It's been 12 years since the last Jeepers Creepers film and fans have been anxiously awaiting a third installment ever since, even voting it as the most wanted movie in the UHM database. After years of nothing but rumors and speculation we finally have some concrete news, as reports have revealed that the anticipated sequel is finally moving forward!

Apparently its taken the project so long because they couldn't find proper financing, but now its being backed by several studios, specifically Myriad Pictures. Victor Salva returns to write and direct, with Jonathan Breck back as The Creeper and Brandon Smith as "Sergeant Davis Tubbs" from the first movie.

Jeepers Creepers 3 will show events on the last day of the Creeper’s twenty-three day feeding frenzy, as the skeptical Sergent Tubbs teams up with a task force hellbent on destroying the Creeper for good. The Creeper fights back in gory glory as its enemies grow closer than ever before to learning the secret of its dark origins.

The premise has changed quite a bit since it was last reported, where it was subtitled Cathedral and was going to be set 23 years after the last one and focus on Gina Phillips character who is now a mother of a teenage son and decides to put an end to The Creeper once and for all. Ray Wise was going to return as "Jack Taggart Sr." while Justin Long would have a cameo in a flashback or dream sequence. It's currently not known if any of the said names will return.

Meanwhile, Victor Salva had this to say about the project:

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. 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. More exciting though, this will easily be the most frightening rollercoaster ride of a Jeepers film that has been made to date.

The film is expected to begin shooting sometime in early 2016 in Vancouver, Canada. You can read more about the movie here.
