“We’re excited to be backing DeMonaco’s brilliant vision,” Block said.
“James’ The Purge horror franchise has generated more than $450 million at the worldwide film office.” he added
He went on to claim that the pairing of DeMonaco’s “masterful storytelling abilities” and Davidson’s “versatility as an actor” will “leave viewers everywhere on the edge of their seats.”
