Jeepers Creepers 3 Coming to Theaters?Meh
Fangoria had a change to get the good on Jeepers Creepers 3. Writer and Director Victor Salva shared the title of the film as well as talked about the rumors of it releasing directly to DVD.
"It's tentatively titled 'Jeepers Creeper 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."
"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 3' up on the big screen."
I am a huge fan of Jeepers Creepers and am very excited to see where a 3rd installment can take the franchsie. Whether it goes right to DVD or Theaters I frankly could care less. Just gimme my Jeepers! Read more on Fangoria
