Child’s Play Remake: First Details on New Killer Doll Revealed

We're getting a Child's Play TV series from Don Mancini and David Kirschner

Child’s Play remake offers some details on its new Chucky

ComicBook.com reports that the upcoming Child’s Play remake from MGM and director Lars Klevberg (Polaroid) will complete re-do the killer doll’s origin. The new version of the killer doll won’t be a doll possessed by a serial killer, but will be “A defective ‘Buddy doll’ whose programming code was hacked so that he has no limitations to learning and also violence.”

In the original Child’s Play movie series created by Don Mancini, Brad Dourif played a serial killer who used voodoo to place his spirit in a ‘Good Guy Doll,’ which would become the Chucky we all know and love. Though Mancini and producer David Kirschner are currently working on making more Child’s Play movies, as well as a TV series, with Dourif still voicing Chucky, this new take on Child’s Play by MGM will essentially be a competing property, and Mancini and company will not be involved at all. So, it’s essential that MGM separated their Chucky from the one audiences have known since the late 1980s.

The Child’s Play series has been running for 30 years, with the first film dropping in 1988 to box office success, generally positive reviews and a cult following, spawning six sequels that remained box office successes but slowly started earning more mixed and negative reviews, until the revitalized Curse of Chucky, which returned to the franchise’s horror roots and earned very positive reviews. The most recent installment, Cult of Chucky, was released on Blu-ray and video on demand last October and received strong reviews from critics. Brad Dourif has been a staple of the franchise since its inception, lending his voice to the murderous doll in all of the films.

The new Child’s Play will start shooting sometime next month.
