In a recent chat with producer David Kirshner, Shock Till You Drop discovered that plans are under way to bring Chucky back to the big screen. But… before you get excited, it’ll be a remake of his first outing, the original 1988 film directed by Tom Holland. Why? Thank Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN. You know that one of these days, we’re going to have to report on the re-imagining of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, because sadly… at this rate, it’s coming! Read on for a few quotes on details about the remake and the new Special Edition DVD, as well as a link to the original full article on Shock.
"We’re discussing it with Don Mancini, who has written all of them with us from the beginning," Kirschner tells Shock. "The next one we’re going to do is we’re going back and remaking the first one and even pushing it further and making a very terrifying version of the first one, which is pretty scary as it is."
He also mentioned an upcoming Special Edition DVD of the original CHILD’S PLAY for early 2008. "We just did the commentary on the 20th Anniversary of it, and all the stars, the little kid Andy Barkley, all of that, so that’s coming out in January/February." Surprisingly no mention of Tom Holland‘s involvement for the DVD, the director responsible for introducing us all to Chucky. As far as we’re concerned, he SHOULD be asked to be involved.
