The long-running horror franchise The Purge is set to continue this year with a new entry. Up to this point, things have remained extremely hush hush about what Blumhouse Productions and Universal Pictures have in store for us on Purge night this time around.
However we have been given our first insight into this latest instalment with the reveal of the films titles.
According to an article from the Hollywood Reporter, the upcoming 5th installment to The Purge movie franchise will be titled The Forever Purge.
Buried within a new report that briefly caught up with Blumhouse head Jason Blum is a glimpse at what he’s working on during the widespread shutdown in Hollywood right now.
At which point, it was revealed that The Forever Purge is the title of the fifth entry in the series. Unfortunately, no additional details were revealed at this time, leaving us with more questions than answers.
Previously, series creator James DeMonaco hinted that this film will be the final entry in the series and the title seems to reflect this.
In October 2018, DeMonaco stated:
“I think it’s a great way to end it all. We want to end it all, I think, in this one, and I’m very excited. When I came up with the idea and pitched it to everybody, they seemed psyched, and I think it will be a really cool ending, how we take this one home.”
The cast includes Leven Rambin (True Detective), Ana de la Reguera (Goliath), Will Patton (Halloween), Cassidy Freeman (Longmire) and Tenoch Huerta (Narcos: Mexico).
Everardo Gout will direct the film. The film is scheduled to be released in the United States on July 10, 2020, by Universal Pictures, however, the release may be delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
To date, across four entries, The Purge franchise has grossed $458 million at the global box office.
The movies also spawned a Purge TV show, which has aired two seasons on USA Network and is available on Amazon now.
