Bloody Disgusting reader ‘Kurewka’ just sent us the first ever look at Don Mancini’s Curse of Chucky, which was rumored for release on September 24, 2013 from Universal. A second update has come in Friday night as we’re told by inside sources the date may/should be changing. Hold for official news coming soon.
The still displays leading lady, Fiona Dourif, talking to a Good Guys doll. Fiona is daughter to Brad Dourif, who has voiced Chucky in all six Child’s Play films. The photo cracks me up as “Chucky” has his own chair (even though the names are typically on the back).
In the latest installment, “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.”
Don Mancini is the creator of the Child’s Play franchise and has written/or directed all of the sequels.
