THR reports that the sequel to Universal and Blumhouse’s The Purge has added “The Wire” actor Michael K. Williams, pictured above, Sparkle star Carmen Ejogo, “Friday Night Lights” and Devil’s Due actor Zach Gilford, below, and A Perfect Getaway actress Kiele Sanchez to its cast.

The sequel, which will hit theaters on Friday, June 20, 2014, will see the return of writer-director James DeMonaco. It was recently announced that Frank Grillo will star.

Returning alongside writer-director-producer DeMonaco and Jason Blum to produce the next chapter of the thriller are Sebastien Lemercier and Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes.

The sequel should reside in a similar setting to the original, where, once a year, there’s a 12-hour period when all crime is allowed and condoned.

    I really wanted the first one to be good, but I didn’t like it at all. The only thing the film had going for it was the cool concept of The Purge, which could have been taken to so much more of a higher level. If they are doing a sequel then they need to not even make it look like it’s related to the original other than the concept….and please don’t call it The Purge 2…I don’t think they are which is good they’re on the right track lol :)

      I agree with everything you said! And Im kinda glad they are doing this sequel, because the concept is way too cool to waste. Hopefully they get it right this time. There should be a lot more chaos and a lot more blood. Im am loving this cast so far though.
