'The Purge 3' Developing, James DeMonaco Writing & Directing Again
Following this past summer's sequel The Purge: Anarchy, a third round of chaos is being planned. Deadline reports Universal Pictures, Blumhouse Productions and Platinum Dunes are now developing The Purge 3. The second film in the series has pulled in over $108 million worldwide, improving on the first film's $89 million take in 2013, and that means the franchise has potential. James DeMonaco, writer and director of the first two films, will be back in the same capacity this time. More than likely, the third film will shake things up even more, especially after what happened at the end of the second film this year. More below!
In a storyline that wasn't really shown off much in the trailers, Michael K. Williams plays a militant activist out to show that the government is using The Purge to keep the lower class down by sending troops out to execute the impoverished on the streets. They seem to score a small victory at the end of the second film, and it'll be interesting to see if there's fallout from this latest Purge, and if the fight goes all the way to Washington, putting those who aren't normally in danger at risk of becoming victims of the annual consequence-free crime spree. Stay tuned for more!
