Everardo Gout (Mars) directs the final entry from a screenplay written and co-produced by creator James DeMonaco. Josh Lucas, Ana de la Reguera, Tenoch Huerta, Leven Rambin, Will Patton, and Cassidy Freeman star.

Gout tells Total Film: “It’s an amazing story of Latinos and Americans coming together to overcome despair and evil[James DeMonaco said] I want my intentions to be crystal clear on what I think about violence and what’s going on in the world.’ That’s what he told me. It’s dystopian, but he’s trying to get us to look in the mirror. It makes you think, ‘Sh-t, if I get pushed into a corner, would I do the same?’ Once you open that door, how do you close it again?”

The movie will take place after the events of Election Year.

It will center on Adela (Ana de la Reguera) and Juan (Tenoch Huerta), who find solace at a Texan ranch, having fled a drug cartel in Mexico. Things go awry when a group of outsiders decides to keep purging beyond the allotted time.
