While writing the scripts for “The Purge” TV series, James DeMonaco also gathered ideas for a new movie. A fifth part is different and misses a line in the series.
When writing the TV series for the franchise, James DeMonaco also had new ideas for the film series, which he really wants to end with Part 5.
Universal announces the late release in theaters for the fifth Purge film.
“The Purge 5” had a theatrical release for the USA: it could have been from July 10th, 2020, or then on July 9th, 2021. Hopefully, it will really be August 12th, 2021.
The fourth film was a prequel (“The First Purge” grossed a good 137 million dollars in the summer of 2018), but the final purge is again a sequel.
The FSK has not yet been determined, should be either from 16 or from 18 years. Probably more likely from 16 years of age.
The first trailer of “The Forever Purge”
First picture published for the final purge film.
The last film is supposed to accompany the two main characters Adela (Ana de la Reguera) and Juan (Tenoch Huerta) as they flee from a drug cartel from Mexico and find refuge on a ranch in Texas. They are troubled by a group of outsiders for whom the purge night lasts forever and lust for murder is the order of the day.
This doesn’t sound like a classic purge night, but the first published picture contrasts this impression with high contrast because it is strongly reminiscent of previous films. So it will be interesting to see how the above action will connect with the actual purge.
Director is certain: Everardo Gout will take on the last part
Who will be allowed to stage the new and probably last part was still in the dark. Now the name is certain: the Mexican filmmaker Everardo Gout. His work for the series “Mars”, in which he directed the episodes of the first season, was probably decisive. His other projects are even more unknown. His first and so far only feature film is ” Days Of Grace.
“The Purge 5”: A great end to the series?
He wrote all four parts of “The Purge” and staged all of them himself except for the last part. Now he wants to complete what he has started and seems to have had a very moving inspiration for it. To EW he said: “I’ve got it in my head, I think I’ll write it. I think it’s a great way to end all of this. I think we all want to end it in this film and I’m really excited. When I came up with the idea and introduced it to everyone, it looked very excited and I expect it will be a really cool ending the way we bring it home. ”
DeMonaco had been a little tired of the franchise lately, now working on the TV series seems to have given him new enthusiasm. The Night of the Purge could repeat itself for decades, of course, but missing a really good ending to the series seems a lot more attractive.
TV series discontinued after the third season.
DeMonaco was able to let off steam even further with The Purge TV series, which got a second season. And that, although critics and audience mostly reacted bored to negative and almost not at all euphoric. The ratings on Rotten Tomatoes, for example, were correspondingly average. It all looked much better with the second season, unfortunately, USA Network decided in May 2020 to cancel the series and not to produce a third season “The Purge”.
