A killer sought by a Chicago detective (Chris Sarandon) becomes a doll called Chucky, bought by a woman (Catherine Hicks) for her son (Alex Vincent).
After an attempt to revive the Child's Play movie franchise back in 2008 went nowhere because of a rights dispute, it now looks like horror icon "Chucky" will finally be given new life in a remake of the 1988 movie that spawned four sequels. According to MovieWeb, MGM—only months out of bankruptcy—will be going into production on the new Child's Play sometime later this year, using the script written by creator and franchise writer Don Mancini in 2008. The new Chucky movie will supposedly be darker in tone, with fewer comedic elements. Brad Dourif (Grima Wormtongue to The Lord of the Rings fans) will return as the voice of Chucky.
