A 'Child's Play' reboot is in the works

‘Child’s Play’ Reboot In the Works at MGM From ‘It’ Producers

Don Mancini has served as a screenwriter on every "Child's Play" installment, including an upcoming television series, but he will not be working on the story for Klevberg's reboot. Brad Dourif, the OG voice of Chucky, is also attached to the project, set to lend his pipes to the demon doll once more.

Remaking Child's Play? For MGM, that's, well, child's play. David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith (IT) will produce.

Lars Klevberg, who directed the as-yet-unreleased horror movie Polaroid, is set to direct from a script by Tyler Burton Smith, whose credits include Kung Fury and the video game Quantum Break. It's likely that the new doll will be named Chucky, though it's possible that the doll will have a new name. And now, fresh from his cameo in Ready Player One, it sounds like the iconic killer-doll Chucky will be making a cinematic comeback in the form of a Child's Play reboot. MGM is being very hush-hush about the plot details, but Collider reports that it will follow a group of kids squaring off with a new age version of Chucky that's more technologically advanced. Throughout the franchise, Chucky even got married (in 1998's Bride of Chucky) and had children (in 2004's Seed of Chucky) - because why the heck not, right?

Dotcom to take extradition case to Supreme Court

Danny Dyer rumoured to miss Meet The Parents episode of 'Love Island'
The pair, who recently made their relationship official and have both said they love each other, looked thrilled to see other. Dani later confronted Jack about his past with Ellie, telling him some of what Ellie had told her was "not nice to hear".

The eight-part show isn't a reboot, however, as Mancini explained to Bloody Disgusting, and will explore the (even) darker sides of Chucky's history as opposed to getting down and dirty with social commentary and humor.

My reaction to most remakes is usually a simple "huh" or "oh, neat", but when I read about Child's Play my reaction was more of a "WHY". We'll have to wait and see if it ever comes to fruition.

MGM was behind the original 1988 Child's Play, while all sequels were released by Universal - something which could point towards Mancini's lack of involvement in the MGM reboot.
