CHILD'S PLAY Reboot and Spinoff In The Works!
Chucky may be headed back to the big screen! Moviehole reports that there are two Child's Play projects in the works, a remake and a spin-off. The news was revealed during a panel at The Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, North Carolina. The horror and sci-fi convention had a Child's Play reunion panel.
The spin-off project is called Revenge of Chucky, and would involve Chucky’s immediate family. The panel featured Alex Vincent, Brad Dourif and Chris Sarandon. During the panel, Dourif confirmed that "he’s involved in both projects but has not seen a script for the remake yet."
There has been talk of a remake/reboot for several years by Don Mancini and David Kirschner. It will be written and directed by Mancini, and is planned as "a darker and scarier retelling of the original film, but one that will offer new twists and turns."
