If you are seeing lights, camera and action near Clinton and Gorski inside the Marcus Garvey Community Center in Buffalo get ready for... 'THE PURGE'.

Just in time for the Halloween season this Sci Fi thriller will be the fourth installment of the popular franchise and will act as the prequel to the previous three tentatively called: The Purge: Island. The franchise is set in a Sci-Fi America where people are allowed to commit virtually any crime on a designated night of the year without legal ramifications.


Industry leaders say this could be the biggest movie Buffalo has seen yet. Cast and crew will be here through November shooting the movie. Those in the industry say this could make more Hollywood noise than when Marshall was filmed here last year.The purge will employ hundreds of people, hundreds of extras and hundreds of vendors right here in the Western New York area.

Entertainment Weekly is reporting the movie should be released on July 4, 2018.
