After years of waiting, there could now be TWO Child’s Play movie’s on the horizon!

The rumours of a Child’s Play remake have been around for years, however financial “issues” at MGM have meant any mention of a new film has quickly disappeared, never to be heard from again. The last mention of a remake was a year ago, and as with many other rumours, this was also sunk without a trace, until now.

At a recent Mad Monster Party Show in North Carolina, there was a bit of a Child’s Play reunion. Alex Vincent, Chris Sarandon and Brad Dourif attended, and apparently Dourif (who voiced the murderous little bastard) teased with some new and exciting news. Website Moviehole got the scoop and relayed the following information:

“There are reportedly two Child’s Play projects in the works: a remake and a spin-off of sorts involving Chucky’s immediate family, Revenge of Chucky…Dourif confirmed that he’s involved in both projects but has not seen a script for the Child’s Play remake yet”

Now, nothing has been confirmed, and since every time this does get mentioned, it then disappears again, don’t go getting too excited. However, the word is that MGM have sorted themselves out and have started moving on quite a few new projects.

Don Mancini (writer of the original Child’s Play) and David Kirschner (producer of Child’s Play and its sequels) have been planning a reboot for several years. As reported last year, should the reboot finally go ahead, they have promised a much darker and scarier version.

More (hopefully) as it develops.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
