One of the most surprising franchises in horror these days is The Purge, which continues to bring in the money at the box office, much to the delight of Universal who have officially announced a 4th film to come out some time in 2018.
What we know so far is that franchise creator James DeMonaco, who wrote and directed the previous three, is back on the script duties but this time, will not be behind the camera, so the hunt is on for a new person to sit in the directing chair.
Also there are doubts if Frank Grillo, the hero of the films (well- since sequel 2) will be back as the actor previously said he may be done with the franchise after the ending of Purge: Election Year, which seemed to bring the story to a close!
This would make sense as there are whispers that the next film will in fact be a prequel as it will show how this murderous annual event first began. A bit like: The Purge: Year One!
More on this as we get it!
