Frank Grillo recently dropped some news on the direction of James DeMonaco‘s The Purge 3 (2016). Universal is scheduled to release The Purge 3 on July 1, 2016, with filming set to start this September 2015. Frank Grillo returns as Sergeant Leo Barnes and said that this time around, there is a bigger focus on Sergeant Leo Barnes’ backstory. Read the Frank Grillo quote below and tell us in the comments how excited you are for the next Purge movie.
You get to see where he came from, his origin, how this has affected him, and what he does to make some changes about it. He was involved in law enforcement at a high level, and he gets involved with somebody else who’s also politically charged, and they go after the system. It’s really interesting. It’s like a really good old school B-movie, like Death Wish, or one of those Clint Eastwood westerns. It’s that kind of thing.
