Frank Grillo to Topline The Purge 2


Frank Grillo is set to return to the thriller genre. Deadline reports that the The Grey star is set to headline next year’s The Purge 2.

The original The Purge was released earlier this year and stars Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey. Produced for just $3 million, the thriller went on to earn more than $87 million worldwide.

Grillo can be seen in theaters April 4, 2014, starring as Crossbones in Marvel Studios’ Captain America: The Winter Soldier. He’s also set to star in a James Wan-produced supernatural film that has yet to receive a title.

The Purge 2 is set to hit theaters June 20, 2014. The entire team behind the camera is back and James DeMonaco will write and direct. Blumhouse Productions and Platinum Dunes will produce.

Plot details are, at the moment, being kept under wraps.
