I’ve never been a fan of the Child’s Play films, although I some what liked the original film, but that was about it. Sadly over the years, Chucky became a novelty act of sorts, discarding the horror with jokes and too much comedy. But what if they went back to their roots and made Chucky scary again?
Well, Movie Hole has exclusively learned that Universal Home Entertainment will be unleashing a brand new Chucky flick which is entitled the Curse of Chucky, which is scheduled to begin filming this September in Winnipeg, Canada.
Also the new film is ignoring the comedy aspects of the most recent Chucky films, instead returning to a time when Chucky was somewhat scary instead of the campy style it became.
The new film is being made for DVD which will see Don Mancini write, produce and direct. Brad Dourif is also said to return as the voice of the killer doll, Chucky.
In the new film, “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.”
The site reports that the main characters include the 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.”
If you’re also wondering what’s going on with the remake, well, it isn’t dead, yet, so who knows, maybe it will surface after this sequel.
