Expanding the universe introduced in the hit franchise that electrified the culture and earned $200 million at the worldwide box office, Universal Pictures' The Purge: Election Year reveals the next terrifying chapter that occurs over 12 hours of annual lawlessness sanctioned by the New Founders of America to keep this country great. The first trailer has dropped for this latest chapter in the saga. And it looks like another blockbuster smash hit for Universal and Blumhouse.
It's been two years since Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo) stopped himself from a regrettable act of revenge on Purge Night. Now serving as head of security for Senator Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell), his mission is to protect her in a run for president and survive the annual ritual that targets the poor and innocent. But when a betrayal forces them onto the streets of D.C. on the one night when no help is available, they must stay alive until dawn...or both be sacrificed for their sins against the state.Read More

Back in October, Universal Pictures announced that The Purge 3 is happening, with the studio setting a July 1, 2016 release date for the horror sequel just a few months later. Today, Variety reports that The Purge: Anarchy star Frank Grillo is in final negotiations to reprise his role as Sergeant in The Purge 3. It isn't clear if other stars from The Purge: Anarchy will be back as well.
No story details for The Purge 3 have been given yet, but back in January, producer Jason Blum shot down a rumor that this sequel will be a prequel, set during the very first Purge and delving into this chaotic day's origins. 2013's The Purge and last year's sequel The Purge: Anarchy center on one day out of the year where, for 12 straight hours, all crime is legal, including murder. In The Purge: Anarchy, Frank Grillo portrayed a character only known as Sergeant, who goes on a revenge mission during the Purge, although he gets sidetracked when he comes across a group of people who need protection.Read More
It isn't terribly surprising that Frank Grillo has already wrapped on Captain America: Civil War, given the massive nature of the ensemble cast. Almost all of the main cast from Avengers: Age of Ultron will be back, including Chris Evans (Captain America), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Anthony Mackie (The Falcon), Paul Bettany (Vision), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Don Cheadle (War Machine) and Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), along with Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Daniel Brühl (Baron Zemo) and Martin Freeman in an unspecified role. It is also widely believed that the new Spider-Man will make an appearance, but that has yet to be confirmed.
As it turns out, there isn't much downtime for the actor, as he revealed on Twitter yesterday that he is about to start production on the second season of his DirecTV series Kingdom. It isn't known how long the Captain America: Civil War shoot will last for, but we'll keep you posted as soon as more updates are available. In the meantime, take a look at Frank Grillo's tweets and Instagram post below.

Akiva Goldsman is directing from a screenplay by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski, which landed on the Blood List in 2012 as one of the top unproduced horror screenplays. Jason Blum and Matthew Kaplan will produce alongside Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Adrienne Biddle, with Nate Matteson, Eric Robinson and Bryan Bertino serving as executive producers. No production schedule was given at this time.
Frank Grillo most recently starred in The Purge: Anarchy and as Brock Rumlow, a.k.a. Crossbones in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, a role he will reprise in next year's Captain America: Civil War. He also stars in the DirecTV series Kingdom, which was recently renewed for a second season.Read More
