Trivia & Production Notes
- Series creator James DeMonaco revealed some ideas on a new Purge film, saying: "I would actually go back and I would try to talk about how it all started. That seems the natural next chapter in this, is to say, 'Alright, we've done this trilogy. We see how it got to this point of someone trying to end it - this presidential figure. Now let's go back and see how the fuck all this came about.' How did this country get to a place where we were now accepting this kind of atrocity, this terrible thing, each year? I think there's something interesting in that. I don't think I'll direct. I'm thinking of maybe writing or at least producing it, to make sure it stays true to what I like about the movies."
