Frank Grillo has become a staple of The Purge franchise. The first Purge movie left a lot to be desired, The Purge: Anarchy was pretty friggin’ awesome, and Election Year was just okay. Still, with each entry the films have made more and more cash, so you know a fourth one will be here soon enough, but will Grillo (who starred in 2 and 3) be back for another round?
Collider recently caught up with Grillo, who had this to say…
“It is what it is, but it’s great. It’s fun. After Anarchy, Universal called me and said, ‘You’ve got a franchise. We’re gonna continue with this if you wanna do this.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, this is great!’ And so, when Election Year was even more successful, they were like, ‘Let’s keep doing this!’ I was like, ‘Maybe. I think I might be done, but you should keep doing it!’ But I love it! [James] DeMonaco, who wrote and directed all of them, reminds me a lot of [‘Kingdom’ creator/showrunner] Byron [Balasco], in the sense that he so understands the world he’s created that you just follow him. For an actor, that’s fun.”
I guess we’ll see!
