The team behind The Purge 2 is busy at work knowing the sequel to last year's hit is going to open June 20th. Original writer-director James DeMonaco is back and Frank Grillo is starring alongside Michael K. Williams, Zach Gilford, Carmen Ejogo and Kiele Sanchez. But what is the film about?
Blumhouse Productions usually does a good job keeping the plot of its films – like those in the Paranormal Activity – franchise under wraps. And, to date, it has yet to reveal any details regarding The Purge 2. But leave it to an actor to spill the beans.
Zach Gilford spoke to Fangoria recently about the film.
"With the sequel, I thought they had a really great way to do a sequel because the first one took place in an upscale suburb with what happens to a family there when their security system doesn’t work. With this one, there’s none of the same characters, but it’s the same day of the year and it takes place in the city where there are no security systems and it’s just like a war zone where people are just trying to survive. So I thought it was pretty interesting to take that concept and to look at it from a different angle.”
Ah, so they are going with what we sort of predicted. They're opening the canvas, seeing how "the other side" lives during The Purge. What do you think?
