And here I thought it was just going to be another boring Friday afternoon. Amazing, breaking news coming in from Bloody Disgusting today as a legit Child’s Play television series is coming our way!
Legit initial reaction there.
On the heels of the beloved franchise turning the dirty 30 this year, original screenplay writer Don Mancini, who also directed the last three Chucky installments- Seed, Curse, and Cult, is bringing the Chuck to primetime alongside Child’s Play producer David Kirschner!
According to an interview with BD, the end result of Cult of Chucky is a direct set-up for an eight-part hour-long series to begin, and that the aim is to be darker than the films before:
“We plan to use Child’s Play in the title,” Mancini explained. “We want to definitely signal that we are going dark, darker than ever before. It’s going to be very creepy.”
Also, in case you’re asking yourself, the answer is YES: BRAD DOURIF WILL RETURN TO VOICE CHUCKY! In which case, thank you Play Pal Gods because we wouldn’t have it any other way! In regards to the series picking up after Cult, I have to wonder if that means we will see more of Fiona Dourif and Jennifer Tilly?! Details are being kept under wraps for now so only time will tell.
In the meantime, let’s just celebrate the fact we’re getting more of our little friend to the end.
