The Purge: Election Year
According to indiewire, a television series based on ‘The Purge’ may be haunting our future. They reported,
“James DeMonaco’s increasingly popular — and increasingly timely — “Purge” film series now looks to be getting into the television game. Cinema Blendrecently hopped on the phone with filmmaker DeMonaco, who created the series and has written and directed all three films, to chat about the home video release of latest entry in the series, the frighteningly prescient “The Purge: Election Year,” and talk eventually turned to the possibility that DeMonaco’s series could turn to the small screen.”
And guess what? DeMonaco seems to be down for it! He’s currently working on series and even said, “Yes! Not an anthology… I guess kind of an anthology — more of an interwoven anthology. They came to me about a TV show, my idea is that you do six or seven storylines. And I would kind of intercut them, use flashbacks.” via indiewire
Anyone who went to see ‘The Purge: Election Year’ knows how powerful the political statements in the film were. The timing, at least for me, just added to the innate terror of the franchise. With television having the impact it does on society today, this series could be just as prolific as it could be terrifying. I, for one, can’t wait to see what DeMonaco has in store for us!
