“THE PURGE 3” Adds “FINAL DESTINATION”, “LOST” Vets; Grillo & Hodge to Return


While the INSIDIOUS and SINISTER franchises might be on ice (for the time being), Blumhouse still has their fair share of sequels on the way, including OUIJA 2, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE GHOST DIMENSION and THE PURGE 3, the next chapter in James DeMonaco’s dystopian horror series. Now, with the film nearing a shooting start date to make it’s July 1st, 2016 release date, THE PURGE 3 has started drafting participants for the next night of madness, including a pair of familiar faces.

With James DeMonaco back behind the camera and Platinum Dunes once again co-producing, Frank Grillo (returning from PURGE: ANARCHY) and Edwin Hodge (returning from both previous PURGE films) are back from the tentatively-titled THE PURGE 3. Joining them are new recruits Betty Gabriel (BEYOND SKYLINE), Kyle Secor (SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY), JJ Soria (DEXTER), Mykelti Williamson (THE FINAL DESTINATION) and Elizabeth Mitchell (LOST), all of whom are in roles being kept under wraps. While there’s no news if any other survivors from the previous films will show face in one form or another in PURGE 3 just yet, the clock is ticking as production approaches.
