Adrienne Barbeau Not Joining the Cast of ‘Jeepers Creepers 3’

Jeepers Creepers 3 reports just keep getting worse and worse, and this latest one is a major disappointment. It was only about a week ago that we heard Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog, Escape From New York, Swamp Thing, Creepshow) had joined the cast of the sequel to play Gaylen Brandon, a tormented woman seeking revenge for her dead son, Kenny, who was murdered by the Creeper.

Twenty three years ago Gaylen’s son Kenny Brandon was one of the Creeper’s victims. Leaving in this shattered woman a burning vendetta. When her long dead son starts to appear to her with warnings about the creature who killed him – Gaylen plots to use the information to end the creature once and for all.

Barbeau took to her official Facebook page last night and explained that she will not be involved in Jeepers Creepers 3 at all. She also praised the script, so we have no idea why it didn’t turn out right for her.

Gina Phillips will repris her as Trish Jenner, with Jonathan Breck back returning to once again play the Creeper. Joining them in the cast are Brandon Smith, Brandon Stacy, Stan Shaw, Chester Rushing, Ryan Moore, Patrick Thomas Cragin, Gabrielle Haugh, Justin Hall, Michael Papajohn, Megan Elizabeth Wright, Jason Bayle, Cade Burk, Joyce Giraud, Jordan Salloum, Don Yesso, David Davis, Casey Hendershot, Thomas Francis Murphy, and Carrie Lazar.

Filming is currently under way on Jeepers Creepers 3 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The third film is written and directed by Victor Salva (Clownhouse).

Synopsis:

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.
