Cult of Chucky Films Next Month
Hey Horror Fans, LA here with a killer bit of news.The new Child’s Play film starts shooting next week and will be called Cult of Chucky. The film is the seventh entry in the horror franchise which began with 1988’s Child’s Play, which saw a Good Guy doll become possessed by a psychotic serial killer. Original Child’s Play writer/director Don Mancini is back in the big chair and he’s bringing back both Brad Dourif (The Voice of Chucky) and the original toy loving Andy (before Toy Story) Alex Vince, who we briefly saw in an after credit sequence of Curse of Chucky. Jennifer Tilly is also returning along side Dourif’s daughter Fiona, who will also reprise her role from curse.
EW broke the news alongside a cool video that the filmmaking team and Universal prepared for this big announcement.
Cult of Chucky will catch up with the younger Dourif’s character at an asylum for the criminally insane where she has been confined for the past four years and is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when Nica’s psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic “tool” to facilitate his patients’ group sessions — an all-too-familiar “Good Guy” doll with an innocently smiling face — a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Vincent), Chucky’s now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child’s Play, races to Nica’s aid. But to save her he’ll have to get past Tiffany (Tilly), Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.
“he won’t stop until he gets his revenge”
“It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly 30 years since Chucky first terrified moviegoers in Child’s Play,” said Glenn Ross, General Manager and Executive Vice President, Universal 1440 Entertainment. “Since then the films have generated millions in worldwide box-office revenue. Now Chucky’s back with more scores to settle in his trademark twisted style, and you can bet he won’t stop until he gets his revenge.”
Principal photography starts on Jan. 9. in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, with David Kirschner and Ogden Gavanski producing.
Im super excited to see Andy and Chucky once again going head to head, as it’s a relationship (albeit a bad one) that has been sadly missing from the recent sequels. You can watch the teaser video for Cult of Chucky below.
