Jeepers creepers, when are we going to get a “Jeepers Creepers 3” already? According to actor Ray Wise (via Bloody-Disgusting), that might be very soon if all goes as plan. According to Wise, the only thing keeping Victor Salva’s sequel from moving forward is the financing, which apparently have not been taken care of yet, even though Salva has finished the script, and Wise believes it could get done in a couple of months. Wise also confirms that the third part would take place right where the second one ended, with Wise’s character in the barn with the Creeper hung on his wall, getting ready to wake up and start killing all over again.
“Jeepers Creepers” is probably one of the better horror franchises out there that you’ve never heard of, despite the fact that both previous installments have opened in theaters. But for some reason it’s never gained the following of franchises like “Friday the 13th” or its ilk.
Besides the return of Wise, Salva himself has confirmed that Gina Phillips, the star of the first, will also come back to battle the Creeper.
