Universal Pictures Sets THE PURGE Sequel for June 20, 2014

Universal had a sleeper hit with the horror film The Purge earlier this summer, so naturally they need to get a sequel out as quickly as possible.  The studio has sent out a press release announcing “the next chapter of The Purge” will be released on June 20, 2014.  For those who didn’t see the first film, it’s a speculative thriller where all crimes are legal during the annual “Purge”, which preserves peace and prosperity for the other 364 days of the year.  During the Purge, a well-to-do family is attacked when they rescue an injured citizen from a violent mob.  Writer/director/producer James DeMonaco will produce alongside other returning producers Jason Blum, Sébastien K. Lemercier, Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, and Andrew Form.  It’s a fairly quick turnaround, so perhaps the sequel will stick to the small scale of the original.

The Purge sequel will share the weekend with the comedy Think Like a Man Too and Clint Eastwood‘s screen adaptation of the musical Jersey Boys.

    I hope the new one is a bunch of different stories focusing on people participating in the purge.

    Although it would likely be too expensive for such a micro-budget franchise, I’d like to see the sequel follow a group of people out on the streets during The Purge.

    That is FAST turnaround. Have they even shot footage yet?

    “The Purge” has a great premise. I hope the sequel at least tries to live up to it this time around.

      agreed, the concept was great….the execution, not so much.

        Yeah. It quickly turned to a home invasion movie, which was a pity because it’s such an awesome idea. I would have even settled for the son in school discussing it in class, and the kids debating it.

        haha yah no doubt…because the idea of something like this existing in the real world, might actually work in a country like the united states where murders and gun law violations are already so prevalent.

    The first one was just so bad though. The decisions of the characters were outrageously stupid
