The Kidd here...
It was only a matter of time before new life was breathed back into the CHILD'S PLAY franchise. After the series took a more comedic turn with BRIDE OF CHUCKY and SEED OF CHUCKY, Universal is taking the popular killer doll direct to home entertainment for CURSE OF CHUCKY, which is heading into production sometime this fall.
According to Moviehole, Don Mancini, writer of all five CHILD'S PLAY films to this point and creator of the series, is returning to pen the script for this newest installment and also get back into the director's chair where he sat for SEED OF CHUCKY. Brad Dourif is also back to reprise the familiar voice of the Good Guy gone bad.
What type of story are we looking at this time out?
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 concentration is supposed to be much more horror than comedy this time around... it's just a shame that it might be wasting away on the DVD shelves upon arrival.
