Variety had the exclusive news not too long ago, that Screen Media has acquired the rights to Jeepers Creepers: Reborn. It’s beloved to be coming out in the fall of 2021. A lot of the horror community may be shocked at the news since the creator is a known pedophile. Luckily he’s not involved with this installment.
Seth Needle, Screen Media’s SVP of global acquisitions and co-productions, is executive producing on behalf of the company.
Here’s the synopsis:
“The film unfolds as the Horror Hound festival holds its first ever event in Louisiana, where it attracts hundreds of geeks, freaks and die-hard horror fans from far and wide. Among them is fanboy Chase and his girlfriend Laine, who is forced to come along for the ride. But as the event approaches, Laine begins to experience unexplained premonitions and disturbing visions associated with the town’s past, and in particular, local legend/urban myth The Creeper. As the festival arrives and the blood-soaked entertainment builds to a frenzy, Laine believes that something unearthly has been summoned…and that she is at the center of it.”
As I enjoyed the first one the sequels were lackluster, here’s hoping the reboot can somewhat be as good as the original.
