Jeepers Creepers 4 News: 4th film Still Planned!
Victor Salva wants short series as well?
Last we heard about Jeepers Creepers 4 was from Jonathan Breck who plays the winged monster in the series. Breck gave an interview last year about what Victor Salva has written stating:
“Yeah, if we’re lucky enough to have it happen. I don’t know that there’s a script written yet for Four. I know that we had a script for a long time for Three. You’re probably familiar with the name Cathedral. Cathedral got broken up into a TV series. So, he re-wrote three to be what you’re going to see on-screen on Tuesday night. But he still has Cathedral, which is written out into the first season of a TV show and it’s amazing. So that’s already written and ready to go and there’s a good possibility that a TV will be spawned from this movie. But beyond that he’s already working on the script for Four and that’s really going to get interesting because we must go a whole new direction and deal with a whole new 23 days, right? So, we’re either going to go forward or we’re going to back, or we’re going to go some combination of both.”
I want to focus on the section regarding the potential TV series because a friend of mine met writer and director Victor Salva over the summer and was told that 4 is happening and will start off in the barn we last saw the creeper in back in 2003. Hopefully this means Ray Wise can return and Gina Philips is already set to come back to hunt the creeper one last time as Trish Jenner. Now it seems Victor may be transitioning his focus to bringing the creeper to the small screen.
There is a Facebook group called Jeepers Creepers fans and it is under control by individuals that were involved with Jeepers Creepers 3. One of the members knows Victor Salva personally and claims he was told that Salva would rather focus on the TV series. This individual also claims that the reason Jeepers Creepers 3 was not a sequel to Jeepers Creepers 2 as planned is because Salva “didn’t want to do the origin story in the lowest budget film of the series.” The individual also shared his approval from reading sections of the tv series and says it will be set in the Poho County area from the first three films.
It seems Jonathan Breck’s statements from last year are true and a Jeepers Creepers television series is written and waiting to be made. For fans of the films it seems we may be getting Jeepers Creepers 4 and Jeepers Creepers: The Series.
