Jason Blum says there could be a Purge movie every year

Having proved a low-budget success when it arrived in cinemas last year, The Purge has already spawned one sequel in the form of The Purge: Anarchy , which could soon be joined by several more…

Producer Jason Blum, one half of Blumhouse Productions, has been discussing the future of the franchise and clearly has big plans for The Purge going forward.

“I hope so,” says Blum, when the notion of a Purge movie every year is proposed. “I would love that. There are so many stories you could tell with it.”

Blumhouse has previous on the mass sequel front with its other franchises, Paranormal Activity and Insidious , but according to Blum, the plans for sequels only materialise after the first film is finished.

“The first movie, we never make thinking about sequels,” says Blum. “The second movie, we always think about sequels.”

“With Insidious 2 , Sinister 2 , The Purge: Anarchy and even the second Paranormal Activity , we’re establishing a franchise, so we always think about what the third movie will be. I just never think, on the first movie, about what the second movie will be.”

Directed by James DeMonaco and starring Frank Grillo, The Purge: Anarchy will open in the UK on 25 July 2014.
