Though we last heard about another Jeepers Creepers movie a few months ago (““>Jeepers 3 Confirmed” – November 2007), all has been quiet about it thanks to the Writer’s Strike. Now that it’s behind us, details are emerging on Jeepers Creepers 3 in a big way.
Ray Wise told the Chicago Weekend of Horrors crowd that he’ll be returning to the franchise, reprising his role as Jack Taggart from Jeepers Creepers 2. Wise said his character has a big role in it, which was confirmed by Jonathan Breck back at the Austin Fango con.
Writer/director Victor Salva provided Fangoria with even more details; ”It’s tentatively titled Jeepers Creepers 3: The Creeper Walks Among Us.” he revealed to the mag, ”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.”
Could be pretty cool, especially if they’re going to back to the Creeper as an actual scary figure. How they’ll deal with Ray Wise should be interesting, as when we last saw him he was an elderly man overseeing the Creeper’s husk 13 years in the future … I’m sure we’ll hear more soon!
