Francis Ford Coppola is bringing Jeepers Creepers back for a third installment

Even though it’s been 12 years since the horror franchise’s last installment, there will be a new Jeepers Creepers movie after all. Entitled simply Jeepers Creepers 3, the film — which tells the tale of ‘the Creeper’ which hunts for human body parts and organs for 23 days every 23rd spring — will begin production next year. Myriad Pictures, which financed Jeepers 2, will back the third film alongside Francis Ford Coppola’s American Zoetrope studios.

Victor Salva, who wrote the first two films, returns to write and direct Jeepers Creepers 3. The stars of the first two films — Brandon Smith (who played Sergeant Davis Tubbs) and Jonathan Breck (who played the Creeper) — will also return for the third film.

“Writing and directing a new Jeepers film, the first in over a decade, is incredibly exciting for me and I believe for Jeepers fans all over the world that have been asking for more,” Salva said in a statement. “What will go before cameras as Jeepers Creepers 3 is a new and terrifying chapter from the Jeepers universe. We are bringing back the Creeper’s truck, and will be addressing the big questions about The Creeper: what it is, where it came from and why it does what it does.”

It sounds like this will be the last in the series, with Sergeant Tubbs forming a task force to try to destroy the finally destroy the devious Creeper. In the process, though, expect lots of blood and gore as they both delve into the Creeper’s ancient history and fight the mysterious monster.

While the first two Jeepers Creepers did reasonably well, raking in a combined $120 million at the box office, the third film had been in theatrical limbo for several years. The announcement confirming the film will be made after all must give relief to the series’ fanbase who heard whispers of a third film (and, at one point, maybe even a fourth) as early as 2008. The film tentatively has a late 2016 or early 2017 release date.
