Rumors about the plot of Jeepers Creepers 3 for some time now, and today brings an interesting update. We’ve already reported that Gina Phillips will be reprising her role as Trish in the threequel, but a casting call put out for the movie has now revealed a bit more about Phillips’ role in the movie.
Thanks to Bloody Disgusting, you can read the synopsis attached to the casting call below.
“Trish Jenner is now a mother of a teenage son named Darry, named after the brother she lost 23 years ago. Trish has a recurring nightmare where her son suffers the same fate as her brother did, killed by the Creeper. Determined to prevent this from happening, Trish, who is now a rich and powerful woman, sets out on a final quest with Jack Taggart Sr. and Jr. to end the Creeper’s reign of terror once and for all. The Creeper fights back in gory glory as its enemies grow closer than ever before to learning the secret of its dark origins.”
The film, titled Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral is scheduled to start filming very soon – as soon as next month.
This comes as very exciting news; too often do we see horror sequels where a female lead returns as broken and wounded. To hear Phillips’ character described as “rich and powerful” makes me feel all sorts of warm and fuzzy inside. We need more Ripleys. We need more heroines!
Also exciting is that Darry’s story will get a final bit of closure. Anyone who has seen the first two films will know what happens with Justin Long’s character, and I am very interested to see what they do with Darry Part 2. Will Justin Long be making an appearance? Flashbacks? Will Trish be haunted by apparitions of her brother? So many questions!
I hope that progress on the film gets started soon for the fans’ sake. There have been many serious issues regarding director Victor Salva that have gotten in the way of the film getting finished – or started, for that matter – so I wonder if there will be any more during the course of the filming.
Only time will tell, I suppose. Until then, stay updated with all of your horror movie news here at iHorror.com.
