The sixth installment of the Child’s Play franchise, Curse of Chucky, started shooting in September in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The film is directed by Don Mancini, the Child’s Play franchise creator who has written or co-written each of the previous movies and was the director of Seed of Chucky.
And recently a video interview surfaced with Mancini in which we glimpse what looks like some sales art for the film. It bears the tagline, “Be afraid. Be effing afraid.” It’s not bad I guess, I actually kind of prefer it to “f*cking” in this case because the latter would show no originality. Of course, even though the tagline in somewhat censored, that doesn’t make it a PG13 movie. I’m fairly sure this thing will be R (for you rating police out there).
Curse of Chucky stars Fiona Dourif (The Master, “True Blood,” “Deadwood”), A Martinez (“Longmire,” “General Hospital”), Danielle Bisutti (Get Smart, “CSI: Miami”) and Brennan Elliott (Flight 93, Double Jeopardy). Brad Dourif (The Lord of the Rings, Dune) once again returns to provide the voice of Chucky, the pint-sized doll possessed by the spirit of notorious serial killer Charles Lee Ray, who returns to settle some unfinished business.
Head inside for the synopsis and the video interview.
“Nica (Fiona Dourif) is grieving over the gruesome suicide of her mother when her domineering older sister Barb (Danielle Bisutti) arrives with her young family in tow to help settle their mother’s affairs. As the sisters butt heads over Nica’s plans for the future, Barb’s young daughter comforts herself with a grinning, red-haired talking doll named Chucky (voiced again by Brad Dourif) that recently arrived mysteriously in the mail. But as a string of brutal murders begins to terrorize the household, Nica suspects the doll may hold the key to the bloodshed. What she doesn’t know is that Chucky has a personal score to settle. He’s determined to finish a job he started more than 20 years earlier, and this time he’s going to see it through to the bloody and shocking end.”
