There have been a lot of issues with regards to the production of ‘Jeepers Creepers 3’ following a series of revelations that halted its development.

Earlier this year, the director Victor Salva’s disturbing past was uncovered, showing that he had in fact been convicted of paedophilia back in 1988 and had served his sentence in prison. This came to light during the production of the third ‘Jeepers Creepers’ movie, as he had put out a casting call for an 18-year-old kid to play a 13-year-old in the movie, and let’s just say, a lot of people were not happy about it.
While some die-hard fans of the franchise wanted to see the story continue, others thought that Salva’s past and his current actions were not excusable and that he should just drop the project altogether.
However, regardless of this scandal, it looks like the movie is going ahead, after a new poster emerged showing that it is “coming soon.” Producer Stan Spry also assured fans that it’s happening.
So there you have it – we’re going to see the ‘Jeepers Creepers’ saga be turned into a trilogy and quite frankly, I’m delighted. Got to love a bit of tacky, monster horror. Hopefully it will be better than the ‘Blair Witch’ sequel.
