Universal has announced they have dated the still untitled fourth film in The Purge franchise for July 4, 2018. The Purge films are a no-brainer for the studio as every previous film has made a huge margin over its production costs. Along with Universal, Blumhouse and Platinum Dunes will help fund the film.
Franchise creator James DeMonaco is writing the new pic but has no plans to direct; he performed both duties on the previous movies. He will help the producers find another director for the fourth installment, right now known as the untitled Next Purge Chapter. The plot and concept of the new pic are under wraps.
Blumhouse Productions’ Jason Blum returns to produce alongside Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form and DeMonaco’s longtime production partner Sébastien K. Lemercier.
