The fifth installment of The Purge film franchise has received a release date of July 10, 2020.
The film series takes place in a world where citizens are free to commit crimes for a twelve-hour period. The most recent Purge film, 2018's The First Purge, served as an origin story for the annual eponymous event. While most of the films in the series have been met with mixed reviews, the four installments collectively made $456 million worldwide.
Series creator James DeMonaco will be writing the fifth film, with Blumhouse and Platinum Dunes producing. DeMonaco has written all four of the previous Purge films and directed the first three. However, according to DeMonaco, the fifth film could be the last in the series.
The first Purge film premiered in 2013 and starred Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Adelaide Kane and Max Burkholder. A TV series based on the film franchise premiered on USA Network in September 2018. The show was renewed for a second season in November, with DeMonaco serving as an executive producer and writer.
The fifth Purge film doesn't currently have a title or director. It will share its release date with Sony’s new Ghostbusters film directed by Jason Reitman.
