We already have a Child’s Play TV series in the works, then came rumor of a film to be a remake of the Child’s Play film. The remake is a very unpopular for several reasons but the main reasons being that Don Mancini, Brad Dourif or any other of the original cast are not involved in the project. Rumors had said that technology would be a major change to the doll.
Lars Klevberg is said to be the director of the remake which is supposed to start filming this fall.
Comic Book received some information from a unnamed source with plot and character information. Chucky is said to be “A defective ‘Buddy doll’ whose programming code was hacked so that he has no limitations to learning and also violence.” One character is described as a “Chinese factory worker who commits suicide shortly after re-programming a Buddy doll to have no limitations.”
We did find this synopsis listed in IMdb “Andy, a twelve-year-old boy, and his ragtag group of friends face off against a robot doll on a killing spree.”
