'Jeepers Creepers 3' Casts Its Creeper Hunter (Exclusive)
The Creeper has found someone new to terrorize.
Brandon Stacy has been cast in Jeepers Creepers 3, the long-awaited third installment of writer-director Victor Salva’s cult horror series. Stacy will play Miller, a deputy who in his off-hours leads a band of people on the hunt for the Creeper.
The original 2001 movie starred Justin Long and Gina Philips as a brother and sister who run across a creature known as the Creeper, who feasts on body parts to make it part of its own. The sequel Jeepers Creepers 2 followed in 2003.
The third film sees Philips return as Trish, who now worries that years later, the Creeper (once again played by Jonathan Breck) will take her son, just as it did her brother. Her solution is to go after the Creeper herself. Stacy's credits include last year's Roots revival on History, as well as The Big Short and Terminator: Genisys. He also appears with Tom Cruise in Doug Liman’s upcoming American Made.
Jeepers Creepers 3 is currently filming in Baton Rouge, La.
