We’re finding out now that the deal Dynamite signed with MGM to produce comics based on the horror movie Pumpkinhead also gives the New Jersey based publisher the ability to do comics based on the 2001 horror film Jeepers Creepers. The film starred Gina Philips, Justin Long, Jonathan Breck and Eileen Brennan and was written and directed by Victor Salva. The film spawned a sequel in 2003 set 4 days after the events of the first film.
The synopsis for the film: A brother and sister driving home through isolated countryside for spring break encounter a flesh-eating creature which is on the last day of its ritualistic eating spree.
No word on the creative team for the series, but it’s likely that the timing of the comics series could coincide with the announced Jeepers Creepers 3 that is in post-production and features the return of Philips and Breck.
