THE PURGE 2 Heading Our Way – Say Hello To THE ZONE

THE PURGE didn’t hang around in theaters long but while it was there it raked in the dough so of course you know what that means! A sequel!

Several sources are reporting that THE PURGE 2 is a go and it will be titled THE ZONE.

From Variety:

The Purge” was Blumhouse’s first production under its first-look deal with Universal. The sci-fi thriller, starring Ethan Hawke and Lena Headley, was a major success with $87 million this year in global box office after being produced on a budget of $3 million.

Universal came on to “Purge 2″ following the opening weekend success of “The Purge,” which dominated the box office with a stunning $34 million.

Blumhouse is also in line to receive a $2.25 million tax credit from the state of California for “The Purge 2,″ which was one of 31 projects that received a conditional approval on June 3 for California’s Film and Television Tax Credit program.

And via the Production Weekly twitter feed:

“THE PURGE team of Jason Blum, Michael Bay and writer/director James DeMonaco reunite for Universal’s THE ZONE, filming begins mid-Dec. in LA.”

THE PURGE recently made it’s Blu-ray debut and now with a mid-December fire up on the sequel it would appear that we will be talking about this one a lot in the coming months.
