The long-gestating JEEPERS CREEPERS 3 is finally filming in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and director Victor Salva (PEACEFUL WARRIOR, POWDER) is pulling out all the stops for his third, and possibly last, outing with the Creeper!
Story details have been conflicting over the years, with one rumored plot following Trish Jenner (Gina Phillips) from the original film as she teams up with Jack Taggert Sr. (Ray Wise), whose youngest son was killed by the Creeper (Jonathan Breck) in the 2nd film, to protect her own son from the creature. Another supposed plot had former sergeant turned police chief Davis Tubbs (Brandon Smith) encountering the Creeper after a near-fatal run in at the climax of the first film.
While we still are unsure of the exact plot, it has been confirmed the Philips and Smith will be reprising their roles in this film! They are joined by genre vets Adrienne Barbeau (THE FOG, SWAMP THING) & Stan Shaw (8MM, THE MONSTER SQUAD) as well as a crop of fresh, new faces including Chester Rushing (MY FATHER DIE, “STRANGER THINGS”), Ryan Moore (PITCHFORK), Patrick Thomas Cragin (“HOW TO BE A VAMPIRE”), Gabrielle Haugh (THE INSTITUTE, MOTHER MAY I SLEEP WITH DANGER?), Justin Hall (DJANGO UNCHAINED) & Brandon Stacy (THE BIG SHORT, TERMINATOR GENISYS). Additionally, the supporting cast consists of Michael Papajohn (JURASSIC WORLD, DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES), Megan Elizabeth Wright (“HOW TO ROCK”), Jason Bayle (THE BIG SHORT, TRUMBO), Cade Burk (THE NEW WEST), Joyce Giraud (“HOUSE OF PAYNE”), Jordan Salloum (GET HARD, OLDBOY), Don Yesso (22 JUMP STREET, “TRUE DETECTIVE”), David Davis, Casey Hendershot (THE LAST WITCH HUNTER, ZOMBIELAND), Thomas Francis Murphy (12 YEARS A SLAVE, SELF/LESS), and Carrie Lazar (THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, BAD MOMS). Still no word on if Justin Long will be back as Derry Jenner or not.
