Following the success of its second annual Purge with The Purge: Anarchy, Universal and Blumhouse are getting going with The Purge 3.

Deadline reports that the third instalment (which will presumably get a snappier title) will once again come from writer-director James DeMonaco, who was responsible for both previous films set in the near future where all crime is legal for one night a year.

Nothing is known about the film as yet. The first was a fairly straightforward home invasion movie, in which Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey had to defend their family from those Purgers, while the second saw Frank Grillo lead a group of stranded innocents across the city in an attempt to survive the night.

Deadline notes that the two films had a combined budget of just $12 million, and have grossed $200 million worldwide. Small wonder Universal are keen to continue their relationship with Blumhouse and DeMonaco.
