The CHILD'S PLAY Reboot Gets a New Poster and Release Date - "More Than a Toy... He's Your Best Friend"
Orion Pictures has released the first poster for the upcoming Child’s Play reboot that no one seems to want. The poster comes with the tagline, "More Than a Toy... He's Your Best Friend" and it’s also been announced that the movie will be released on June 21st, 2019.
The film has a decent cast with Aubrey Plaza (Ingrid Goes West) and Brian Tyree Henry but the casting isn’t enough to make me want to see the movie.
The contemporary reboot will follow a group of kids as they take on a technologically-advanced doll that enters their world. It’a also been reported that the version of Chucky in this film is "a defective 'Buddy doll' whose programming code was hacked so that he has no limitations to learning and also violence."
The movie will be directed by Lars Klevberg, who directed the upcoming horror movie Polaroid, which doesn’t look that good. As for the script, it was written by Tyler Burton Smith (Kung Fury 2). It producers David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith are producing.
This movie is completely separate from the upcoming TV series that is being developed by franchise creator Don Mancini, who will not be involved with the film reboot.
