Director Victor Salva has confirmed he is close to finally moving forward and completing his creature-feature trilogy centring on the centuries-old winged monster known as ‘The Creeper’. In fact, while official production is yet to get underway on JEEPERS CREEPERS 3, the infamous filmmaker has already shot a scene earlier last month for his blood-curdling closing sequel, which will see the return of Jonathan Breck’s hideously dormant demon.
We’re not quite sure why it’s taken so long, as Slava has indicated in the past he’s had the script completed for sometime. Especially when you consider the franchise has a huge following and together grossed more than $120 million worldwide. Not bad for a low-budget series in which both films were a highlight when horror was in decline. It makes you wonder if Salva’s controversial past still goes against him if he’s been unable to find finance until now?
So, it appears The Creeper will be feasting on flesh in the near future. Are you looking forward to JEEPERS CREEPERS 3? As ever, let us know!
