‘Jeepers Creepers 3’ in the Works From Producer Francis Ford Coppola

The “Jeepers Creepers” horror franchise, backed by Francis Ford Coppola, is back for a third time.

Jeepers Creepers 3” is in development with production expected to launch in Vancouver early next year. Myriad Pictures announced Friday that it will finance the pic, which it’s launching international sales for at the Toronto Film Festival.

The original “Jeepers Creepers” was released in 2001, followed by “Jeepers Creepers 2” in 2003. The two movies centered on an ancient creature, known as “the Creeper,” which hunts for 23 days every 23rd spring for human body parts and organs.

The two films grossed a combined $120 million at the worldwide box office.

Jeepers Creepers 3” reunites the original creative team behind the first two films, including writer-director Victor Salva. Jonathan Breck will reprise his role as the Creeper and Brandon Smith returns as Sergeant Davis Tubbs.

Coppola’s American Zoetrope, which produced the first two films, will co-produce along with Kirk Shaw and Surai Gohill’s Odyssey Media, and Stan Spry’s The Cartel. Coppola, Shaw and Spry will serve as producers and Myriad’s Kirk D’Amico will executive produce.
