Recently we sat down for an interview with Victor Salva regarding his entry in the upcoming anthology book Dark Delicacies III: Haunted, but we couldn’t let him go without getting you guys the official word on what’s happening with the long awaited Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral.
“The financing is just coming together, so perhaps we will be in preproduction shortly,” Salva tells Dread exclusively. “We have been saying this for a year now, but that’s really about all I can with any certainty.”
“Breck will of course don his wings once again as our favorite flying man-eater, though we have decided, after much fan feedback, to give him his truck back for the new film. Gina Phillips will be back in Jeepers Threepers (as we like to call it) playing Trisha Jenner, 23 years later, a successful business woman who has her own teenage son, Darry, named after her long lost brother.”
“We have decided that the third film should, like one and two, be different from each other in look and locale,” Salva contines. “After all, the highway in question “runs the length of the state. So you may be missing your Spanish moss again and much of the story takes place in the desert part of our ficticious Jeepers state that includes Poho, Pertwilla, and Kissell County.”
“I also have a couple of scripts that I have recently finished that I am out shopping. In this biz, you have to keep four or five balls in the air at a time, knowing that most, or even none of them, might ever see the light of a movie screen. But I have a JAWS-like thriller I am excited about (no sharks in my tale but the tone is the same), a ghost story about Alcatraz, and if Jeepers Threepers hits big enough when it finally comes to theaters, even a series based on the Creeper.”
Look for more on Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral and the rest soon!
