There is hope after all as it appears The Forever Purge wasn’t the end.
As reported by JoBlo.com, the summer installment of The Purge horror franchise was supposed to be the series’ final outing, but series creator and writer James DeMonaco and returning star Frank Grillo say more is to come.
Leo Barnes, who appeared in The Purge: Anarchy and The Purge: Election Year (but sat out this year’s sequel), is back. After talking about it with DeMonaco, who recently said he was working on another script, he’s eager to begin shooting The Purge 6 (or whatever its title might be).
Earlier this week, Grillo said that we were committed to filming Purge 6 with (James DeMonaco) directing. “Leo Barnes was the inspiration for this character. I’m excited. He’s going to send me the script. He just finished it. I’m really psyched about that. I love doing the Purge movies.”
Grillo’s involvement in the next film was recently confirmed by DeMonaco. “My Purge 6 idea is all about Frank. It’s all about the Leo character,” explains the filmmaker. “Without giving anything away, I think he’s off on his own, but he’s going to be called back into action.”
DeMonaco revealed that he had come up with “a new way to flip the whole thing upside down. It’ll be five years after (The Forever Purge), but it takes America in a whole new direction, and I think it would be a very interesting place to explore.”
From Blumhouse Productions and Platinum Dunes comes The Forever Purge, which is directed by Everardo Gout and written by DeMonaco. There are several actors in the film, including Ana de la Reguera, Tenoch Huerta, Will Patton, Josh Lucas, Cassidy Freeman, and Leven Rambin.
In the original 2013 film The Purge, DeMonaco wrote and directed the story of a dystopian America where all crimes – including murder – were legal for a 12-hour period every year.
