It’s been a while since last we heard any rumblings of the proposed remake or reboot or reimagining or whatever they want to call it nowadays to try and quell the fury of the fans, but alas franchise creator Don Mancini has taken a few moments to shed some light on things … Especially just what the hell it’s going to be when it finally does come out.
“I’m personally open to other things but I think that’s what the studio wants” [rather than continuing this series of Chucky films Mancini confirms that the studio is looking for a reboot] “because this movie didn’t do very well so I think the feeling is that Chucky’s viability, his future is in the more straightforward horror vein. I was talking about the rights issues before; I don’t think it’s necessarily what we’ll end up doing as a strict remake.
I think we’ll reboot it in the sense that it will just be more conventionally scary, and it will only be Chucky and won’t have Tiffany and Glen, but it won’t necessarily be a strict remake.”
Sounds to us like they’re looking to give Chucky back more of his mean streak. That’s just what we were hoping for. Click on over to Screen Junkies for the rest of their interview.
Look for more soon!
