The upcoming fifth movie in Blumhouse's The Purge franchise has found another star in Leven Rambin (True Detective, The Hunger Games), as reported by Deadline. While the specifics of her role are not yet known at this time, she will be joining previously-announced cast members Ana de la Reguera (the upcoming Army of the Dead), Tenoch Huerta (Tigers Are Not Afraid), Will Patton (2018's Halloween), and Cassidy Freeman (The Righteous Gemstones).
Details are scarce on the new sequel for the time being, but it is moving forward with a script penned by series creator James DeMonaco, who directed the first three movies in the series. It was also previously mentioned that Everardo Gout would be directing this still-untitled new movie. The filmmaker is known for his work on National Geographic's Mars and Netflix's Luke Cage.
Audiences were first introduced to the extremely violent film franchise back in 2013. Produced on a modest budget, The Purge and its three sequels have continued to rise both in popularity and at the box office. The films to date have earned more than $450 million worldwide.
Sources have also indicated that while the new movie will still focus on the familiar concept of that nightly event in which all crime is legal, it may take on a change of scenery from the usual metropolitan setting, but that information has not yet been confirmed by those directly involved with the production.
As for a release date, fans of the series can mark their calendars for July 10th, 2020. As per usual, stick around with us here on Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates ahead.
