Child’s Play director Lars Klevberg said that plans for a second installment are still on the cards. The horror flick is an official remake of a 1988 film of the same name and is a reboot of the Child’s Play movie franchise. According to reports, the remake featuring the scary doll Chucky was made on a relatively small budget. The film was subject to mixed reviews at the box office considering its budget but ultimately turned out to be a commercial success for the studio behind the movie.
According to reports, the director gave an update on the possibility of the second installment in a question and answer session on Instagram. Klevburg stated that all the ideas are there to carry the story of the wisecracking doll forward, and he was hoping to get the actors back for the film.
Child’s Play 2 Might Not Make it to the Silver Screen
According to reports, there is a possibility that Child’s 2 might never make it to a theatrical release because the original Child’s Play creator Don Mancini is planning to make a television show to continue the story of Chucky. In addition to this, Jennifer Tilly might come back as the Bride of Chucky. The TV series’ story will see Chucky at a yard sale in an American town. The murderous doll’s arrival will bring about a series of murders and how the town’s secrets are exposed. Characters from Chucky’s past will also arrive and threaten to reveal the actual truth behind the murders. The story will also dive into the serial killer Charles Lee Ray aka Chucky, whose spirit inhabits a “Good Guy” Doll and tries to transfer his soul to a human body.
Brad Dourif Will Return to Voice the Character of Chucky
The television show will see Brad Dourif returning to voice the character of the killer doll. Dourif first voiced Chucky’s character in the 1988 film Child’s Play, followed by Child’s Play 2 and 3. The actor voiced the doll in subsequent sequels such as Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky, Curse of Chucky, and Cult of Chucky. However, he was replaced by Mark Hamill in the 2019 remake. Most probably, MGM will wait and analyze the performance of Chucky on television before they give the go-ahead for the sequel.
There is no official premiere date for the horror television series. According to reports, the 8-part series will release some time in the latter half of 2020. Also, there is no clarity on the start date of the production stage. Brad Dourif is known for his work in The Exorcist 3, HBO series Deadwood, and the 1975 academy-award winning One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.
