I would like to say that Child’s Play 7 had been confirmed, but sadly it hasn’t, and all we have is director Don Mancini taking to Twitter to sort of announce a seventh Chucky film.
Curse of Chucky (review), the sixth film in the popular Chucky franchise, was a blast, and horror fans loved it. It went down an absolute treat at Frightfest, and horror fans were treated with some cool old school horror with a slightly modern twist. Needless to say, Curse of Chucky was one of the best horror films of the year, and news that a seventh film just might be on the way is very welcome indeed!
Don Mancini, writer of all the Chucky films and director of the last four, announced on Twitter that a seventh film is on the way. Here is his rather exciting Tweet:
To the fans who’ve asked questions about Alice and the end of #CurseofChucky: All will be answered in part 7!

That’s all the director had to say,so hopefully there will be some sort of official confirmation soon. But hell, this is really exciting news!
Curse of Chucky stars Fiona Dourif (The Master, “True Blood,” “Deadwood”), A Martinez (“Longmire,” “General Hospital”), Danielle Bisutti (Get Smart, “CSI: Miami”) and Brennan Elliott (Flight 93, Double Jeopardy). Brad Dourif (The Lord of the Rings, Dune) once again returns to provide the voice of Chucky, the pint-sized doll possessed by the spirit of notorious serial killer Charles Lee Ray, who returns to settle some unfinished business.
The film is directed by Don Mancini, the Child’s Play franchise creator who has written or co-written each of the previous movies and was the director of Seed of Chucky. Also an integral part of the Child’s Playfranchise from inception, David Kirschner (An American Tail, Hocus Pocus, Bride of Chucky) produces from a screenplay by Mancini. The film’s top-flight production team includes special-effects wizard Tony Gardner (Zombieland, Seed of Chucky), production designer Craig Sandells (Mother’s Day) and costume designer Patricia J. Henderson (ATM).
Nica (Fiona Dourif) is grieving over the gruesome suicide of her mother when her domineering older sister Barb (Danielle Bisutti) arrives with her young family in tow to help settle their mother’s affairs. As the sisters butt heads over Nica’s plans for the future, Barb’s young daughter comforts herself with a grinning, red-haired talking doll named Chucky (voiced again by Brad Dourif) that recently arrived mysteriously in the mail. But as a string of brutal murders begins to terrorize the household, Nica suspects the doll may hold the key to the bloodshed. What she doesn’t know is that Chucky has a personal score to settle. He’s determined to finish a job he started more than 20 years earlier, and this time he’s going to see it through to the bloody and shocking end.
