‘The Purge’ Sequel Hitting Theaters in June 2014


The next chapter of Universal and Blumhouse’s horror thriller will see the return of writer-director James DeMonaco.

The first film – starring Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey – was a massive hit when it opened in theaters in early June this year. The horror thriller, made for about $3 million, surprised Hollywood when it scared up $34 million on its opening weekend. It has earned $89.3 million worldwide to date.


The film was set in a society where once a year, there’s a 12-hour period when all crime is allowed and condoned.

Producer Jason Blum and Universal announced that they would move forward with a sequel on June 10.

Returning alongside writer-director-producer DeMonaco and Blum to produce the next chapter of the thriller are Sebastien Lemercier and Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form.
