THE PURGE 3 Announced; James DeMonaco May Return to Direct

With the success of the first two films, another installment in The Purge franchise was inevitable. I think the concept is very ripe for a franchise that’s consistently renewable and can be set in a variety of different locales with different actors and scenarios. So I’m welcoming the announcement of The Purge 3 as good news (thought we all sort of knew it would happen anyway, at this point its simple math given the budget and returns on these films).  Writer/director James DeMonaco will return to pen the script, though his participation as a director is not yet set in stone.

 

DeMonaco told Deadline:

“I never imagined that The Purge would become the phenomenon it has become and I am thrilled to continue my collaboration with Blumhouse, Sebastien Lemercier, Platinum Dunes and the great team at Universal in building The Purge into a worldwide franchise.”

Here’s hoping The Purge 3 will continue the upward trend started by The Purge: Anarchy.
