Are You Ready For Revenge Of Chucky?
Brad Dourif says it's in the works

Are You Ready For Revenge Of Chucky?

We're creeping up on the 25th anniversary of the original Child's Play, and at a panel at North Carolina's Mad Monster Party convention, series icon Brad Dourif has confirmed that no fewer than two new killer doll movies are in the works. We might get a fifth sequel in Revenge of Chucky, or we might be taking the remake route.

Child's Play starred Dourif as serial killer Charles Lee "Chucky" Ray, The Lakeshore Strangler, who is shot by heroic cop Chris Sarandon. But thanks to his convenient voodoo abilities, Ray manages to transfer his soul into a doll before he carks it. The Chucky doll, still voiced by Dourif, continued through a couple of conventional follow-ups before the series went mental in 1998, with Ronny Yu's Bride Of Chucky. John Waters named it his film of the year, and it spawned Seed of Chucky in 2004.

Since then little's been heard (although Chucky did make a guest appearance in Tim Seeley's Hack/Slash comic), and there's admittedly not much to go on this morning either, bar the new title. Dourif says he's involved with both projects, whichever comes to bloodily absurd fruition, but hasn't seen any scripts yet.

We do know that Child's Play gurus Don Mancini and David Kirschner are still guiding Chucky through development hell (the ructions at MGM didn't help), and that they're keen to make him scarier when he returns. Mancini is also planning to write and direct, as he did with Seed.

We'll bring you more news as we get it.
