A third instalment in The Purge series has been announced, but we will have to wait until next year to see it.
It was bound to happen. The Purge, which stared Ethan Hawke, was a surprising hit when it was released in 2013. Last year’s The Purge: Anarchy also did well, raking in over $110 million worldwide on just a paltry $9 million budget.
Now, a third film has been announced and is set for release in 2016. No details regarding the film have been released as yet, but that is expected seeing how early we are from the film’s production.
Set in the near future, The Purge tells the story of America making one night of the year lawless. Anything goes for the American citizens and they are free to steal, harm or even murder each other with no threat of arrest.
Both the Purge and The Purge: Anarchy are set during the same night, but both stories aren’t connected through characters. This will likely be the same for the third film.
Pencilled in for a July 1st 2016 release; The Purge 3 will have to go up against a few big hitters in Independence Day 2, Tarzan and Steven Spielberg’s BFG.
