Good news about The Purge 2 (aka The Zone), which continues to film for release on June 20, 2014. I really liked the concept of the first film, but was frustrated when they turned everything inward and kept it inside Ethan Hawke’s house. It felt like most of the interesting stuff was happening outside.
And outside is where we’ll go in the sequel according to actor Zach Gilford who told Fangoria, ““With the sequel, I thought they had a really great way to do a sequel because the first one took place in an upscale suburb with what happens to a family there when their security system doesn’t work. With this one, there’s none of the same characters, but it’s the same day of the year and it takes place in the city where there are no security systems and it’s just like a war zone where people are just trying to survive. So I thought it was pretty interesting to take that concept and to look at it from a different angle.”
James DeMonaco returns for the sequel that also stars Frank Grillo, Michael K. Williams, Carmen Ejogo and Kiele Sanchez. It was also revealed that Carmen Ejogo, Zoe Borde, and Chad Morgan round out the cast. The first film took place in the future where 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.
