Child’s Play Remake Finally Moves Forward at MGM

MGM is finally in a position to bring Chucky back to life, with the horror reboot Child’s Play heading into production. Child’s Play first hit theaters in 1988, spawning the sequels Child’s Play 2, Child’s Play 3, Bride Of Chucky, and Seed of Chucky.

The remake had been in development for several years, with a script already written by Don Mancini, who also wrote all the previous movies in the Chucky franchise. The hold-up on the remake was apparently due to rights issues by MGM and Universal. MGM has the rights to the original Child’s Play, while Universal retained rights to the sequels. Apparently, a deal has been made between the two studios.

Production is said to begin on the remake sometime later this year, with Brad Dourif returning to voice Chucky. This new project is said to be more of a reboot, with a darker tone and less comedic elements (what’s more funny than a Cabbage Patch doll trying to kill a kid, though?). However, none of this has been confirmed at this time.
