Chucky is on a killing spree in new Child’s Play TV spot
Playtime is over in the newly released TV spot for the Child’s Play reboot, giving us a preview of Chucky’s brutal killing spree. Starring Mark Hamill as the voice of our favorite titular killer doll, the film is scheduled to hit theaters on June 21. Check out the video below.
Aubrey Plaza (Ingrid Goes West) and Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta) are headlining the new Child’s Play, under the helm of filmmaker Lars Klevberg (Polaroid). Tyler Burton Smith wrote the screenplay based on the 1988 film. In the reboot, Plaza stars as a mother who gives her son Andy, portrayed by Gabriel Bateman (Lights Out), a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature. The new version of the killer doll won’t be a doll possessed by a serial killer but will be a defective Buddy doll whose programming code was hacked so that he has no limitations to learning and also violence.
Additional cast includes Beatrice Kitsos (The Exorcist) and Ty Consiglio (Wonder) who will be playing the roles of Falyn and Pugg respectively, two friends of Andy Barclay in the new film which is currently shooting in Vancouver. Carlease Burke (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) will also star in the film. Mark Hamill (Star Wars) will take over from Brad Dourif (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest) as the voice of Chucky.
