In the pantheon of evil doll movies, one name stands above all others: Chucky. The homicidal amalgam of Charles Manson and a Cabbage Patch Kid has wreaked havoc in a five film franchise whose last entry, "Seed of Chucky," dropped waaaaaaay back in 2004.
Those who miss their cuddly killer companion need not fear, because Moviehole confirms from the reunion panel at genre convention The Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, North Carolina that there will not only be a long-mooted remake of "Child's Play," but also another sequel. That's two Chucky's for the price of one!
The iconic voice of Chucky, Brad Dourif ("Lord of the Rings"), confirmed that he's involved in both projects. Said sequel, titled "Revenge of Chucky," will involve the "Good Guy" doll inhabited by the spirit of serial killer Charles Lee Ray and his "family" exacting some form of bloody vengeance, most likely framing an unsuspecting innocent in the process. "It wasn't me… it was the doll!"
Meanwhile, original creators Don Mancini and David Kirschner are cooking up a remake that will stray from the more satiric leanings of recent sequels - the last one featured John Waters, after all – and go for "a darker and scarier retelling of the original film, but one that will offer new twists and turns."
We're friends 'til the end, remember?
