Francis Ford Coppola Backs ‘Jeepers Creepers 3’

The horror franchiseĀ Jeepers Creepers will get a third installment once again backed by Francis Ford Coppola. Yes, yes, that Francis Ford Coppola.

Jeepers Creepers 3 (which was announced at the Toronto International Film Festival) will reunite the creative team from the first two films, including writer-director Victor Salva and the Creeper himself Jonathan Breck.

Brandon Smith (Sergeant David Tubbs) will also return, with filming expected to begin in 2016.

Both films center around a monster who hunts and eats humans for 23 days, hibernating and returning every 23rd spring. It also ruined the song of the same name from being anything but terrifying.

The original and far superior movie was released in 2001 and was followed by 2003’sĀ Jeepers Creepers 2, which at least starred Ray Wise.
