The Purge 6 Is In The Works With Frank Grillo!
Frank Grillo has confirmed to reprise his role as Sgt. Leo Barnes, which appears in the first sequel The Purge: Anarchy. The actor later reprised the role for The Purge: Election Year. Continue on for more about The Purge 6 starring Frank Grillo…
CelebnMovies247.com reports that The Purge 6 is already in the works with fan-favorite Frank Grillo.
Recently, Grillo spoke about the current state of The Purge franchise on The Playlist Podcast. He revealed that The Purge 6 is already in active development, and he’s waiting to receive the screenplay from The Purge creator James DeMonaco.
Grillo was first introduced as a man ready to seek revenge but quickly found his calling as a hero.
In the third film, we find Frank as the head of security in an effort to take down the new founding fathers. Once again he becomes the hero.
Frank Grillo reveals DeMonaco will return to direct the Purge 6, after handing the keys over to other directors for the past two installments. The actor also suggests that Leo will be the central character this time around.
Here is what The “Boss Level” star said in his interview:
Committed! We committed to doing that- Purge 6 with [James DeMonaco] directing. It’s based on the Leo Barnes character. I’m excited. He’s going to send me the script. He just finished it. So, yeah, I’m really psyched about that. I love doing the Purge movies…I’m psyched, they called me and said James wanted to direct one more and I’m like, ‘Don’t even tell me. I’m in.’
Grillo’s confirmation is in line with James DeMonaco.
He previously shared the news that a sixth Purge movie is on the way. Back in July, DeMonaco said in an interview with Slash Film he had a concept in mind for another story that would be all about Frank Grillo’s character.
Dude, my Purge 6 idea is all about Frank. It’s all about the Leo character. Without giving anything away, I think he’s off on his own, but he’s going to be called back into action, hopefully on Purge 6, if we’re lucky enough to do it. I hope that Leo comes back. That’s the goal. When I came up with Purge 6, he was the center of the idea. I’m hoping that we get to do that with him.
This year saw the release of the fifth installment, The Forever Purge, which was intended to cap off the movie series. The movie could have effectively served as the final installment, though there is still a lot of stories left to tell with Leo Barnes.
Frank Grillo and James DeMonaco are ready to tell another story.
