The Purge 6 Already Has A Script, Will Bring Frank Grillo Back To The Franchise

The Purge will go on. Despite chatter ahead of the release of "The Forever Purge," which hit theaters this summer, that the fifth installment would end the long-running franchise, plans have changed.

‘The Purge’ Creator James DeMonaco Intended for ‘The Forever Purge’ to Be the Finale – But He Also Has a Pitch for a Sixth Film [Interview]

James DeMonaco didn’t expect The Purge to become what it has. The writer and director originally imagined the first movie as a small indie, but with backing from Blumhouse and Universal, we all know how it evolved: four sequels and a TV spin-off. It’s a series DeMonaco thought was coming to an end with The Forever Purge…but even that may change, if producer Jason Blum has his way. If the fifth film is the end, though, it does have a conclusion both for the story at hand and the franchise at lar...

Fairplex in Pomona ready to take center stage as film production resumes

“Lights … camera … mask on … action!” Directors might be using these words soon to begin production on movies, television, and music videos following a three-month shutdown of filming caused by the coronavirus pandemic. On Wednesday, June 10, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and the Department of Public Health announced that crews could resume filming on Friday, June 12. But with that decision came a lengthy list of safety protocols that must be implemented, meaning it’s unlikely film...

‘The Purge 5’ is Now Titled ‘The Forever Purge’

The title of the next Purge sequel has been revealed, and it’s pretty fitting: The Forever Purge. It’s as if the makers of the film realized that we’re already trapped in a never-ending nightmare, and they might as well take advantage of that with this title. The Purge is usually set on the one night of a year where all crime is legal, but throwing “forever” into the title suggests that The Purge has reached a point where it’s become an ongoing, constant source of turmoil. And we can all certai...

The Next ‘Purge’ Movie Will End the Franchise

The Purge started with quite the enticing and unique concept: a 12-hour period where all crime is legal. While the first film squandered the premise a bit with your standard home invasion thriller, the sequels that followed took it in a more interesting direction, even if they still haven’t taken full advantage of the possibilities within The Purge universe. But it sounds like creator James DeMonaco will have one more chance. After writing all four of The Purge movies and directing three of the...

Everything We Learned on the Set of USA’s ‘The Purge’ TV Series [Set Visit]

I’m not one to champion a whole bunch of sequels, prequels, and spinoffs, but let me tell you something — when it was announced that there was going to be a TV adaptation of The Purge, I perked right up.   I’m a fan of the film franchise — and its unflinching indictment of our real-life dystopia highlighting our history of violence and rage — and I was interested to see how creator James DeMonaco and producer Jason Blum would expand the story in an episodic format. After visiting their New Orl...

‘The Purge: The Island’ Will Tell the Story of the First Purge Night

Last year’s The Purge: Election Year didn’t exactly close the door on the popular horror series, but it did conclude with things looking up for the nightmarish near-future America where all crime is legalized for one night each year. If it was the final film, it would have been a satisfying ending. But the Purge movies are cheap to make and they gross a lot of money, so a fourth film was inevitable. And the series is going back to where it all began. So, how exactly does an evil government get ...
