Green light for The Purge 3
After "The Purge: Anarchy" has managed to surpass in receipts even the first "The Purge" and two films together have generated large revenues that go far beyond their budgets, competent contractors (Universal, Blumhouse, Platinum Dunes) decided to create and a third movie! Indeed hired the Director/screenwriter of the previous two films James DeMonaco to direct and write the third film.
About the third "The Purge" DeMonaco said:
"I never imagined that The Purge would be the phenomenon it has become. I am thrilled that I will continue my cooperation with Blumhouse, Sebastien Lemercier, Platinum Dunes and the great Universal team making The Purge global franchise ".
To see what it holds the third place. However so far the existing movies have not impress despite their interesting idea. We remind that the first "The Purge" starring Ethan Hawke gathered 89.3 million dollars worldwide with a budget of 3 million dollars while the sequel "The Purge: Anarchy" has garnered so far more than 108 million dollars surpassing many times its budget estimated at 9 million dollars.
Not that it won't turn and the third film after such numbers …
