‘The Purge’ Happens Once Again In 2014

Universal Pictures announced that “the next chapter of The Purge” will be released on June 20, 2014.

Evan Dickson speculated here that the film begins shooting this December under the title The Zone. I hope this means we’ll actually get out into the world of The Purge as the opening montage was the best part of this past summer’s blockbuster.

In the film starring Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, and Max Burkholder, a wealthy family is held hostage for harboring the target of a murderous syndicate during the Purge, a 12-hour period in which any and all crime is legalized.

James DeMonaco, who directs once again, will also produce with Jason Blum, Sébastien K. Lemercier, Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, and Andrew Form.

    I wasn’t a fan of the first one at all. I thought they could have done so much better with the premise. But its such an interesting scenario that I will give the second one a chance. Hopefully they learn from the mistakes of the first one and start fresh

    Dang, 7 months eh? Minus whatever time they take to shoot it.. Anyway, the first one disappointed me to some degree. The premise is just such a great set-up for a balls-to-the-wall flick. Being in a house of people you could care less about just wasn’t the right approach IMO. Maybe start in a house but then enter the rest of the world. Idk theres so many possibilities and awesome opportunities. This sequel is no surprise nor will the next sequel be, I just hope they take it up a serious notch. Maybe “The Zone” is a place where there is no security system to begin with. That was such a buzz kill for me in the first one for some reason.

    Why? Putting aside the fact the premise is completely ridiculous and that you wouldn’t create a utopia by letting people do whatever they want for a day, these people don’t know how to do anything interesting with what at one point could have been an intelligent screenplay.

    Turning it into a generic slasher flick undermines the potential this premise has and it just shows how lazy they are when it’s basically just the reason why no one calls the cops. I can only imagine it still won’t be anything worth while especially coming out so soon. Just another drop in the bucket for quick sequel cash ins.

    The ending of the first ruined it for me. It’s like they didn’t even try. But, I could see the sequel changing that… say a certain family wanting revenge, changing there morals.

    From what I hear they should’ve went with more of a serious take on “the signal”.
