Child’s Play (2014)

Mr Movie Preview April 30, 2013 62

So a Child’s Play remake is being planned for the year 2014 now. We had reported this as a 2011 release, then a 2012 release.. and now they got the legal stuff worked out. Chucky needs to be reintroduced to the next generation of children. What happened here is director Don Mancini decided to release Curse of Chuck straight to video, rather than the theaters. The movie will hit VOD and DVD Halloween 2013. However it is also confirmed there will be a new Child’s Play movie in 2014 as we have mentioned numerous times.

Child’s Play 2014

We can confrim Jennifer Tilly will not be in the remake, but Catherine Hicks will be back as ‘Karen’. Also, no word yet on who will play Andy Barclay.  They are relaunching this franchise, it is not a sequel.

Child’s Play (2014) will tell the story of Chucky, all over again, but leave the comedy out. No more ‘side splitting’ Chucky, but the new Child’s Play movie will be very dark and disturbing, holding true to it’s original roots. In the Child’s Play movie, serial killer Charles Lee Ray gets gunned down by the police, and transfers his soul into a doll just before he dies. Days later, Andy Barclay gets the same doll for his birthday. In order for Charles (Chucky) to transfer his soul out of the doll, he must preform a voodoo chant on the first person he told his true identity to… Andy.

Why you care

I’m not sure anyone cares for this remake, but I do. I like the ridiculousness of the Child’s Play franchise, and a more serious take on this franchise would do it some justice. Chucky’s twisted little mind, and remarks usually make for an entertaining movie, and with the new generation of CGI I think the new Chucky Doll will look pretty good.

Child’s Play Release Date

Huge delays and legal battles, have bumped the new Child’s Play Movie back to a July 2014 release. I was looking forward to this, so I suppose having to wait for a better product in 2014 is only better for us. Apparently there was a huge battle over who owned the rights to the franchise and it has been settled. The original film belonged to MGM, but Universal bought the rights to the sequels.

Who’s In It?

Rumor has it Catherine Hicks will be in this one, while Danny Trejo has also confirmed interest.. Brad Dourif will do the voice for Chucky , which fans of the series will appreciate.

What’s Good About it?

Actually, the Chucky franchise was pretty decent at one time, he’s laughable, cute and frightening all at the same time. So, with this new Child’s Play movie we expect more of the same, and we can live with that.

What’s Bad About It?

Director Don Mancini hasn’t done a thing other than the Chucky franchise.

Our Clever Prediction

The Child’s Play franchise was destroyed by ‘Bride Of Chucky’ etc.. not sure how they can get this back to its origins. Will they make it 3D? Still, its a loyal following, we won’t be shocked if its a 50 Million dollar film if released around Halloween.

    I disagree with Joseph Lucas III. Keep to the story and stop making these rediculous movies about dolls having babies. Stick to the original. That was the best out of all of them. Chucky needs to come back as the killer doll he is and not some black comedy comedian. That was really anoying. The bride of chucky was good but the seed of chucky was a total waste. I don’t know what came over the people that made that “movie”.It was like a sad joke that did not pay off.
    I agree with Keith, make a “Raw” horror film and get rid of the dumb jokes. Chucky is a killing machine not some stand up comedian. Keep his diabolical laugh, that I get a kick out of. I have to say, alot of the remakes that have been coming out are just pitiful. I love horror films and what they did with my Jason, Michael, and Freddy was just wrong.
    Make us proud.

    I want want to see Chucky’s son to come back in the movie. The story should continue from the last Chucky movie.

    I believe that this remake will kick total ass. In my opinion all the other horror movie remakes were pretty damn good. They all did what they intended; retelling a classic story with updated effects and quality. The difference between this remake, or “reboot”, is that most of the original cast as well as directors and producers will be returning. No Rob Zombie here.

    …only time will tell…
