TheWrap reports that Warner Bros.’ “Entourage” movie, cable network FX’s “Justified” and CBS Studios’ relocating “King & Maxwell” are among the 31 projects picked by lottery to receive tax credits from the California Film Commission’s $100 million allocation, the commission revealed Tuesday.
Also hiding within the aforementioned list is The Purge 2, a sequel to Universal Pictures, Platinum Dunes and Blumhouse’s home invasion thriller opening in theaters this Friday.
As of this writing, critics appear to be mixed on the slasher – here’s my review – that takes viewers to an America wracked by crime, where the government has sanctioned an annual 12-hour period in which any and all criminal activity—including murder—is legal. It’s unclear how well the film will perform, but they clearly are gearing up for production on its followup, which could really use a boost on the film’s scope, exiting the cliche Blumhouse-house-based thriller.
James DeMonaco directs the first film, opening this weekend, which stars Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Max Burkholder, Adelaide Kane, Edwin Hodge, Tony Oller, and Rhys Wakefield.
