Everardo Gout, who helmed several episodes Nat Geo’s “Mars” has signed on to direct the next installment of The Purge franchise for Blumhouse, Platinum Dunes, and Universal Pictures.



Following the success of last year’s The First Purge (review), which is the highest-grossing film of the franchise, creator James DeMonaco, who penned the first three films, is returning to pen the script.



The franchise centers on the annual day where for 12 hours all crime is legal. The plot for the new installment is being kept under wraps at this point but we assume the movie will follow the same pattern.



Jason Blum, Man in a Tree duo Demonaco and Sébastien K. Lemercier will produce alongside Platinum Dunes’ Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, and Andrew Form.



The Purge 5 is set to be released on July 10, 2020. The movie isn’t the only Purge project on the way, USA’s “The Purge” series’ second season will premiere this fall.
