Exclusive: Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral Update

Exclusive: Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral UpdateRecently 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!

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Yes, a Western prequel was in the talks at one point but that was many years ago and got scrapped. I’m still a bit confused that Salva does want to set this film in what has to be approximately the year 2025. I guess if they set it far enough away from any big cities you wouldn’t have to get too science fictiony with the technology and fashion. People do drive 20 year old cars and wear “retro” clothing, but certainly not everbody… Also Gina Phillips playing 23 years older should be interesting. Are they gonna string her out on crack (the Winehouse Method) or will they age her with make up and/or CGI?

    I thought it was supposed to be a western themed movie for the 3rd entry in this series… Maybe my brain is playing games on me and I am mixing up series…

  • Masked Slasher

    Cool. I really dig the first movie, but the second was a waste of time.
