I was pretty damn surprised to see Jennifer Tilly pop up as Tiffany at the tail end of Curse of Chucky, which promised a sequel that would bring together all of the franchise’s main characters. And indeed that’s precisely what writer/director Don Mancini is doing with this year’s Cult of Chucky, now finished filming and set for release this coming Halloween season.
Tilly just appeared on “New York Live” and naturally, she was asked a few questions about the upcoming seventh installment in the series. Tilly teased, without spilling any beans:
I think it’s going to really surprise and excite the Chucky fans. I am there, in the living, breathing flesh.
You can watch the full interview below.
Here’s the official synopsis that came attached with the initial announcement trailer.
“Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic “tool” to facilitate his patients’ group sessions — an all-too-familiar “Good Guy” doll with an innocently smiling face — a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky’s now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child’s Play, races to Nica’s aid. But to save her he’ll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.”
Cult of Chucky, which takes place in an asylum, will be released in an unrated version on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD this fall, in time for Halloween.
Cult is the seventh Child’s Play film, being directed by franchise creator Don Mancini (who also helmed Seed of Chucky and Curse of Chucky).
