'Jeepers Creepers III: Cathedral' Gets Started

Director Victor Salva talks about the latest developments.
Movie Picture
It seems we're all in store for a new dose of the Creeper in the near future. Fangoria recently talked to writer/director Victor Salva about the upcoming Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral and confirmed the new title of the film as well.

"The script, now titled Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral, is about to enter preproduction at MGM and does include a prologue in the Old West where we see how the Creeper became a frightening part of cowboy and Native American folklore," Salva said.

"I will say," Salva added, "that one aspect of the third film features Trish Jenner (Gina Philips from the original film), who, 23 years later, has a teenage son of her own, named Darry after her long lost brother. Trish is having a terrible recurring dream where her son meets the same terrible fate as her brother. Now a rich and powerful woman, Trish is determined to stop the Creeper once and for all."

While Salva wouldn't reveal anything about the film's title, he said that, "it is a large part of the film created especially for all our loyal Jeepers Creepers fans. The new Jeepers-Jeepers Threepers as we affectionately refer to it around here-brings back all the classic ideas of the first film, but brings them horrifyingly full circle. It also revisits characters from both films [Ray Wise from II returns, as does Creeper actor Jonathan Breck], lets us learn more about what the Creeper is and, by popular demand, reintroduces the infamous Creeper truck."

It is unclear when the film will start production or if a release date has been set yet. We'll be sure to update you on this new film as more information arises.

Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral is in development .

    Why does everyone hate the 2nd movie? Obviously the football team in it are idiots, regardless. But what I mean is everyone hates that he flies and that they saw HIM up close. Umm...he is bad ass looking when they do show him. He is creepy as f*ck. Licking the bus window...I mean come on that's pretty creepy lol. The fact that he can fly makes him even freakier cause he could pop out of nowhere. To me, he's a demon. The actual creature/demon is the only thing I care about. It could have the dumbest plot in the world and I wouldn't care, just so I can see more of IT and maybe this time they will actually explain what the f*ck it is lol. I'm dying to know.

    Sounds like they're trying to make up for part 2. I took Jeepers Creepers part 2 more has comedy.

    i remember back when the 2nd movie was released i read some review and the guy reckon'd that the creeper was a good enough character to make a franchise with. in the same vain as Freddy, Jason, Mike Myers etc....
    i have a feeling he was right, and that if this movie does ok, we will prob be seeing more.

    I agree the Creeper should me more scary but the films are fine the way they are.

    Slim, this is a public forum, and therefore, people are allowed to express their opinions on it, for or against. Some opposing comments can be interesting, and nowhere does it say the articles are for fans only. However, I liked the first 2 films, but The Creeper should be more scary. The most tense horror films are the ones where the sightings of the creature(s) is kept to a minimum. Like with an American Werewolf in London, and especially Alien. Alien let you have a good but brief glimpse at the terrifying form of the creature, then lets your mind do the rest of the work for a while. JC should've followed this path. But a 3rd film is good news.

    Hell Yeah, been waiting for a 3rd sequel for ages. I thought the 2nd installment was set 23yrs after the original?

    I think this continues from Jeepers Creepers, excluding Jeepers Creepers 2.

    i tho the first one was ok.the begigning freak me out when he saw the kids driving down and sjut stare at them creppy scene.. second seen bits of it never got into it... i'll see this one when it comes out for dvd...

    The thing i want to know if the begining of the movie is going to lead off from the end of the 2nd one, because the Creeper was strapped to the wall, and it was 23yrs later, so it surly would of woken up. I hope we see the big Ax he has. But it should have a different style, and it should be bigger.

    The first 30min in the first Jeepers Creepers was pretty damn good...until you actually see this "thing" then it went all done hill from there.

    Now for those who say Jeepers Creepers is the best, I would sit down and rethink about that...

  27. Phatlightning

    wow, do you think they waited long enough? Maybe the wait was for the best, but I dont think they should do this on account of they weren't that good of movies.

    Don't know really?
    Jeepers was, at one point coined as trying to start a new franchise and compared itself to Freddy/Jason.
    Those movies were excellent in their time (I grew up on them and loved them, made me suffer amnesia scared out of my mind but cool!!).

    Reserve judgement on anything nowadays because in comparison they have a lot of work to do, better effects etc but...

    First Jeepers was ok, second not bad so interested to see what 3rd "Threeper" conjures up. Glad to hear their going down the "history of" route should help understand creeper and make way for 4/5....

    Good luck i say!

    Jeepers Creepers was the best it reminds me of Saw and Jeepers Creepers 2 reminds me of Saw 2 because it has more people. Either way Jeepers Creepers is cool. Justin Long should cameo in the film like he did in JC2. Or his sister finds his skin from the first one
