The cast grows...
According to The Hollywood Reporter, four new cast members have been added to Universal and Blumhouse's The Purge 2, including Michael K. Williams (Boardwalk Empire), Carmen Ejogo (Sparkle), Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights) and Kiele Sanchez (A Perfect Getaway).
The film will arrive on June 20, 2014. Writer/director James DeMonaco will once again direct and Frank Grillo will star. Jason Blum will once again produce, along with DeMonaco, Sebastien Lemercier and Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes.
The sequel will have a similar setting to the original in which once a year there is a 12-hour period where all crime is legal.
The first film was made on a budget of $3 million and earned $34 million in its opening weekend, setting a new record for R-rated horror (which was later broken by The Conjuring). The film, which starred Ethan Hawke, went on to earn $89.3 million worldwide.
