Salva Talks Jeepers Creepers 3

Goon

Jeepers Creepers 3 was for quite some time just a rumor that was circulating online. But in actuallity it was at one point VERY close to getting the deal in the bag. But it took another couple months and finally it was confirmed a couple months ago.

Today Fangoria caught up with director Victor Salva, "It’s tentatively titled JEEPERS CREEPERS 3: THE CREEPER WALKS AMONG US. It includes a prologue in the Old West and might bring back several characters from the first two films 20 years later. The script and story will be big on scares and give us plenty more of the traditional Creeper creepiness, with a few more bits thrown in about what it might be and where it came from.”

Of course when it comes to sequels it is always the thought that it might possibly go straight to DVD. Fangoria quizzed Salva about this as well, "MGM initially suggested that we go direct to video with the third in the trilogy, but we hope that the exciting entity that the new MGM is becoming realizes that both JEEPERS CREEPERS films set [then-] records for their Labor Day weekend box-office openings, before each went on to make over $100 million apiece on DVD. I believe a theatrical release is critical to this kind of success on video. I don’t think you can have one without the other, and it would be a shame not to be able to see what I have planned for JEEPERS III up on the big screen.”
