Movie Hole broke the news today revealing that Universal Home Entertainment has big plans for the little guy, and it's ALL GOOD! Read on for all the deets.
"Curse of Chucky", which will be written, directed and produced by Chucky conceiver and recurring franchise director Don Mancini, will begin shooting the sixth installment of Child's Play in Winnipeg, Canada in September.
In this new film, which will be a direct-to-DVD release, "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."
Unlike the last couple of “Chucky” movies, while there will be humour, there’s a lot more emphasis here on making the series scary again – so this’ll be a throwback to the first three “Child’s Play” movies. (Please note that this film is entirely different than the reboot of the series which has been in development purgatory for quite some time)
Brad Dourif is, of course, back to voice the role of the killer doll. He’s lent his lungs – and briefly, face – to every “Child’s Play” thus far. Thank God for this! No one other than Brad Douriff should ever voice Chucky --PERIOD!
Main characters in the film include heroine Nica; Barb, Nica’s older sister, a manipulative, controlling cow that nags her handsome husband Ian and 5-year-old daughter Alice; and Jill, the “smokin’ hot” nanny that’s sleeping with Ian. There’s also fun supporting characters like a meddling priest, who will come face-to-cross with Chucky, and of course, the deceased woman, mother Sarah.
In closing, it should be seriously stressed (so out come the italics) -- this is a return to ‘nasty’ Chucky – the scary little son-of-a-bitch that leaves nobody standing around to get their shits and giggles as two plastic dolls play hide the plastic cabana via silhouette (in fact, the film completely skips over the last couple of sequels, essentially taking place after “Child’s Play 3″ – so there’s no Jennifer Tilly, sorry kids!). There’s a big-ass knife, and by golly, Chucky’s gonna use it – and in the most graphic of ways. There’s some very disturbing slaughter scenes planned for the flick.
I cannot express how psyched I am truly am to see this film transpire!! Please let us know your thought below.
