Bloody Disgusting’s BC recently chatted with Don Mancini, who will be writing and directing the upcoming CHILD’S PLAY remake and uncovered some interesting tid-bits on the filmmaker’s plans for Chucky’s new outing.
Firstly, the reasoning behind a remake of the original as opposed to a sequel of SEED OF CHUCKY? Mancini tells BD, "The bottom line, our main mission was to make it scary again and the best way to do that would be to reboot (the series)."
How much will this reboot differ from the original film? Mancini explains, "It’s a remake, but there are a lot of new things in it. None of the details of the murders in the first movie will be repeated. All of the setpieces are going to be completely brand new, and we’re going to do a slight re-design on Chucky himself, although Brad Dourif will absolutely be the voice of Chucky, and will once again play Charles Lee Ray in the flesh. And we’re giving him more to do than he did in the original movie."

CHILD’S PLAY was written & directed by Tom Holland from a story by Don Mancini and starred Chris Sarandon, Catherine Hicks, Alex Vincent and Brad Dourif as Charles Lee Ray (aka Chucky). The 1988 horror hit went on to spawn 4 sequels and is now on the cusp of a new remake. (More on that HERE!) The DVD arrives September 9th!
