Polaroid director Lars Klevberg’s Child’s Play reboot with Aubrey Plaza and Mark Hamill as the voice of Chucky is one of my recent favorites.
And today, Klevberg teased on Instagram he still wants a sequel, writing: “It would be amazing to pull the crew and the actors back for another one, but MGM needs to get their stuff together and do it. It’s all there.”
Check out his post below.
The remake begins after moving to a new city, young Andy Barclay receives a special present from his mother — a seemingly innocent Buddi doll that becomes his best friend. When the doll suddenly takes on a life of its own, Andy unites with other neighborhood children to stop the sinister toy from wreaking bloody havoc.
Rated R for bloody horror violence, and language throughout, it sports a 63% rating over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: Child’s Play updates an ’80s horror icon for the Internet of Things era, with predictably gruesome — and generally entertaining — results.
Written by Tyler Burton Smith, the film stars Plaza and Hamill with Gabriel Bateman, Brian Tyree Henry, Tim Matheson, and David Lewis.
