Get ready for more surprising, breaking news from the set of the highly anticipated but troubled Jeepers Creepers sequel
So this is going around now…
Jeepers Creepers 3, which I, along with everybody else, thought to be titled Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral, is now being said otherwise. Interesting enough, the word comes via Twitter from a new star recently added to the cast.
PLUS, speaking of the cast, there’s word Gina Phillips is NOT, I repeat NOT, the star! That…kinda sucks.
To start off, I found out Stan Shaw joined the cast of Jeepers Creepers 3 through Variety. The actor is set to portray a sheriff hunting down the Creeper. Now that’s all well and good. But what shocked me is was what the actor revealed on social media:
NO! Cathedral is non nonexistence, that's material from more than 12 years ago. It has nothing to do with 3. Different film~different title! https://t.co/x3YBHWFiOo

On Twitter, Shaw tweeted Jeepers Creepers 3 is in fact NOT titled with the moniker of Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral. He also dropped the bomb that the installment will not follow the revealed plot! The actor went on to reveal the plot previously released was in fact old.
@KyleHanna6 Thnx Kyle. It's a prequel to JC2 so it doesn't make sense for my character to be in it timeline wise. But the film will be just as great. 🙂

And to top it all off, a Twitter user of the name of @KyleHanna6 tweeted Jeepers Creepers 2 star Mariah Delfino to express his sadness she wasn’t brought back to reprise her role as Rhonda. The actress then responded back with her appreciation for Hanna’s comment. But, in the process, she also shot an even bigger nugget of news our way regarding the production of the creature feature; Jeepers Creepers 3 is a prequel! AND she’s not starring in it! Weird she’s not starring in it but knows this key bit of information.
But…A PREQUEL??! Did we miss something???!
I know, I know, a lot of you will call foul because Delfino isn’t verified. But, reportedly, even the Creeper’s double (Dalton Smith) verified this information. So it looks like Jeepers Creepers 3 will in fact be a prequel to Jeepers Creepers 2. Credibility at this point is up in the air though. So I wouldn’t get too excited (or disappointed)…just yet.
On another note, JEEPERS CREEPERS 3 has finally wrapped up filming. And rumors are circulating that Gina Phillips only has a cameo in the film rather than the lead role, as previously widely reported. Word also has it that Victor Salva was shooting from a new script he wrote. What that script is about, who the hell knows! All I know is, I hope this film doesn’t suck. I’ll keep you posted.
The newest Jeepers is set to star Shaw (The Monster Squad) alongside Jonathan Breck reprising his role as the the Creeper, Meg Foster (They Live), Chester Rushing (“Stranger Things“), Ryan Moore (Pitchfork), Patrick Thomas Cragin (“How to Be a Vampire”), Brandon Smith (“From Dusk Till Dawn”), Gabrielle Haugh (Mother, May I Sleep With Danger?), and Justin Hall (Django Unchained). Michael Papajohn, Megan Elizabeth Wright, Jason Bayle, Cade Burk, Joyce Giraud, and Jordan Salloum, Don Yesso, David Davis, Brandon Stacy, Casey Hendershot, Thomas Francis Murphy, and Carrie Lazar also have roles in the production.
