Cult of Chucky recruits Grace Lynn Kung

Grace Lynn Kung

Actress Grace Lynn Kung has some experience working within the horror, sci-fi, and thriller genres; she has been in the vicinity of some strange and creepy things in such films and television series as CUBE 2: HYPERCUBE, STIR OF ECHOES: THE HOMECOMING, The Strain, and 12 Monkeys, but she has never faced down one of our icons before. She's going to now.

Kung has signed on to play a "hard-edged" character named Claire in writer/director Don Mancini's CULT OF CHUCKY, the seventh entry in the CHILD'S PLAY franchise. She joins a cast that includes returning series stars Fiona Dourif, Alex Vincent, Jennifer Tilly, Summer H. Howell, and Brad Dourif, who will once again be providing the voice of killer doll Chucky.

Mancini has written or co-written every CHILD'S PLAY movie to date, and also directed SEED OF CHUCKY and CURSE OF CHUCKY. The story he cooked up this time around:

Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce 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, 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, Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.

Currently filming in Winnipeg, CULT OF CHUCKY will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD this fall, just in time for Halloween viewings.
