Child's Play Lars Klevberg Tim Matheson

The trailer for director Lars Klevberg's remake of the 1988 classic CHILD'S PLAY is set to be released this Friday, as it's expected to be showing before theatrical screenings of the creepy kid movie THE PRODIGY. Now a viral video has arrived online to help get us prepared for the trailer.

If you haven't been following the details of the CHILD'S PLAY remake, you wouldn't even realize the viral video had anything to do with it. It's presented as an announcement from Kaslan Corporation, "the world's leading developer of interactive tech products", and features Tim Matheson as Kaslan founder and CEO Henry Kaslan. Kaslan's company has a new product coming out that they're very excited to share with the world... But we know that the release of this new "artificial intelligence human companion" they've created is going to go terribly wrong. This is how we get the new version of Chucky.

Here's the full Kaslan Corporation press release: 


A special Buddi® reveal is heading your way on February 8, 2019!

Los Angeles, CA --- February 4, 2019 --- Kaslan Corp, the world's leading developer of interactive tech products for home and lifestyle, is excited to reveal a revolutionary new product - the Artificial Intelligence human companion, Buddi®.

Able to connect to and control Kaslan's wide range of tech products and all smart home devices, Buddi® is the world's most advanced AI human companion to date and will be available nationwide on June 21, 2019. 
Consumers have been living with AI assistants in their homes for nearly eight years with the introduction of Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa and other devices. You can ask AI assistants to play a song, provide directions, forecast the weather, turn off your house lights and much more. But to date, a true relationship building opportunity with AI has been outside the bounds of imagination.

Buddi® is where we’ve all been headed in the field of AI, and I’m proud to say that Kaslan Corporation is bringing that future into the homes of families across the world,” said Henry Kaslan, founder/CEO of Kaslan Corporation.

- And so much more!

The CHILD'S PLAY remake was written by Tyler Burton Smith and stars Gabriel Bateman, Aubrey Plaza, Beatrice Kitsos, Ty Consiglio, Carlease Burke, and Brian Tyree Henry.

The film was produced by David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith, with Aaron Schmidt and Chris Ferguson serving as executive producers.

The new CHILD'S PLAY is set to be released on June 21st. The trailer will be here in just four days.

This project has nothing to do with the recently announced Chucky TV series that's being developed for Syfy. That show is a continuation of the original franchise.
