Since unofficially announced way back in October of ’07, things have been relatively quiet for Child’s Play, the remake of the classic 80’s flick that creator Don Mancini has been scripting with plans of taking the helm. This weekend Brad Dourif – who played Charles Lee Ray (also known as Chucky) in the franchise – was on hand at a local horror convention where he confirmed that he will in fact once again play the voice of Chucky. He told fans that after hearing from a random guy at a drug store that he wasn’t returning, he called Mancini and asked, “Are you remaking ‘Child’s Play’?” Mancini exclaimed, “Yeah, you’re gonna do it, right?” Dourif screamed, “YES!” Although, no word on when Universal plans on putting this sucker into production. We’ll keep you posted as always.
In the original: When serial killer Charles Lee Ray is mortally wounded in a police shoot-out, he uses a voodoo spell to transfer his soul into Chucky, a “Good Guys” doll. Andy receives the doll as a birthday gift, and Chucky soon resumes his killing spree. However, Charles doesn’t want to be trapped in the body of a doll forever. His only escape would be to transfer into the first human he revealed his true identity to… which places Andy in mortal danger.
