You know the part in scary movies when somebody does something really stupid, and everybody hates them for it? This is it.

Add another sequel to the list, because it looks like Jeepers Creepers 3 is a go.

It’s been rumored for a while, and now, director Victor Salva’s cult-favorite series will be financed by Myriad Pictures.

Jonathan Breck will return as the Creeper and Brandon Smith as his pursuer, Sergeant Davis Tubbs.  The movie’s leads haven’t yet been cast, but it is set to begin production in Vancouver early next year.

Francis Ford Coppola’s production company American Zoetrope will co-produce the film.

The original, released in 2001, and its sequel, released in 2003, focused on an ancient creature called the Creeper who hunts for 23 days every 23rd spring for human body parts and organs. Yummy! Both movies grossed a combined $120 million at the worldwide box office.

Salva had this to say about the announcement:

Writing and directing a new Jeepers film, the first in over a decade, is incredibly exciting. For me and I believe for Jeepers fans all over the world that have been asking for more.

What will go before cameras as Jeepers Creepers 3 is a new and terrifying chapter from the Jeepers universe. We are bringing back the Creeper’s truck, and will be addressing the big questions about The Creeper: what it is, where it came from and why it does what it does.

More exciting though, this will easily be the most frightening rollercoaster -ride -of- a-Jeepers film that has been made to date.

Salva has been talking about the possibility additional movies and a TV series since the release of the sequel nearly 13 years ago, so this announcement is a long time coming.

Are you excited for the latest installment of the Creeper?
