Ethan Hawke reteams with his Little New York helmer James DeMonaco for Universal‘s The Purge. The thriller is set in an America wracked by crime and overcrowded prisons where the government has sanctioned an annual 12-hour period in which any and all criminal activity becomes legal. When an intruder breaks into the home of James (Hawke) and Mary (Lena Headey) during the yearly lockdown, it threatens to turn their family into the monsters they’re trying to stop. Produced by Jason Blum of Blumhouse, Platinum Dunes’ Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, and Sébastien Kurt Lemercier, the pic opens May 31.
