Recent movement on the Jeepers Creepers 4 IMDB page has us curious about what’s happening on the project.
If you know anything about IMDb it can be as reliable as Wikipedia at times (anyone can edit pages) and any information should be taken with a grain of salt. But there are a few inferred things on the Jeepers Creepers 4 page that immediately caught our attention.
First, the page was updated on May 8, 2020, and says the fourth installment has been “announced” and that in January a “script” was finished. We couldn’t find the link to the recent announcement.
But when IMDb labels an update as “script” it means:
“Completed, copy written manuscript, which has been picked up by a production entity for development. A script may take the form of a screenplay, shooting script, lined script, continuity script, or a spec script.”
But more interestingly Kirk D’Amico’s IMDb page has him “announced” as producer above all of his other pre-production projects.
Kirk D’Amico is the head of Myriad Pictures, a company which according to them is, “a leading independent entertainment company specializing in production, financing and worldwide distribution of feature films and television programming.” We reached out to D’Amico for a comment and he has yet to respond.
From what we understand a title can be tagged as “announced” for years in IMDb without any movement, but the Jeepers Creepers 4 announcement was updated on May 8, 2020. This can mean two things, either it’s rolling along or it’s going to be marked as such for years to come.
The Jeepers Creepers 4 profile also had actor Jonathan Breck listed as rumored to return. Breck played the Creeper in the original and two sequels. We reached out to Breck’s agent and asked if he knew anything about the recent “announced” status and Breck’s association with the project.
“There’s nothing to say really,” his agent responded. “We have had no contact with anyone. However, that doesn’t mean that something isn’t being worked on. Jeepers Creeper 3 showed that status for 12 years.”
We checked back today and Breck’s name has been removed from the Jeepers Creepers 4 IMDb page.
The saga of the troubled Jeepers Creepers franchise is certainly a polarizing one. On the one hand, you have a popular series and on the other the convicted pedophile, Victor Salva, who created it.
Because of recent events regarding Cinestate, the horror industry is looking more closely at what goes on behind the scenes of their movies. A new Jeepers Creepers sequel is probably not a good idea if Salva’s name is attached. In fact, Salva should probably stay away from the project altogether if it’s to gain any respect.
As early as March of 2019, part four was reportedly in development and there was even a rumor of a television series. But nothing ever came of it.
Perhaps these new updates are a sign that the project isn’t dead and might return sometime in the near future.
