Universal sets release date for 'PURGE 5'
Another 12-hours of terror is coming in 2020 — After four films and an impressive $456 million dollar worldwide gross, it only felt like a matter of time until Universal would greenlight the FIFTH entry of ’The Purge’ series.Today, Universal did just that. Announcing the next chapter of James DeMonaco’s dystopian horror franchise will be returning July 10, 2020.Series creator, James DeMonaco, is confirmed to write and direct Universal’s untitled entry. Sources did not confirm who, beyond DeMonaco, will be involved and when the fifth entry will take place. After 2018’s lackluster prequel The First Purge, I wouldn’t be shocked to see the fifth installment pick up after the annual “purge” was officially declared illegal at the conclusion of Purge: Election Year. At any rate, it sounds like there’s more to story explore in what was considered a forward-thinking genre meditation on race, class, and politics.Blumhouse will once again co-produce along with Platinum Dunes.
