Universal developing The Purge 2

Jun 11 2013, 5:07am CDT | by

Universal is developing a sequel to 'The Purge'.

The Ethan Hawke-starring horror film was a surprise hit at the US box office this past weekend, topping the chart with $36.4 million in ticket sales, and now the movie studio are hoping to capitalise on the flick's success with a follow-up.

Producer Jason Blum confirmed the news on Twitter, writing: ''The Purge 2 is in development @UniversalHorror #ThePurge (sic)''

'The Purge', which was produced on a modest $3 million budget, proved to be highly profitable in its opening weekend and fended off strong competition from big budget blockbusters such as 'Fast & Furious 6' and Will Smith's 'After Earth'.

The futuristic horror flick is set in the US, where, for one night a year, all crime - including murder - is legal. The film centres on Ethan Hawke's James Sandin and his wife Mary, played by 'Game of Thrones' actress Lena Headey, who try to protect their family from home invaders during the annual purge.

The low-budget film was produced by Universal, Blum's Blumhouse Productions and 'Transformers' director Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes company.

Blum is also known for producing recent horror success stories including the 'Paranormal Activity' franchise, 'Insidious' and 'Sinister', which also starred Hawke.

Rumor: Ewan McGregor Could Be DOCTOR STRANGE

Oct 14 2014 5:55pm CDT | Source: Collider

Ah, the casting saga of Doctor Strange continues.  I'm sure whoever director Scott Derrickson casts in the role will be great, but it's interesting to see the wide breadth of names being mentioned for the part.  Derrickson and Marvel had been dancing with Joaquin Phoenix for a while before he dropped out and a lot of the subsequent online fan casting has mentioned names like Keanu Reeves and Ethan Hawke. ...

Back to the drawing board. Marvel Studios has been working to sign a deal with Joaquin Phoenix to put the actor in costume as Doctor Strange, but those talks have now ended with no deal made. We first started to hear rumblings of that casting choice over the summer, and there was a point where it seemed like Marvel might even be able to announce Phoenix as Strange at Comic Con. But that never happened, and now months later t ...
