Victor Salva checked in with the Fango fiends with new info on Jeepers Creepers III: Cathedral, dropping the new subtitle as one of many updates.
First and foremost, the script is done and the sequel is preparing to enter preproduction. The story will have a prologue set in the Old West that details how the Creeper became a terrifying part of Native American folklore and then jumps ahead to the ending of Jeepers Creepers II on the eve of a brand new 23rd spring.
“I will say,” Salva told the mag, “that one aspect of the third film features Trish Jenner [again played by 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.”
Jonathan Breck will be back under the makeup as the titular beast again, and of course Ray Wise will reprise his role from the second film. Salva promises that JC 3 “brings back all the classic ideas of the first film, but brings them horrifyingly full circle. It also revisits characters from both, lets us learn more about what the Creeper is and, by popular demand, reintroduces the infamous Creeper truck.”
Can I get a hell yeah?
