Here Comes a Child's Play Remake

Thanks a lot, Rob Zombie!

Well, we knew it was only a matter of time, right?

Shock Till You Drop reports that Child’s Play producer David Kirschner is preparing to give his franchise the remake/reboot treatment. The news comes direct from Kirschner, who tells the site:

“We’re discussing it with Don Mancini, who has written all of them with us from the beginning…the next one we’re going to do is we’re going back and remaking the first one and even pushing it further and making a very terrifying version of the first one, which is pretty scary as it is.”

Having Mancini on board as the new film’s writer/director is something that will no doubt please fans of the original — but the big question here is still why, and Shock Till You Drop was nice enough to ask Kirschner just that. His response:

“Look at ‘Halloween.’ It’s kind of commerce to keep the franchise going, and another reason to go see it. For me, it’s exciting, because the first one was really scary and then from there, we kind of… my favorites are 1 and 4. I love 4, it really makes me laugh and I think Jennifer Tilly is so great, but just the idea of going back to where we were the first time around and I think for me, it’s almost 30 years later for me as a filmmaker from where I started to now, and the idea of taking some skill that maybe I didn’t possess then and putting it towards the next film, I think could be exciting.”

There you have it. For more information on the new Child’s Play — including which new “twists” the audience might be able to expect, the possible involvement of Brad Dourif, and whether the new Chucky will be computer-generated — click on the link below!
