Movie News: A Sequel to The Purge is Happening
For whatever reason, The Purge is getting a sequel.
Actually, there is a reason a follow-up is happening: The Purge opened this weekend at the top spot of the box office with $34 million – over 10 times as much as the film’s budget.
So The Purge 2: Purge Harder (just kidding!) is happening, as Universal and producer Jason Blum are going to work.
We thought the Ethan Hawke-starring film was better than expected but missed out on a lot of opportunities exploring the idea of The Purge itself. I think this is something that could be addressed in a sequel as it’s an event that is very sprawling with many different elements and characters that could be visited and different routes that could be taken.
