Wicked Horror has just learned that director Don Mancini is currently in preproduction on Child’s Play 7. He took to Twitter to share the news and also provided a snapshot to show what the storyboarding process is looking like, saying “STORYBOARDING #Chucky7. Glen doubling Chucky. @angelnorelation doubling… ?” This is great news, considering that the last installment in the franchise, Curse of Chucky was a brilliant sequel and left fans wanting more.
We previously revealed that both Fiona Dourif and Jennifer Tilly were on board to return for Child’s Play 7.
In a previous Twitter conversation, Dourif asked Mancini if she should be packing for Canada, Romania, or South Africa. Mancini playfully told her to bring her wheelchair and assured her that he would provide the blood. Universal Home Entertainment has been know to shoot in South Africa, Canada, and Romania. For example, the distributor lensed at least one Death Race sequel in South Africa, Curse of Chucky was shot in Canada, and the Danny Trejo starrer Dead in Tombstone was lensed in Romania.
From what we’ve gathered, Mancini will very likely be writing and directing with Jennfer Tilley reprising her role as Tiffany. Dourif is expected to return as the wheelchair-bound Nica.
Stay tuned to the site in the coming months for the latest horror news as well as more about this project as we learn it!
The most recent installment in the series, Curse of Chucky, sees the return of the indestructible killer doll that is possessed by the spirit of Charles Lee Ray. Chuck sets his sights on a young, wheelchair-bound woman named Nica. When he arrives at her home, he immediately begins making trouble for the nice young lady. Mysterious deaths start to occur all around her and Nica comes to suspect that the doll that just showed up on her doorstep may be to blame. No word just yet on where the seventh film will take things. But we will hopefully know more soon.
