Child’s Play franchise co-creator Don Mancini has teased us with another new development in the latest installment in the Child’s Play franchise. Mancini took to Twitter to share a photo (below) of the Winnipeg-based production offices for Chucky 7. The previous installment in the series (Curse of Chucky) was also lensed in Winnipeg.
That a production office has been set up indicates that production is already underway or about to begin. Universal has yet to make any official comment on the status of the long-rumored sequel.
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. In addition, Mancini has suggested that Summer H. Howell, and Alex Vincent will be reprising their roles, as well.
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.
