Recently, we here at AndyErupts talked a little about the long-gestating Child’s Play reboot.
Word is that series creator Don Mancini was gearing up the reboot with a view to injecting some darkness back into the franchise and, indeed, back into the lead character of Charles “Chucky” Lee Ray, everyone’s favourite pint-sized plastic serial killer.
Now, Moviehole have reported that the reboot, if it’s still happening at all, will have to wait while Mancini ploughs ahead with the sixth installment in the series to be called, “Curse of Chucky”, which will be written, directed and produced by Mancini.
The synopsis is as follows,
Chucky arrives to wreck havoc within a family that’s regrouped for a funeral. In the wake of her mother’s passing, a young woman – in a wheelchair since birth – is forced to put up with her sister, brother-in-law, niece and their nanny as they say their goodbyes to mother. When people start turning up dead, the fearless Nica discovers the culprit might be a “strange doll” she was sent a couple of days earlier.
Brad Dourif, thankfully, will return as the voice of Chucky while the film will be darker and more focused on horror than the comedy of Bride of Chucky and Seed of Chucky.
Curse of Chucky begins shooting in Winnipeg, Canada in September.
More as it comes…
