We were hoping that The Purge: Anarchy would not be it for the successful series that started with Ethan Hawke defending his family in the first movie. News has arisen that The Purge 3 is a go and that we can expect the flick on July 1, 2016.
Blumhouse Productions, Universal Pictures and Platinum Dunes made the announcement as many a horror fan has now added this date to their calendars!
The Purge movies have made over $200 million and follow what happens in a near-future United States where crime is at an all-time low since the establishment of the titular night. For one 12-hour period a year, all crime -- even murder -- is legal.
The creator of the series and director of the first two, James DeMonaco, is set to return to direct The Purge 3 -- which we think will have some other name by the time July 2016 rolls around.
