23 years after the events of the original film Trisha Jenner who now has a teenage son named Darry (named after her late brother who was killed by the Creeper) has a recurring nightmare her son will suffer the same fate. So she sets out with Jack Taggart and Jack Taggart Jr. to end The Creeper's reign once and for all.
Recently Victor Salva told Moviehole that the film will bring back characters from the past two films, and they will interact. According to Rotten Tomatoes, Ray Wise will return as the monster-hunting farmer named Taggart; the Creeper, once again, will be embodied by Jonathan Breck. Gina Philips, who played Trish in the first film, will also return. Brandon Smith who portrayed Sgt. David Tubbs in the first installment is also slated to return.
In March 2006 a third film in the Jeepers Creepers series was announced. As of May 12, 2009 the script has been finalized and production has started.
According to Moviehole the third film is in the works, written and directed by Victor Salva. It also states that the film will be a direct-to-video release. Recently Victor Salva told Moviehole that the film may get a theatrical release. First and foremost, the script is done and the sequel is preparing to enter preproduction. "
It's tentatively titled 'Jeepers Creeper 3: The Creeper Walks Among Us'," says Salva, once again wearing his love of Universal's "Creature from the Black Lagoon" trilogy on his sleeve. "It includes a prologue in the Old West and might bring back several characters from the first two films 20 years later. The script and story will be big on scares and give us plenty more of the traditional Creeper creepiness, with a few more bits thrown in about what it might be and where it came from. Salva goes on to address the direct-to-DVD versus theatrical rumors swirling around the sequel. "MGM initially suggested that we go direct to video with the third in the trilogy, but we hope that the exciting entity that the new MGM is becoming realizes that both 'Jeepers Creepers' films set [then-] records for their Labor Day weekend box-office openings, before each went on to make over $100 million apiece on DVD," he tells Fangoria. "I believe a theatrical release is critical to this kind of success on video. I don’t think you can have one without the other, and it would be a shame not to be able to see what I have planned for 'Jeepers 3' up on the big screen. Jonathan Breck will be back under the makeup as the titular beast again, and of course Ray Wise will reprise his role from the second film. Salva promises that JC 3 “brings back all the classic ideas of the first film, but brings them horrifyingly full circle. It also revisits characters from both, lets us learn more about what the Creeper is and, by popular demand, reintroduces the infamous Creeper truck.”
