In case you didn't know, The Purge 2 is well into production. Well, not at this very moment – everyone is on holiday break. But yes, The Purge 2 began rolling cameras in December, on track for a June 20, 2014 release date from Universal. To remind fans, Blumhouse Productions – the outfit behind last year's hit The Purge – posted a little teaser. Nothing much. Just a little something. A countdown, if you will.
Original writer-director James DeMonaco is returning for the sequel and Frank Grillo is starring alongside Michael K. Williams, Zach Gilford, Carmen Ejogo and Kiele Sanchez.
I'm curious – will this break out beyond the confines of a house this time? Will the canvas open up allowing us to see the world The Purge is painted on? Blumhouse has a very "if it isn't broke, don't fix it" mentality (see: the Paranormal Activity series), but I'll be curious to see if DeMonaco gives us a taste of "the bigger picture."
Well, we'll find out in six months, won't we?
