Least surprising news of the day: Plans for The Purge 2 already in the works

Jun. 11, 2013by: Jesse Giroux

The Purge

Before the full weekend box office report was released I saw that THE PURGE had pulled in over $16 million alone on Friday and instantly thought to myself, "How long is it going to be before a sequel is announced?" Well today I got my answer. The Wrap is reporting that Universal and Blumhouse Productions are already developing a sequel to the surprise hit. Blumhouse also essentially tweeted the same thing from their Twitter account:

Jason Blum (head of Blumhouse) has apparently already applied for California's Film and Television Credit program for THE PURGE 2 so filming should start before the end of the year. At this time though there is no news on which (if any) cast members will be back or if writer/director James DeMonaco will return for the sequel.

I haven't seen THE PURGE yet but from what I've heard it's not a bad flick. The focus of the film seemed very narrow for what was suppose to be a nationwide purge but I'm sure a lot of that had to do with how small the film's budget was. However they should have more money to work with for the sequel and hopefully THE PURGE 2 will expand on the ideas from the first movie and move away from being just a home invasion film. If you saw THE PURGE over the weekend share your opinions on the film in the Strike Back below and also what you would like to see in the sequel.

Extra Tidbit: Ethan Hawke has been on a nice little roll lately with THE PURGE, BEFORE MIDNIGHT and last year's SINISTER. Good for you dude!

Purge 2 URGE TO PURGE

What needs to be in the purge 2 is where it shows the film at the same exact house in the first one, showing of the people who survive. I hope you guys make it where Rhys Wakefield isn't dead, but has severe wounds. I really want him back.

Maybe they'll show five different locations of peoples' lives affected by "The Purge".

Sounds like another Saw series to me. Have not seen it but from the reviews, it seems the focus on the actual Puge was lacking, which was suppossed to be the main pint right?

I thought the film was pretty boring. Barely even a horror movie and more of a thriller. The montage of people getting murdered during the opening credits is more intense than anything that happens after it.

I pretty much hate horror franchises, nothing screams "Cash Grab" any louder. But this is one movie I would actually like to see a sequel to, and that I think could be better than the original. Nothing against The Purge, it was actually a great flick, but given the premise and the potential for them to explore this world a little more, the sequel could be even better than the first.

As for a title, The Purge 2: Jafar's Revenge or The Purge 2: Simba's Pride
