EXCLUSIVE: Betty Gabriel, Edwin Hodge, Kyle Secor, JJ Soria, Mykelti Williamson and Elizabeth Mitchell have joined the cast of Universal/Blumhouse’s The Purge 3, the latest installment in the microbudget horror series that has been minting money for all parties. The third pic will reveal the next chapter of the 12 hours of government-sanctioned anarchy in which murder is legal and nobody can help you if you’re stuck outside. Writer-director James DeMonaco is back for a third go-round, and Frank Grillo already is set to return to star.
Universal has set a July 1 release date, and the movie is near a shooting start in Rhode Island.
The first two Purge films had a combined budget of $12 million and together have grossed $200 million worldwide, sealing a deal for a third pic back in October after the second one, The Purge: Anarchy, surpassed the original film’s $91 million worldwide gross on its way to $110 million. Sébastien K. Lemercier, Blumhouse Productions’ Jason Blum and Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form are producing again. This is part of Blumhouse’s big first-look deal at Uni.
No character descriptions were gleaned.
Gabriel (Experimenter) is next up opposite Grillo and Bojana Novakovic in the feature Beyond Skyline and is repped by Greene & Associates and Generate, Hodge (Chicago Fire) is repped by Pakula/King & Associates and The Priluck Company, Soria (American Crime) is repped by Pakula/King and David Dean Management, Secor (Resurrection) is repped by Gersh and Brillstein Entertainment, Mitchell (Lost) is repped by Paradigm and LINK Entertainment, and Williamson (Justified) is repped by Paradigm.
Lifetime’s movie about the Casey Anthony trial has added a couple of familiar names to its cast — along with one lesser-known actress playing Anthony herself.
Canadian actress Holly Deveaux will play Anthony in “Prosecuting Casey Anthony,” the Orlando Sentinel reports. The movie is based on Anthony prosecutor Jeff Ashton’s book “Imperfect Justice” and will star Rob Lowe as Ashton.
Elizabeth Mitchell (“Lost,” “V”) and Oscar Nunez (“The Office”) have also signed on to the project, which begins filming next week and will air later in the year. Mitchell will play Linda Burdick, Ashton’s fellow prosecutor, and Nunez will play defense attorney Jose Baez, who helped win his client’s acquittal on the charge of murdering her daughter Caylee. (Casey Anthony was convicted of four counts of giving false statements to police.)
Deveaux starred in the Canadian comedy “Baxter” and has guest-starred on episodes of “Lost Girl,” “Haven” and “Breakout Kings.” She also had a role in TNT’s movie “Silent Witness” last year.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I know I did. Now on to the pictures that I mentioned. For today I bring a really good update! I’ve added a whole bunch of screencaptures of the Santa Clause 3 DVD and it’s extras. Elizabeth was in them a lot! Expect clips from it soon!
So today I finally updated the gallery with screencaps from Elizabeth’s short part in Running Scared. I have to save, this has to be one of my favorite Elizabeth films. She was amazing in this movie and her character was creepy good! Shows a different character for her to take on but she did an amazing job with it. Also I’m going to try and order all issues of Lost magazine with Elizabeth in them. If you have any scans and would like to donate to the site, use the contact form and let me know. Sorry for the quiet mood here. News has been slow but it was good reading that Elizabeth did get the chance to do a project but she said no. To me thats still good news and gives us hope for more stuff in the future! She is busy filming Lost now! Can’t wait for season 4 🙂
I’ve been doing good with the updates here lately lol. Today a big update for everyone, large screencaps from the movie Man and Boy so go check them out! Elizabeth looks amazing in the movie as always and gave a great performance! Enjoy.
