We recently reported that The Purge franchise is being developed into a television series. Today, we have more news on the film franchise.
Have you ever wondered how The Purge began? The fourth film of the franchise will answer that. That’s right, we are getting a Purge prequel. We are going back to the very beginning to learn how the deadly, lawless night began.
Franchise creator James DeMonaco had this to say about the prequel:
I would actually go back and I would try to talk about how it all started. That seems the natural next chapter in this, is to say, ‘Alright, we’ve done this trilogy. We see how it got to this point of someone trying to end it – this presidential figure. Now let’s go back and see how the fuck all this came about.’ How did this country get to a place where we were now accepting this kind of atrocity, this terrible thing, each year? I think there’s something interesting in that. I don’t think I’ll direct. I’m thinking of maybe writing or at least producing it, to make sure it stays true to what I like about the movies.”
While the film is still pre-production. No director or cast has been announced, but we do know that July 14, 2018 has been set for the film to open in theaters nationwide. Michael Bay, Jason Blum, Andrew Form, Brad Fuller, and Sebastien Lemercier will be producing, according to MovieInsider.com.
We will update you when we know more.
