About a year ago, Don Mancini confirmed that he was working on a script for the seventh film in the Child’s Play franchise but we haven’t heard much about since then. Well, yesterday, Mancini and Jennifer Tilley engaged in a witty Twitter exchange about the long-rumored seventh installment in the Child’s Play series.
Mancini Tweeted at Tilly asking if they should shoot the seventh installment in the series in Cape Town and Tilly responded by saying noting that the crews there are professional and you can’t beat the weather.
This seems to suggest that the film may be in the early stages of preproduction and that Mancini will be directing with Tilley reprising her role as Tiffany, in some capacity. Also worthy of note is the fact that Universal Home Entertainment has been know to shoot in South Africa. For example, the distributor lensed at least one Death Race sequel there.
