In today’s horror world, if your film can gross $89 million worldwide on a (relatively) measly budget of $3 million, you’re bound to start hearing the world “sequel” in no time. 2013′s surprisingly entertaining horror/thriller The Purge is the most recent beneficiary of the before mentioned scenario, which turned a pretty profit for producers Michael Bay and Jason Blum. The Purge 2 was inevitably announced a few months later, with Jason DeMonaco returning as writer and director, but since the announcement, we haven’t heard much in the way of details.
While we still don’t know whether we’ll be spending another night during the now infamous Purge, we do know who will be the focus of DeMonaco’s sequel. As of today, actor Frank Grillo has been tapped to star in The Purge 2, who can most recently be seen squaring off with Jason Statham in Homefront. »

When Universal Pictures set a June 20, 2014 release date for The Purge 2 last month, we figured it wouldn't be too long before cast members were announced. Today, we have word that Frank Grillo has signed on to star.
No character details were given, and it isn't known how this sequel will follow The Purge, which has earned over $90 million worldwide from just a $3 million production budget. The original story is set in a not-so-distant future where crime has been nearly eradicated, except for one night out of the year, known as The Purge. During that 12-hour period, all crime is legal, including murder. The Purge centers on a family (Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Max Burkholder and Adelaide Kane) who tries to survive the night when their high-tech security system is breached.
Now that they've decided on a title, it seems that casting is kicking off on the upcoming Terminator reboot, now officially known as Terminator: Genesis. According to reports, Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, The Great Gatsby and the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) is in final negotiations for the role of John Connor, the leader of the Resistance.
At this point, it's unknown how big of a role John Connor will have in the reboot, with previous reports suggesting that the film will focus on Sarah Connor, with Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke said to be the front-runner to take over from Linda Hamilton (and fellow GoT star Lena Headey), but still facing some competition from Brie Larson (Short Term 12). Earlier rumours had suggested that Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) was being tapped for John Connor, while Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy), Nicholas Hoult »

Rising star Frank Grillo has taken the lead in writer/director James DeMonaco's The Purge 2, which is set to go into production shortly. DeMonaco is once again at the helm of the sequel, which follows on the massive success of this year's The Purge, which starred Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey and made a worldwide cume of $90 million from a $3 million budget. So, yeah, not rocket science in seeing there would be a sequel there. Grillo has been slowly on the rise with some outstanding »

Maisie Williams' new nose ring is going to look a bit out of place in Westeros.
The woman behind "Game of Thrones'" Arya Stark debuted her new facial piercing on her Vine account. "And I got my nose pierced," she said before showcasing the stud on the right side of her nose.
Williams won't be the only "Game of Thrones" star who needs to cover up her body modification. Lena Headey, the woman behind Cersei Lannister, has a whole slew of tattoos over her body. Of course, Cersei is always pretty covered up, while Williams' adorable mug is frequently front and center as Arya.
What do you think of her new piercing? »

"Terminator" will be back ... on television.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the producers of the upcoming fifth film are working to return the franchise to the small screen four years after the end of Fox's "The Sarah Conner Chronicles." The new series, headed by "Thor" and "X-Men: First Class" writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller, will go hand-in-hand with the movie reboot.
The television series will jump off of a critical moment in the original 1984 "Terminator" movie. Then, as the trilogy reboot and the show progress, they'll intersect "in surprising and dramatic ways."
After languishing in limbo for some time, the movie reboot of "Terminator" is finally starting to heat up, with a slated July 2015 release. As we reported earlier, "Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke and "21 Jump Street" actress Brie Larson are rumored to be on the short list to play Sarah Conner.

"Babel" and "Amores Perros" director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has entered discussions to helm a new live-action adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's classic India-set 1894 short-story collection "The Jungle Book" at Warner Bros. Pictures.
The majority of the tales focus on Mowgli, a young boy raised by wolves whose friends include a bear named Baloo and a panther by the name of Bagheera. They also encounter a tiger adversary named Shere Khan.
Kipling's work is in the public domain, thus allowing multiple adaptations to be considered. Inarritu's will likely skew more adult and darker. »
