The road to Jeepers Creepers 3 has been a long and confusing one. Thankfully, though, with the passage of time comes a bit more clarity and even some new eye candy. Read on for the skinny!
So here’s what we know so far… Gina Philips (star of the original film) returns as Trisha Jenner, but she’s not the focus of this new film, which takes place in between Parts 1 and 2. “I am in it in order to launch what happens next,” she told Diabolique Magazine. “Victor has written what happens from the second after the conclusion of Jeepers Creepers 3. I think that’s all I’m allowed to say about it but he wrote in such detail and he had a lot of flashbacks to what happened over the years that it made it very easy for me. I got to see what will eventually happen to the character, and he put enough flashbacks in there that I got to see what happened to her over the last 15 years. Let’s just say there’s more to come.” Okay, so that pretty much covers Philips’ plans to take center stage in Part 4.
But where does that all leave Part 3 story-wise? According to Bloody Disgusting, Jeepers Creepers 3 follows a group of hunters (led by Meg Foster) who are completely aware of the Creeper’s mythology and looking to stop the creature before it ends its eatin’ spree. They go on to report that Philips provides some voiceover work and appears towards the end of the film.
So remember this old leaked synopsis?
Trish Jenner is now a mother of a teenage son named Darry, named after the brother she lost 23 years ago. Trish has a recurring nightmare where her son suffers the same fate as her brother did, killed by the Creeper. Determined to prevent this from happening, Trish, who is now a rich and powerful woman, sets out on a final quest with Jack Taggart Sr. and Jr. to end the Creeper’s reign of terror once and for all. The Creeper fights back in gory glory as its enemies grow closer than ever before to learning the secret of its dark origins.
Maybe it is for Part 4, which was supposed to be filmed directly after Part 3. Who knows?!? Things are still leaning toward the confusing side of the fence. It should also be noted that Twitter user Grysha has leaked this set of imagery from the third film.
