A New ‘Chucky’ For the ‘Annabelle’ Generation!


MGM wasn’t kidding about rebooting Child’s Play without Don Mancini, the film’s writer and helmer of its six sequels, and actor Brad Dourif, the voice of Chucky. The studio has announced sexy funny-girl Aubrey Plaza (Ingrid Goes West) as its star and tapped Lars Klevberg (Polaroid) to direct.

Most intriguing, however, is the first image revealed of Good Guy doll-gone-bad Chucky, now rumored to be a hacked AI programmed doll run amok (think homicidal Hello Barbie). It looks all right and the revamped story line sounds cool. It could all very well appeal to a new generation of fright fan raised on Annabelles.

But, if you prefer classic Chucky, don’t fret. Universal will continue to release the Don Mancini/Brad Dourif home edition sequels, which continue to get more outrageous and fun, and a ten-episode TV series.
