The Purge film franchise’s fifth installment will arrive in theaters next year, and Variety reports this week that Everardo Gout (Nat Geo’s “Mars”) will be in the director’s chair.

Franchise creator James DeMonaco will once again write the movie for Blumhouse Productions, Platinum Dunes and Universal Pictures.

At this time, the film is untitled and we don’t yet have any details, though it’s worth noting that with four films and a TV series currently under the franchise’s belt, it seems DeMonaco has his sights set on calling it a day in the near future. Possibly even with the 2020 film.

“I have [the next installment] in my head,” DeMonaco recently told EW. “I think I’m going to write it. I think it’s a great way to end it all. We want to end it all, I think, in this one, and I’m very excited. When I came up with the idea and pitched it to everybody, they seemed psyched, and I think it will be a really cool ending, how we take this one home.”

The First Purge has damn sure proven that the franchise is still incredibly profitable on the big screen, but one has to wonder how much more can possibly be milked from the concept. The fifth film promising to end the bloody experiment might be just what the franchise needs to go out with a serious bang at the box office, and put asses in the seats one more time.
