The fourth film in The Purge franchise will be a prequel taking a look at events leading up to The Purge Night being created and accepted by the United States.

James DeMonaco has returned to write the script for the fourth film with Gerard McMurray directing the film.

The film series follows the premise of:
QUOTE
In 2014, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA), a totalitarian political party portraying themselves as successors to the Founding Fathers of the United States, are voted into office following an economic collapse and pass the 28th Amendment which sanctions an annual national civic tradition called "The Purge," the first of which takes place in 2017. The Purge occurs for 12 hours, from 7 p.m. March 21 to 7 a.m. March 22, during which all crime is legal and all police, fire, and medical emergency services remain unavailable. Restrictions prohibit government officials "ranking 10" from being disturbed, as well as the use of all weapons above Class 4 (explosive devices such as grenades, rocket launchers, and bazookas). Violation of Purge rules results in a summary execution by hanging. The Purge has resulted in unemployment rates plummeting to 1%, low crime, and a strong economy.


Each film so far has portrayed different characters and stories involved in the run up to and during "Purge Night". The first film (The Purge), set in 2022, details a family's battle with taking in a stranger being targeted and the resulting outcome from their neighbours and local population. The second film (Anarchy), set a year later in 2023, takes the story onto the streets with a group of people brought together on the night, a look at the impoverished being targeted and those that are fighting against The Purge. The third film (Election Year) details a U.S. Senator's story for presidency in 2040 in an attempt to abolish The Purge from continuing.

All 3 films have received mixed reviews so far but each successive film has grossed more at the box office each time, making it one of the most successful low-budget franchises.

More details released today:

QUOTE
Purge: The Island will be a prequel focusing on the first ever national murderfest, which takes place on Staten Island, New York.

"I said it's the first experimental Purge, which I don't know if I was supposed to say, but now I've said it, so you have it", DeMonaco revealed to Vulture.

He explained: "What they do is start promising very decent sums of money for the very poor people in the neighborhood. It becomes a monetization of murder and violence, incentivizing killing and keeping people around for them to be victims.

"So you see the inception of how grotesque the idea of the Purge is, and the manipulation upon the society."

The film will also feature a "hero" for the first time, inspired by Clint Eastwood in Unforgiven.

"This is one man's journey, William… [a]modern kind of badass who redeems himself through the story" explained DeMonaco.
