News reports have been circulating the last couple of days about the now finished Jeepers Creepers 3, its storyline and its star Gina Philips (remember her from the first film?). We’re not sure who to trust, but we’re going to bring you everything we’ve learned.
The film has now wrapped production. Gina Philips IS in the film, but she only has a minor role and will, therefore, not have the leading role that we originally expected. Boo!
Furthermore, actress Marieh Delfino (from Jeepers Creepers 2) took to Twitter and replied to a fan who said they were “Sad to see you’re not in the film” and she replied with: “It’s a prequel to JC2 so it doesn’t make sense for my character to be in it timeline wise. But the film will be just as great. :)”
So it’s a prequel that takes place between the first and second films. This worries us, because it suggests the film is going to raise more questions than it does answers and that’s going to be frustrating. I was hoping JC3 would work as a neat little bow, putting an end to the trilogy, so we can all move on with our lives. Alas, this does not seem to be the case.
Finally, JC3 will not follow the Cathedral storyline that emerged a few years ago, which again, makes sense considering it’s going to now be a sequel of sorts. That’s all we know. Can we please have a trailer now?
Jeepers Creepers 3 is written and directed by Victor Salva and stars Gina Philips, Meg Foster, Brandon Stacy, Stan Shaw and Jonathan Breck returning as the infamous Creeper.
