New Child’s Play featurette shows how Chucky is evolving
The latest behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming Child’s Play reboot shows that Chucky has definitely been keeping up with the times. As the featurette shows, now that the Buddi Doll is 100% WiFi enabled, he has many more options when it comes to murder and other general mayhem. You can check it out in the player 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, as will Mark Hamill (Body Bags), who’ll voice the newly upgraded, still homicidal Buddi Doll.
Chucky will stab his way back onto the big screen on June 21.
