“It’s going to be very creepy.”
A Child’s Play TV series reportedly is in the works.
Bloody Disgusting reports franchise creator Don Mancini and franchise producer David Kirschner are developing the series together, and it will be a continuation of the story rather than a reboot. It reportedly will pick up where the last film in the franchise, Cult of Chucky, left off.
“We plan to use Child’s Play in the title,” Mancini said. “We want to definitely signal that we are going dark, darker than ever before. It’s going to be very creepy.”
Mancini also confirmed longtime Chucky voice actor Brad Dourif will voice the iconic character in the eight-part, hour-long series. However, not much else about the show is currently known, including where it might premiere. The series also won’t spell the end for the film franchise, according to the new report.
Some of Mancini’s TV credits include being a writer-producer on the Hannibal NBC series and on the Syfy anthology horror series Channel Zero.
