Producer Jason Blum would love to release a new Purge movie every year

04.04.2014

THE PURGE: ANARCHY will be hitting theaters this summer, and producer Jason Blum says he'd like to do more PURGE movies, possibly with a new one being released every year. Blum spoke with Collider about the upcoming sequel, and the site asked him about possibly releasing a PURGE film every year, similar to his PARANORMAL ACTIVITY franchise.

I hope so. I would love that. There are so many stories you could tell with it.

Collider then asked Blum if they had any plans for a third film while working on THE PURGE: ANARCHY.

Yeah. The first movie, we never make thinking about sequels. The second movie, we always think about sequels. With Insidious 2, Sinister 2, The Purge: Anarchy and even the second Paranormal Activity, we’re establishing a franchise, so we always think about what the third movie will be. I just never think, on the first movie, about what the second movie will be.

Jason Blum also addressed one of the biggest complaints many had with the first film (how almost all of the action takes place in the house) and talked about how THE PURGE: ANARCHY will be much bigger in scope.

A lot of people had that reaction. A lot of people were like, “I liked the idea, but it’s too much in the house.” They didn’t want to see it from one family’s point of view inside the house. They wanted to go outside the house and see what’s going on. So, the entire second movie happens outside the house. The entire second movie is on the streets during The Purge.

I'm one of those people who did think too much time was spent in the house in THE PURGE, however I'm very pleased with what I've seen so far for the sequel. How many more PURGE flicks will there be though? I think stopping after three would be the best idea, but as you all know money talks, and if THE PURGE: ANARCHY is a hit at the box office, we'll probably be seeing more sequels in the future.

THE PURGE: ANARCHY starring Frank Grillo will be in theaters on July 18th, 2014.

Jason Blum has, in a very short period of time, become an absolute, greedy blight on horror cinema.

Ummmmm

How about no!!! that's a better idea first one looked so different and cool in the trailers, then you see it and its just a cliche messed of ideas thrown into a mixing bag and came out looking like shit. It could of been really different and awesome but nope. This one looks like it could be good but I doubt it.

Crap movie with crap ideas....

....will continue to have crap sequels. Seriously, nobody needs to commit crimes because they get a freebee once a year? Absolutely stupidest concept for a movie ever.

It has promise if done correctly.

There are multiple stories to tell, I would actually like this to be anthology type movie. Have 3-4 stories per movie and release them yearly. You could have a slasher type story, a revenge story, a political story, a getting home-(The Warriors), or a protector type also. Very great stories could be told, you just have to find the right writers. The sky is the limit if done correctly.

Nope. It's going to be stale after this second one.

Purge was fine as a standalone movie. The sequel looks ok, I am glad its in a bigger setting. But the problem is they are just going to copy the same storyline over and over each year. I don't even think the second one will be doing well this year.

The first one was average at best. Too many dumb moments from each one of the characters. I still think the storyline for this film should have been the storyline for the first film and it would have been neat if somehow the main characters in this film somehow crossed over with the characters from the first film.

I do like them going outside for this one. That being said...

The next Purge should have a protagonist who is dead set on a plan for revenge. They have Frank Grillo as a guy out for revenge, but then they turn him into a protector.

Dear Jason Blum

You already milked Paranormal Activity for all its worth, why not this franchise too.
