Don Mancini’s idea for Chucky vs Freddy is priceless

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

It was only a few weeks back that we shared the news that CHILD'S PLAY creator Don Mancini has an idea for CHUCKY IN SPACE and while out promoting the upcoming release of the seventh film in the series, CULT OF CHUCKY, Mancini dropped so fun info on his idea for yet another Chucky sequel…

This time his idea is to go CHUCKY VS FREDDY, or as he calls it CHILD'S PLAY ON ELM STREET.

His basic idea is that Chucky ends up on ELM STREET (duh) but the twist is the two lovable psychos are fans of each other and spend a night trying to see who can rack up the most kills. And that sounds like ALL the fun in the world to me.


I’ve talked about this a lot over the years and it’s actually an idea that I think is cool and doable. It’s just… it would require arranging all the legal red tape between two different studios. But I think Chucky versus Freddy would be awesome. Because they both have distinct personalities, and they both talk, they would be a really fun double act.

Mancini's pitch: 

My idea for the movie is to do it as a horror movie version of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. It’s called Child’s Play on Elm Street. Chucky ends up in the bedroom of a house on Elm Street. And Freddy meets him there. And they’re, like, fans of each other. So they have this rapport. But then they realize Elm Street isn’t big enough for the two of them. It only can contain one killer.

What do you think of Mancini's pitch for CHILD'S PLAY ON ELM STREET? Would you be as down for a Freddy/Chucky crossover as I would? Let us know on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

CULT OF CHUCKY synopsis:

Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic "tool" to facilitate his patients' group sessions – an all-too-familiar "Good Guy" doll with an innocently smiling face – a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn't crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky's now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child's Play, races to Nica's aid. But to save her he'll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky's long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.

CULT OF CHUCKY is written and directed by Don Mancini and stars Jennifer Tilly, Fiona Dourif, Alex Vincent, Grace Lynn Kung, Michael Therriault, Zak Santiago, Summer H. Howell, and, of course, Brad Dourif as the voice of Chucky!

CULT OF CHUCKY is set to hit October 3rd.
