Y’lan Noel (Insecure), pictured above, and Lex Scott Davis (Training Day) are set to star in Purge: The Island, Universal Pictures’ The Purge prequel to for release next July, this tracking board reports.
Gerard McMurray (Burning Sands) will direct from a script by The Purge creator James DeMonaco, who returns to produce Blumhouse chief Jason Blum and Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, as well as Sebastien K. Lemercier.
Set on Staten Island, the film will demonstrate how the New Founding Fathers’ batshit crazy plan to rescue a dying economy turned into a national holiday in which all crime — including rape and murder — is legal for one whole night each year.
DeMonaco promised that Island will be the most “crowd-pleasing” of the Purge films.
