Jeepers Creepers 3 (2017, D: Salva)

Has it been 23 years already? Well, no, but it has been more than a decade, but fans of the low-budget horror franchise Jeepers Creepers have something to celebrate today, as it as been announced that the saga will get a concluding chapter. Yes, that means exactly what you think it means, Jeepers Creepers 3 is happening.

According to Variety, Myriad Pictures announced that they will finance the long-in-the-works Jeepers Creepers 3, as well as tackle the international sales for the film. Francis Ford Coppola, and his American Zoetrope studios, which backed the first two installments in the hit horror franchise, will be back in play, as will a number of returning players who have had a hand in guiding the films.

Victor Salva, who both wrote and directed the 2001 original, as well as the 2003 follow up, not to mention other films like Powder, will be back in the same capacity for Jeepers Creepers 3. Brandon Smith, who played Sergeant Davis Tubbs in the first film, will show up in the same part, while it has also been confirmed that Jonathan Breck is set to reprise his role as the villainous Creeper. Salva promises fans a "terrifying new chapter."

For those of you who unfamiliar with these films, they revolve around a mysterious, legendary creature, the Creeper, who resides in the Midwest and emerges in the spring every 23 years to hunt for 23 days, harvesting human organs, which it then adds to itself. This time around, the skeptical Sergeant Tubbs joins a task force that aims to take out this ancient evil once and for all. The Creeper, however, fights back, protecting himself and his secret origins, in what is sure to be a gore-soaked clash.

Itís the origins part that has fans the most interested. Not only do Salva and company plan to deliver another horrifying chapter, they want to get into the history of the ancient monster. They plan to examine where it came from, why it does what it does, and other mysteries inherent in the creature. Whatever it is, Iím sure itís all kinds of dark and messed up, which only sweetens the deal.

While not huge hits, the two Jeepers Creepers movies were made for relatively little capital and earned a combined $120 million worldwide, making them rather profitable overall. Never huge critical darlings, they have their fans, and while itís been talked about for a while, itís a bit surprising that itís taken more than a decade for this to happen. Fans want it, and it will likely make money; seems like a win-win.

As of now, itís starting to look like the long gestating Jeepers Creepers 3 could begin filming as early as next year in Vancouver, British Columbia, and probably hit sometime later that year or in early 2017.

Curious about the horror creature. Also curious if this will actually hit the theaters or be VOD.

I remember reading (years ago) that Gina Philips had agreed to return for part III. Hope that's still in the cards.

Will we get three times the amount of shirtless young adolescents?

I dig this series. Salva is a fucking creep, but he makes interesting films.

I love both films and have been eagerly anticipating this one for years. Even though Salva is a wretched human being, the fact that Francis Coppola has backed him all the way and even visited him while he was incarcerated really reminds me of Johnny Cash and all the prison gigs he did. I dunno, I respect Coppola for giving the guy a second chance at life. Anyways stoked for this!

I don't know why, but I can accept Gary Glitter as a pedophile and don't shy away from viewing him as an utterly vile human being. But I can't do the same for Townshend. Of course Glitter actually raped children and Townshend only bought child porn, but I almost feel bad for the guy in a way. He's got some dark issues that need to be dealt with by professionals, but the whole fucking world didn't need to know it. Also I absolutely love The Who. So that probably plays into it too.

I anticipate this to be nothing but 90 minutes of shirtless high school guys running around as their girlfriends get killed off.

Yup! Around the time Clownhouse (1989) was released if I'm not mistaken.

I don't know where you guys get your facts from, but Pete Townshend was cleared of the charges. The police even apologized to him for the raid. All he did was sign up for an account on a website and the police got all Gestapo-like and raided his home just on that alone.

Pete Townshend Cleared Of All Charges

Townshend Breaks Silence About Arrest

The thing people should take away from this is the abuse of power by the police, but instead online idiots miss that entirely (or ignore it if they're online assholes) and falsely call Townshend a pedophile to this day.


EDIT: More on the colossal British police fuck-up called "Operation Ore" in which Pete Townshend wasn't the only innocent person falsely accused:

Agreed...I didn't love the second JC flick, but it was decent enough. I've been waiting for a third movie for quite a while. Hopefully this will be the origin movie that people have been hoping for.

Kudos to Coppola for his actions.

I really enjoyed the first one even though I think it really fell apart near the end. Part two was completely forgettable. I'd be down for a third even though an origin story isn't exactly all that enticing. IMO, many horror movies are best when things like origins are left vague or to the viewer's imaginations. I don't need to see the Creeper's childhood or awkward teen years.

Whatever, I'll watch it regardless.
