1st one was a great idea, coulda been so much more...

My idea for a sequel would be that the Purge is so successful in boosting the economy that the government gets greedy ten years after the events of Purge 1 and decides to do a year-long Purge starting on January 1st with only one day, the following December 31st, as the day in which all crime is illegal. If your registered family members all survive the year, you win immunity from all further Purge days to come in the future when it goes back to the 364-off/1-on schedule. Lena Heady is back and

Lena Heady is back and her life has become something of a valued prize and urban legend in the last decade and she battled people every year until now when she goes after the families that killed her husband so they can't ever win immunity. It would be cool to see her all tough after another 10 or so purges and going all Home Alone on people's houses with the help of her badass grown kids. Too crazy?
