Both a 'Child's Play' Sequel and Remake Are Being Developed Now?

Child's Play

Over a year ago now, with MGM back on the rise, it sounded like a remake of Child's Play might finally getting off the ground with Brad Dourif returning to voice everyone's favorite murderous little buddy Chucky. However, since then updates on the project have been stagnant. Well, Moviehole recently attended North Carolina's Mad Monster Party convention and Dourif was in attendance for a reunion preceding the forthcoming 25th anniversary of the horror favorite, and offered an update saying a remake is still in the works, but that a separate sequel in the franchise was also being developed at the same time. More below!

The remake seems to still be in the hands of Don Mancini, and it has been said to be darker and less comedic than the original franchise. Meanwhile, the sequel, which sounds like more of a spin-off, is said to involve Chucky's immediate family. Following Bride of Chucky and Seed of Chucky, that's not all that surprising. Going by the title Revenge of Chucky, the sequel will likely continue the increasingly dark comedic tone the franchise has come to embody. Dourif is apparently involved in both projects, but he points out that no script for the remake has been sent his way yet. As of now, it's not even clear how likely it is for either of these projects to actually take off, but with the 25th anniversary coming next year, there's no better time to bring back Chucky for the fans. Which one sounds better?

    I'd kick the hell out of a doll.
  • Rain Spider
    As if thats not confusing as hell. How do you have a remake coming out along with a continuation of the original show. Jesus Hollywood. 
  • N.
    Makes no sense but yet It Sounds Awesome!!!
  • grimjob
    I LOVE Brad Dourif. In everything he does. As long as he voices Chucky, I'll see it. A remake is unnecessary though. Just make a new one without the humor from the last 2.
  • Max Renn
    Neither sounds good. But there's no stopping the lack of creativity in Hollywood.
  • TTumMM
    can you just wait for like 50 years to remake it?

    I'd like a dark sequel that brings back the original Andy.
    • Freddy9088
       thank you man cont agre mor bring andy back  
  • Ecartman12
    The series needs a reboot, not a sequel so they should scrap the idea for a sequel and work harder on the remake.
    • khalid
      couldn't agree with you more.
  • Voice of Reason
    In all honesty, the Seed of Chucky was a terrible addition to a fastly dwindling franchise. The bride and the son have steered Chucky in a bad direction. I dont want to see his family, his bride or know more about his son....something needs to bring Chucky back on track and for once it seems like a remake is the only way to do that.
  • w_cropper
    I'm all for a new Chucky film If done right but I must beg of Don to stop with this dark comedic tone. It sucks...Bride was fine but I want a sequel up there with the first 3 films.  As a Child's Play fan, we get the short end of the stick when it comes to Chucky films. It really doesn't seem like Don is listening to the fans. We are your bread and butter. If we don't like the film and he repeats the same mistakes he did with Seed then this will fail as well and he'll be sitting on his couch wondering what am I doing wrong? LISTEN TO US!
  • Sin-Singa
    U kno wat? I want a dark remake along wit a dark sequel...andy also needs to return fr the sequel...and kathrine hicks shuld do the sequuel too bt I think she might b doin the remake...any ways as long as its a dark and not comedy movie
  • http://twitter.com/GotCreations Got Creations
    even though the last two movies make a joke out of the series i would like to see 6th movie AND A REMAKE 
  • Hembree
    I'm going with the sequel. Because after all the exposure I'm not sure the property is scary anymore. Anyone remember Wes Craven's New Nightmare? I didn't think so. 
  • Almcclure2005
    Shut the hell up and let them make the movies I've been waiting for this for YEARS
    • hisbabymama
      Hell yea I agree lol
    • khalid
      exactly.
  • BLERP
    I hate remakes, but not as much as Seed of Chucky. I vote remake it, with no shred of comedy.
  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Gareth-KoRn-Jackson/576174652 Gareth KoRn Jackson
    I say do the remake a follow up from seed of chucky, well their be wasting money, i bet "the cabin in the woods" would be better, and i thought that was shit. 
  • 308live

    this better be better than the remake of nightmare on elm Street which was boring so MGM better wow us 
  • Whatsit Tooya
    NO MORE COMEDY!!! We all want to see a dark remake. I do not watch a horror movie to laugh people I watch one to be scared. Enough of this light horror comedy crap bring back the evil killer chucky. I WANT A DARK HORROR REMAKE. Listen to the people i beg!
  • Ejones3665

    If they do Revenge of Chucky they should kill off Glen and Tiffany right in the beginning so that the rest of the movie could focus on Chucky and Andy 
    • jon
      they should not even involve them. Tiffany got what she wanted, she is human with children; therefore her story is done. They should just forget the ending to seed and bring back chucky in whatever way they have planned.
      • Sithanris
        yes she is humen. but if u remember at the end she killed her house keeper during her kids b-day party. so you would think she is still a killer and could be wanted fer murder most likly.
      • steph
        i dont think it should exclude tiffany and the kids, but i think it should alos include the kids of andy maybe. how about, ironically, glen is dating andy's daughter which pisses chucky off beyond reason. or even glenda dating a son of andy better yet, then he comes back to kill tiff an dthe kids and to take andys sons body since he failed with andy. idk, lol just a thought of how they could include them and bring andy back too
  • chase
    If they make a sequel it should start from childs play 3 and forget about seed and bride, those two sucked
    • liammassey
      you have a good point there, i agree, they could do andy and his mum finaly back together (reunite)
    • phoenixfan
      i agree but the bride and the seed were not that bad
  • JesusRavelo
    I think they should do both the remake and the sequel, yes make the remake darker with no comedy at all, give people those creeps when watching a darker new scarier chucky.......Anyways i wrote something that some people might want to see in a future Chucky movie - they should bring Andy (Alex Vincent) and Karen (Catherine Hicks) back...and they should make Andy having a son already ......it's on Andy's son's 8th birthday ((Andy's son wanted a Good Guy doll so bad)) when Andy and Andy's mom Karen decide to get him a Good Guy Doll thinking that Chucky is no longer coming back......later, story repeats itself when Chucky starts talking to Andy's son, Chucky did not have a clue that he was on Andy's house untill Chucky saw the papers and photos of Andy when he was child and had problems with the "Good Guy Doll".... Chucky then gets revenge on Andy by killing him, leaving grandma Karen (Catherine Hicks) to protect Andy's son from Chucky wanting to possess him (Change bodies)......... I think they should make a Chucky movie with the story i made up, Right???
    • liammassey
      kind of a good idea, like they say 'history can repeat itself'
  • Jesus Ravelo
    I think they should do both the remake and the sequel, yes make the remake darker with no comedy at all, give people those creeps when watching a darker new scarier chucky.......Anyways i wrote something that some people might want to see in a future Chucky movie - Since Tiffany and Glenn were finally human and got what they wanted, and Chucky was left being a doll continuing his journey of finding a new body...that should be the new darker continuation of the Sequel and they should bring Andy (Alex Vincent) and Karen (Catherine Hicks) back...and they should make Andy having a son already ......it's on Andy's son's 8th birthday ((Andy's son wanted a Good Guy doll so bad)) when Andy and Andy's mom Karen decide to get him a Good Guy Doll thinking that Chucky is no longer coming back......later, story repeats itself when Chucky starts talking to Andy's son, Chucky did not have a clue that he was on Andy's house untill Chucky saw the papers and photos of Andy when he was a child and had problems with the "Good Guy Doll"....

      just a perfect synopsis of something that is unfortunetly too good to be tru :'/
  • John
    Remakes usually suck but I'd damn sure take a dark remake over another ridiculous comedic sequel.
  • http://www.facebook.com/shaun.manning.351 Shaun Manning
    See the whole original idea has been killed. Andy is the first one to see Charles Lee Ray Alive as The doll,So technically the 3rd movie made no sense at all...Why was Chucky trying to go into Tylers body when He was supposed to go into andys body. Seed of Chucky was the worst cause Glen was able to make Tiffany an Chucky come alive just from saying the words on the Heart of Demballa but yet in the 1st 3 movies Chucky couldnt do it. So yea im hoping that this "Revenge of Chucky" will have new twist cause im sure Chucky wont want to go in the body of an older man since andy would be in his 30's now.
    • thoroughbred
      He wanted Tylers body because he was younger than. Andy and glen was able to bring them to life because he possessed the heart of damballa (which was burried with the body of charles lee ray when chucky tried)
  • Randa
    I enjoyed Bride & Seed but I've had enough of the comedic Chucky, bring on the horror!
  • cliff
    there's to chucky movies in the making the reboot & sequel.. the reboot is connect to 123.. besides bride & seed thats when chucky became more comedy
  • nyhorrorLover420
    Both and a remake is needed because nightmare on elm had one Friday the 13th and Halloween all had one....I agree andy needs to come back and will watch only if brad douriff does the voices for both...the guy who jus played freddy sucked from the watchmen....Robert englund made freddy who he is like brad doriff...so why would we take away there original personalities ....they can be extremly dark n still comedic...don't change the character man that's where these remakes go wrong
  • horrorfan
    I stoped watching after the 3rd would love a remake but pass on the 6th instalment.
  • callmeB-iLL
    SCREW THE SEQUEL!!! THIS SERIES NEEDS A FULL FLEDGED REBOOT THATS CLEARLY WHAT THE FANS WANT!! THATS WHAT WE NEED TO GET!!! They need to give us what we want, and thats A SCARY CHUCKY!! Bride of Chucky was okay with the funny stuff, but they over did it with Seed, I am a diehard chucky fan Im almost 20 years old been into "The Chuck" since the age of 5, he is my childhood favorite slasher, and it will pain me if I have to see them ruin him more than they did with Seed.
  • Koala
    The Beginning of "The Revenge of Chucky" should be like Andy has a son and Andy's son wants a doll. When Chucky arrives at Andy's House, Chucky should be good to the kid secretly. And when chucky finds out the photos of Andy and his diary he turns out to be bad then killing Andy
  • karah woytovich
    they shld keep tifffany the real killer of the movies is glen, then have chucky and tiffany go after andy come on ppl they cnt come up with any scary movies on their own so they keep remaking he classics a sequel wld b bettr than another remake boring!!!
  • karah woytovich
    whats with the andy lovers? he wasnt all tht good in the movies they shld add tif if they have a remake they shld do a bettr version of the bride of chucky more horror this time tht way u ppl wnt hate on tif
  • karah woytovich
    y kill off glen and tif if theyre already there? wats the point? if ur goin to talk shit about the first movies at least they are making a new one at all i say if theyre gonna do a remake do the bride of chucky tht way the haters have a chance to see tif in a darker scarier movie if ppl r gonna talk crap then dnt watch it but a remake is kinda pointless they cnt come up wit a bettr horror movie so they make the movies look stupid by remaking them if they r gonna do a sequel it wld b too confusing to kill off tif and glen if they do anything they shld have tiffany fall in love wit andy they get together and tht pisses chucky off and he goes aftr their kids and them so they all go thriugh this huge chase but theyre the producers so they can make it a horror but add some comedy cause tht wld change chucky and y everyone loves him

  • Tyler
    well im hoping for a new chucky movie but Seed of chucky left it open for a new one. but the script for the new one seems like something else
  • Tyler
    bring back Andy but 40 year old tho so Andy will see his old doll again
  • liammassey
    I can't wait for the remake, I do want the remake to come first.
  • YORKEE
    after the first one, its true part 2 and 3 were kind of comedic. I mean I was like 6 or 7 and I was laughing with chucky instead of being scared of him. and dont even mention the bride of chucky serious. now part 1 will always be the epic one.
  • chuckys biggest fan
    ye bring back andy haha hes funny spazing over a doll and everyones getting pissed at him hah from childs play 3 u should have andy b a grown ass man freacking over doll and evryones yelling at him then he comes back by someone making him again to see if the curse was tru then he kills them and gose for glen and tilly and kills her then glen arter a nice fight of course and then gose for andy and upholds his promomise to kill anybody who did him wrong and that includes andy and then while atempting to get andy a few times he trys to get a new body and andy kills him then it turns out he got into that body and kills andy at the end.....perfection or go with the whole bullshit graveyard thing and not acomplish anything and put it out on the damn dvd u better make a good remake after this thats better than the curse and fallow after seed of chucky so the curse has mening then make someone else go into the same doll so that thell experence the same thing and the killings will continue but not really
  • Mj
    A sequel or reboot would be great.. but imagine this. a sequel with a late 20's or middle aged Andy, and somehow he ecounters chucky again. im sure a great script can come form this premise, and maybe even use the andy from child's play 3, cuz i think the original andy doesnt look right for the part anymore. would be great to see andy get haunted by chucky again even in his 30's.
  • phoenixfan
    i think they should start from the end of childs play three and after andy gets a family chucky goes after them
  • madacy101
    I'd like to see a remake with some good talent. I don't mean big names in Hollywood, but some good acting and a good script. Chucky was a whole lot better as an evil Good Guy.
  • khalid
    come on hollywood make it already.
