Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
For around a decade now, Victor Salva has been trying his best to make a second sequel for the JEEPERS CREEPERS franchise. Many fans are choosing to boycott the film due to Salva’s criminal history, while other fans feel that it is a major bummer that it has been taking so long for the next JEEPERS CREEPERS entry to finally arrive. The first film was able to see great success in both theaters and on the home video releases. Plus the second film raked in $63 million across the globe with only a budget of $17 million. It comes as no surprise that fans would be begging for more. There have been several times when the production on JEEPERS CREEPERS 3 was to supposedly begin, with many setbacks along the way but things are rolling along well as filming officially began last month in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Last month we learned that Adrienne Barbeau had joined the cast of JEEPERS CREEPERS 3, but then just over one week later, she made the announcement that she would not be appearing in the film after all.
We have now learned that replacing Barbeau will be actress Meg Foster in the role of Gaylen Brandon, who’s son Kenny was killed by the Creeper.
This image was posted online by one of the crew members:
The actress has appeared in such genre films as LEVIATHAN, THEY LIVE, STEPFATHER II, THE LORDS OF SALEM, as well as 31. She has 120 film and TV acting credits to her name in total.
Foster joins a cast that already includes Gina Phillips, Jonathan Breck, Brandon Smith, Brandon Stacy, Stan Shaw, Chester Rushing, Ryan Moore, Patrick Thomas Cragin, Gabrielle Haugh, Justin Hall, Michael Papajohn, Megan Elizabeth Wright, Jason Bayle, Cade Burk, Joyce Giraud, Jordan Salloum, Don Yesso, David Davis, Casey Hendershot, Thomas Francis Murphy, and Carrie Lazar.
Jonathan Breck is expected to return as The Creeper. Also expected to return is Brandon Smith who would be reprising his role as Sergeant Davis Tubbs.
"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."
