THE FOREVER PURGE Won’t Be The Final PURGE Film After All.
When The Forever Purge movie was announced, we were told it would be the final film in The Purge franchise. According to a recent interview, creator James DeMonaco has come up with an idea for a sixth Purge film and is now developing it.
During a recent interview with Dread Central, the filmmaker shared, “Between you and I, man, I really intended for [The Forever Purge] to be the last one … up until four months ago when I woke up and had an idea for [The Purge] 6. I had this idea … I can flip this thing upside down and we can continue this, maybe, in a way that people can enjoy … I’m actually outlining it right now in between these interviews! If the Movie Gods say, ‘People want to see it,’ then we’ll do it. But I always leave it to the audience to tell us if they want more of it. But we’re ready! I have another one if they want it.”
If The Forever Purge manages to kill it at the box office, you can rest assured Universal Pictures and Blumhouse will be on board for a sixth film.
Producer Jason Blum even previously said, “I’m trying to make him write more. I would never do it without James. I wouldn’t hire someone else to do Purge movies, but I’m not through, and I’m going to try and talk him into a few more.”
The Forever Purge hits theaters on July 2nd.
