A true horror staple right now, The purge it may, in fact, go on forever. Or at least for a more unexpected delivery. This, according to franchise creator James DeMonaco, who reveals that The Purge 6 i It’s apparently in the cards and may even film next year. This, despite previous hints that The Forever Purge, which hits theaters this weekend, would be the final entry in the popular horror series.
James DeMonaco has been doing the press rounds to promote the launch of The eternal purge. During a recent interview, he was asked about the possibility of another sequel, despite having previously said no to the idea. Be that as it may, DeMonaco now has an idea, and if the audience wants it, it’s going to happen. This is what he said about it.
“I’m happy you asked that, because now I can say it. I wasn’t allowed to do it a couple of days ago. So four months ago, I would have said, ‘Definitely, that’s the end.’ . But then I woke up three and a half months ago and I was like, ‘Oh, I have an idea. OMG’. It was an ‘Oh shit’ moment like, ‘Oh, I don’t know if I want another idea,’ but I had it. I introduced it to my producers, Sébastien and Jason. They both really liked it. Universal liked it, so I think I’ll write the next one, and if the public wants it, we will. I always say that if the gods of cinema want us to do it, they will tell us, let’s proceed.
Weather James DeMonaco did not delve into what that idea could be, specifically, it paves the way for The purge continue. It all comes down to whether or not the audience shows up to watch The eternal purge during his run at the box office. If so, James DeMonaco explained that the sixth installment would bring back a familiar character and that production could begin next year. Assuming all goes well.
“Again, I think I came up with a new way to turn it all around, and it will be five years after this movie, but it takes America in a whole new direction and I think it would be a very interesting place to explore. It also brings back a character from the previous movies, which is fun. So if all goes well, and we know anything can happen, a last Purge movie would be something that maybe we would shoot next year, potentially. “
Blumhouse Productions and Universal Pictures have every motivation to continue the franchise. To date, in four entries, the series has earned $ 458 million at the worldwide box office. Considering that the largest budget for any of these entries was $ 13 million, they have been tremendously profitable. As such, if there’s a way to keep it going, it’s easy to see why the studio would.
Everardo Gout directs the latest installment. The cast includes Ana de la Reguera, Tenoch Huerta, Josh Lucas, Cassidy Freeman, Leven Rambin, Alejandro Edda, and Will Patton. We will see if it is the final or not Purge. The eternal purge hits theaters this weekend. This news comes to us through Daily dread.
