Confirmed: Salva Writing & Directing Jeepers Creepers 3
November 8, 2007

The Creeper is ready to take flight again.

Victor Salva, we have learned via a number of highly reliable sources, is officially on board to write and direct Jeepers Creepers 3, the latest installment in MGM's monstrous franchise that he created in 2001 and carried through with a sequel subsequently released in 2003. Both films introduced audiences to The Creeper, an ancient creature that comes out of hibernation for 23 days to feed.

Early rumblings on the web pegged Salva solely as a writer with the potential to direct, however, we have learned he is committed to overseeing the third chapter (shall we call it Jeepers Threepers?) himself. Whether it will fly straight-to-DVD or into theaters remains to be seen. Our contacts add that "Jeepers 3" may pave the way for a television series Salva is discussing with MGM and American Zoetrope (both mainstays in the franchise to date).

The initial Jeepers Creepers opened at $13 million, breaking Labor Day weekend box office records at the time. Its follow-up was met with a $15 million bow two years later during a similar holiday release period. Together, the films have pulled in a little over a $100 million, not counting DVD sales.

Shooting will begin on the threequel either before he begins production on or after he completes Entity, not to be confused with the Barbara Hershey-starring ghost story of the same name. Salva has stated on several occasions that Entity is the closest he will ever get to a sequel to his 1995 film Powder - he wrote it shortly after Powder as part of three films he refers to as his "alien trilogy."

I think it's time for another one it's been time years ago. I heard this rumor a long time ago and still it hasn't come out. Can't wait to see it.

I'm definately happy to hear Salva is writing and directing a third installment. Jeepers Creepers was a great horror movie, with good characterization and genuine scares. The sequel left a little to be desired, with a cast a little too young, a little too green, and not nearly fleshed out enough to really be engaging..but it did a good job of helping to continue the story of the Creeper. I think the best bet for a sequel is to get back to the basics of the original, with a smaller cast of characters or victims lol..who can really help carry the story.

******* ****ing peice of **** **** ****kkkkkk!

If Salva can make this movie as good as the first two were, count me in. I just hope it is a little more twisted. I agree, it should have a theatrical release.

Hopefully Salva can keep it in his pants for this film and not shoot 45 minutes of teenage boys tanning on the roof of a bus like he did for 2. I think Salva wishes he was the Creeper in part 2, snatching teenage boys from the ground and taking them to his lair.

Wow, thank Christ, the third installment of Jeepers Creepers. Something to do the next time I'm dropping a deuce. I'M A MAJOR FAN OF YELLING AND MISPELLING AND ANKLING MY FRIENDS, JUST LIKE CIARLE BROWNE. (Ankling is like fisting!) Sarah, you make some valid points and seem to be the only person making any sense in here. Hey blackaciddevil, you were counted out long before you said count me in. Come on ass clowns, let's get a dialogue going here.

Can hardly wait for Jeepers Creepers 3 to hit the movie theatres. Anyone have any idea when that will be?

I think the first two movie were pretty good, especially the first half of Jeepers 1. I liked the scene where The Creeper took k-wezzy's penis, but it was so small that the Creeper used it as a clit and became a female Creeper.

Posted by: themayorshakeyville on April 4, 2008 at 05:46:10

I thought the first half of 1 was good until it became a bit stupid (and how annoying was the song) but the second was just terrible. A bunch of teenagers on a bus with javlins and it takes them a good 45 minutes to think...hang on we've got big pointy sticks...lets stab it....they all deserved to die!

Posted by: bt on April 20, 2008 at 11:00:25

are they makin 3rd one

Posted by: Mike on May 7, 2008 at 02:25:51

Hm... Speaking of female Creepers, I always kinda wondered what it would be like if a female Creeper entered the movies. Then they'd have two to deal with. Wouldn't that suck >.>

But then again, that'd be kinda dumb. Eh...

Anyways, glad to hear they're makin' a third. That's awesome, wheater it be direct-to-DVD or theater first. I wonder if this one will be like a prequel and give us a little background or will it be another sequel...

Either way, I can't wait :D

I've been waiting years for this movie. Glad to hear that both Jonathan Breck and Victor Salva will again be working together on the next installment.

Posted by: Andrew on May 12, 2008 at 23:21:04

Eh, I'll pass. Ever since I found out Salva was a pervert these movies play like a ****sexual pedophile's wet dream. Go ahead and watch if that sort of thing appeals to you.

Posted by: Andrew on May 12, 2008 at 23:26:25

H-o m-o sexual. Stupid censors.

Posted by: christina oshea on May 18, 2008 at 20:27:29

when will this movie be released? please let me know.

Posted by: FireMadeFlesh on May 19, 2008 at 03:46:28

Some of you are so ****phobic. Why the hell are you paying so close attention to the dudes sun tanning on the bus in the first place? --And for the record, balloon-breasted chicks are what sells crapfest movies like Freddy vs. Jason & Child's Play 4. Salva makes ART & one hell of a good story! I loved the first two movies; particularly Jeepers Creepers 2! (all those that grew up in those rural country areas know how haunting those barely-lit highways can be) The scene after the truck blows up, the black kid is laying in the field, & the Creeper starts leaping through the air to get at him...CLASSIC! I've been waiting years for part 3! I'm glad there's finally some steam behind it & I'm definitely glad Salva is still at the helm!

im glad to hear its been made , but want i aint a fan of is a straight to dvd film!!! i think the audience should decide in theatres wether its a hit, same with lost boys 2!!!!!!

Posted by: Be right on May 19, 2008 at 12:02:17

I agree with one commenter that for the first haldf of Jeepers 1, was one of the best horror flicks ever! However, once I saw that the Creeper was a winged beast it became dumb. It felt a little like Chaninsaw Massacre before I saw the creature. Too bad, b/c I was on the edge of my seat before that.

Posted by: HCD on July 2, 2008 at 12:52:01

I personally spoke with Jeepers Creepers actor Brandon Smith and he said that he has been ontracted to due the third installment and is returning as Srgt. Tubbs. Also it was said that Jezzell played by Patricia Belcher will be returning as well
