CHUCKY 7 Coming Soon(ish)!

Get ready horror fans, CHILD’S PLAY creator Don Mancini confirmed that “good things come to those who wait” on Twitter when he sent out the following tweet (featuring some fan art by Matt Ryan Tobin).

Chuck

For those unfamiliar with the series, CHILD’S PLAY revolves around the story of serial killer Charles Lee Ray, whose soul is transferred into a Good Guy doll after he is shot in an altercation with the police. Resurrected as a living doll through Voodoo magic, Chucky continues killing people who have crossed him, all while trying to regain a human body. Usually there to thwart him is a young boy named Andy, who received the Good Guy doll as a birthday present and has been Chucky’s nemesis ever since the first film. In the last few entries in the series, Chucky has steered away from his more frightening roots to settle down in the realm of horror comedy, while also taking the time to get married and have kid(s).

It’s been two years since Mancini directed the most recent film in the franchise, CURSE OF CHUCKY, which was released direct to DVD. Despite not having a theatrical release, CURSE OF CHUCKY actually pleased many fans of the franchise thanks in part to a “return to form” for the series by having a similar set up to the first film, as well as having a number of callbacks to other entries in the series. Though Brad Dourif is already set to reprise his role as Chucky for the seventh film in the franchise (as if ANYONE else could play the iconic killer doll), it has been almost a year since Mancini initially confirmed that he was working on the script for CHUCKY 7. Though details are vague, fans are simply happy to hear official news on the matter. Even if this is the last bit of news we hear for a while, fans can always count on one thing, Chucky always comes back.

What do you think of the news? Are you looking forward to the next entry in the series, or do you think play time is up for this franchise? Be sure to let us know @TheMovieChickk!
