Recently we caught up with Don Mancini and David Kirschner regarding the upcoming Child’s Play remake so it was time to do a little diggin’!
We all know that Dourif is coming back and that the duo want to bring the remake back to the film’s scarier roots, but was there anything else to learn at this point?
“My producing partner and I sat in the room and listened to where Don was going with the remake — and it is a remake, but he also very significantly subverts your expectation,” says Kirschner. “There are all the same characters and everything that you would expect, but he pulls the rug out from under you.
We’ve been friends for a long time,” Kirschner continues. “I know Don’s humor, I know Don’s mind, and I was shocked by where he took us, and where I thought I was going, and then at the last minute something else would happen that would be completely different from what I expected. It’s the same film, but he really plays with us as an audience. For those who remember and those who will be seeing it for the first time, it will be very frightening.”
