it is ok in your book? Yeah, good to know you don’t care.

        Ugh, why?

        Very few horror slashers become a great icon in the horror community and the Creeper was one of them. I’m 24 and I remember watching these before I was a teenager and that and Halloween started my horror movie obsession. With it taking so long I’m expecting an amped up script and it should be dope as dope could be though.

        MGM had to recall all the DVDs of Clownhouse because the main child Actor (the one who was molested) took MGM to court to stop the DVD release…..and of course the kid won!

        I’ve been waiting for the third installment since 2006. Somebody fucking get on it and no bullshit 3D. I want real story and character development.

      23. Al Lister Crowley November 11, 2013 at 2:27 am

        Loved both films. As for it’s creator, he’s not the first. Errol Flynn, Roman Polanski. Salva may not rank as being among those who our culture heaps praises and awards. But in his personal life, he is not the first, and is in in the company of those whose works we admire, but their personal lives we would just as soon turn a blind eye to, or sweep under a rug.

      24. John W November 11, 2013 at 2:38 am

        A pox on the house of those who insist on 3D.

      25. Andrew Steven Garner November 11, 2013 at 3:19 am

        I really liked the first movie but knowing the director is a child molester is very creepy and weird.

      26. Jawanese Jewelin November 11, 2013 at 10:24 am
