Last year, franchise creator James DeMonaco (writer / director of The Purge, The Purge: Anarchy and The Purge: Election Year) revealed that he plans to make the fifth film in the series the last. Talking to EWDeMonaco said the 12-hour annual lawless riot in the United States will end.
"I think it's a great way to end it. I think we want to end it, and I'm very excited. When I came up with the idea and showed it to everyone, they seemed excited, and I think it will be a really nice ending, as we will take this home. ”
The film will be produced by Jason Blum, DeMonaco and Sébastien K. Lemercier of the duo Man In A Tree, and Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form.
