While remakes are a plenty, there’s one franchise that’s still wholly intact: Child’s Play.
Child’s Play creator Don Mancini took over the helm of the franchise with Seed of Chucky, the continuation of Bride of Chucky, and then, after Universal mulled a reboot for years, directed the sixth entry, Curse of Chucky.
Curse was everything Child’s Play fans could want, and even wrapped up the franchise with a shocking finale. Even with the geek-plosion, Mancini found a way to leave it open for yet another sequel, one that he’s been very open about (he even revealed one of his defunct plans that placed Chucky on a train).
And while things have been quiet on the Chuckster’s front, Mancini broke the silence this morning via Twitter where he told a fan that he’s still hard at work on the seventh Child’s Play. We can only hope that Tiffany returns as she was teased in the closing moments of Curse of Chucky, which was released through Universal Home Entertainment.
Fans of Child’s Play, what do you want out of the next sequel? It’s pretty remarkable that after all of these years Universal has kept Brad Dourif and Don Mancini involved, which is why Child’s Play may be my favorite horror franchise…
