Universal had a sleeper hit with the horror film The Purge earlier this summer, so naturally they need to get a sequel out as quickly as possible.  The studio has sent out a press release announcing “the next chapter of The Purge” will be released on June 20, 2014.  For those who didn’t see the first film (check out Chris’ Review), it’s a speculative thriller where all crimes are legal during the annual “Purge”, which preserves peace and prosperity for the other 364 days of the year.  During the Purge, a well-to-do family is attacked when they rescue an injured citizen from a violent mob.  Writer/director/producer James DeMonaco will produce alongside other returning producers Jason Blum, Sébastien K. Lemercier, Michael Bay,Brad Fuller, and Andrew Form.  It’s a fairly quick turnaround, so perhaps the sequel will stick to the small scale of the original.

The Purge sequel will share the weekend with the comedy Think Like a Man Too and Clint Eastwood‘s screen adaptation of the musical Jersey Boys.
