‘Captain America’ Villain Lands Lead in ‘The Purge 2’

Another year, another Purge — and a brand new face to terrorize.

The Ethan Hawke-starring The Purge is set to spawn a sequel, set to arrive in theaters next summer. James DeMonaco, director of the first film, is back behind the lens for the follow-up, but this time, he has a new leading man: Frank Grillo, the actor playing Brock “Crossbones” Rumlow in the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

No plot details have been revealed about the Purge sequel, beyond the setting: The films take place in a near-future United States where all criminal activity is legalized once a year for a 12-hour period, an annual event known as (you guessed it) “the Purge.” Whether Grillo is a Purger or a Purgee remains to be seen, but Deadline describes him as the film’s lead.

The Purge 2 arrives on June 20, 2014.
