FANGORIA reports that JEEPERS CREEPERS III: CATHEDRAL is about to head into pre-production with writer/director/series creator Victor Salva once again at the helm! The article gives away plenty of great tid-bits about what we can expect from the new sequel! For starters, Salva tells FANGO that the new film "does include a prologue in the Old West where we see how the Creeper became a frightening part of cowboy and Native American folklore." After a brief stop in the past, the script picks up exactly where JEEPERS II left off, with a new 23rd spring only a day away.
It appears that the new film will feature returning cast members from both JEEPERS CREEPERS films! Salva revealed, "I will say 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."
Salva continues, "The other elements of the story, which easily make JEEPERS CREEPERS III the biggest film of the three, include some of the scariest and most intense Creeper stuff we have ever attempted."
One thing the director is keeping a lid on is the true meaning behind the sequel’s subtitle "CATHEDRAL", which he claims "is a large part of the film created especially for all our loyal JEEPERS CREEPERS fans."
