The Latest from Frank Grillo on The Purge 6

During a red carpet interview for the Lights Out, Grillo revealed that “the script is done”. He further clarified that the story will primarily focus on his character, Leo Barnes. The actor is well known for his roles in The Purge: Anarchy (2014) and The Purge: Election Year (2016).

Regarding DeMonaco’s possible return to the director’s chair, Grillo stated: “It would be the last of the last of the last, it’s like the guy who keeps retiring.
