Even though the story was more or less wrapped up at the end of The Purge: Election Year, we should probably get used to these movies, much like the Purge itself, happening about once a year. James DeMonaco, creator of the franchise and director of all three, will be back writing the screenplay and working closely with Universal to find a director for the fourth.

Things were a bit…explosive…the last time we saw Frank Grillo’s Crossbones in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but as even the most casual movie and TV genre fan can tell you, a character is never really dead until you’ve seen the body (and even then…) — all of which is to say that there was still a possibility that we’d see Grillo pop up in the MCU again. According to Grillo, he’s officially done with Crossbones, and he might also be bowing out from his other major franchise, too.

On the surface, The Purge would seem like a fairly singular theatrical event. The concept of one carnage-filled night a year works wonders in two-hour stretches, but would anyone ever be crazy enough try it as serialized TV? We might find out, as director James DeMonaco is reportedly developing an “interwoven anthology” series around The Purge franchise.

This summer's 'The Purge: Anarchy' bucked just about every horror sequel trend imaginable. It was not only bigger and better than the 2013 original, it made more money. With a worldwide gross of $110 million on a budget of less than $10 million, there was never a moment of doubt that Universal, Blumhouse productions and writer/director James DeMonaco would pull a part three together. And here we are: 'The Purge 3' is now being developed.

James DeMonaco is well aware of your complaints. Yes, the first installment of 'The Purge' (which DeMonaco directed) was a box office behemoth, grossing just under $90 million on a budget of only $3 million. 'The Purge' should have been a feel-good success story ... and then those Cinemascores came rolling in and, as it turns out, the audience that showed up to see 'The Purge" wound up kind of despising 'The Purge.'

Though the film had a perfect formula applicable to various side stories, details on where the story would take us next proved scarce. Fortunately, one of the new stars has opened up and revealed our first tidbits on the next annual Purge.
