Listen, I love the CHILD’S PLAY series and I’m pretty sure the majority of you Schmoes do too, which why I’m not going to delay this bit of news any longer: CURSE OF CHUCKY has officially started production in Canada and a full cast list and synopsis are here.

The film will be directed by series creator Don Mancini, who previously directed SEED OF CHUCKY. The film stars Fiona Dourif (daughter of Brad Dourif), A Martinez, Danielle Bisuti, and Brennan Elliott. The aforementioned father Dourif will of course be returning as the voice of Chucky. Based on the synopsis, it looks like ol’ Charles Lee Ray has left the family and domestic bliss of previous films behind in favor of the old school slasher mayhem that started the series:

“Nica (Fiona Dourif) is grieving over the gruesome suicide of her mother when her domineering older sister Barb (Danielle Bisutti) arrives with her young family in tow to help settle their mother’s affairs. As the sisters butt heads over Nica’s plans for the future, Barb’s young daughter comforts herself with a grinning, red-haired talking doll named Chucky (voiced again by Brad Dourif) that recently arrived mysteriously in the mail. But as a string of brutal murders begins to terrorize the household, Nica suspects the doll may hold the key to the bloodshed. What she doesn’t know is that Chucky has a personal score to settle. He’s determined to finish a job he started more than 20 years earlier, and this time he’s going to see it through to the bloody and shocking end.”

Based on SEED’S diminished box office returns, I’d say the direct-to-DVD route is a safe bet for CURSE OF CHUCKY, but who cares? The film appears to be taking the series back into straight horror movie territory and that's enough for me. I loved BRIDE OF CHUCKY and SEED as goofy horror comedies, but look forward to seeing Chucky get back to his scarier roots. Now, who wants to take bets that the film’s protagonist is somehow related to the Barclay clan of the previous CHILD'S PLAY movies? I’m downright banking on it at this point. Respond below, my fellow Good Guys!

Extra Tidbit: Series regular Jennifer Tilly (above) will be missed.

Actually I'm thinking with Dourif's daughter that she'll be Charles Lee Ray's daughter/relative. I'm dubious because it's going DTV. Still wish this was a proper reboot being released theatrically.

Sounds like a good Direct to DVD movie.

The best thing about this, it is directed by the creator of the "Child's Play" movies. It seems, it will be closer to the style of the original movie. Which it is probably a good thing. Most of the production crew worked on the original movies came back too. It is cool, they gotten Dourif back to do the voice of Chucky again and his daughter is lead in this movie. I hope it is good, if it turns out really good, who knows, maybe it will have an theatrical release. Look at "Saw", it was

I've always loved Childs Play 1-3 (4 & 5 are ok). I'm excited to see it return to its roots, where it hopefully takes itself a little more seriously. That's what made the first one work so well!

I love the fact that they are making another child's play movie but movies that are direct to dvd/video usually have bad quality. I would rather see it theatres. I personally would actually love to see the series rebooted especially with current technology. I would be awsome to see them fix all the flaws with the series. I however am excited for a sequel but was more looking forward to a reboot rather than a sequel especially after where they took the series with bride and seed of chucky. Im

Im just hoping this one does well with money and reviews to keep the series alive.
