Whether you liked The Purge or you hated it, you must at least admit that the premise was pretty damn awesome. With a sequel headed our way, possibly titled The Zone, it’s hard not to wonder what aspect of that premise will be explored, and one of the stars has just leaked some plot details.
In an interview with Fangoria, Zach Gilford (Devil’s Due, “Friday Night Lights”) broke the exciting news that the sequel will not take place inside of a house and will not feature any of the same characters from the first film.
“With this one,” he says, “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.”
Sounds good to me!
The sequel stars Frank Grillo, Michael K. Williams, Zach Gilford, Carmen Ejogo, Jasper Cole, Zoe Borde, Chad Morgan, and Kiele Sanchez.
Look for it in theaters on Friday, June 20, 2014. Writer/director/producer James DeMonaco returns and will be joined by producers Jason Blum, Sebastien Lemercier, and Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes.
The original was set in the future as a wealthy family is held hostage for harboring the target of a murderous syndicate during the Purge, a 12-hour period in which any and all crime is legalized.
