Child’s Play franchise co-creator Don Mancini has been teasing the long-awaited arrival of Child’s Play 7 on Twitter for some time. And the writer/director’s latest tweet seems to suggest that not only is a seventh film happening ver soon, it may also be bringing together stars from several different Child’s Play films. Mancini recently posted a photo (pictured below) of himself standing in front of the home where the exterior shots for Curse of Chucky were taken and captioning the image by saying: “#Chucky IS FINALLY COMING HOME”.
Mancini tagged Fiona Dourif, Jennifer Tilly, Summer H. Howell, and Alex Vincent, all of whom have appeared in previous installments in the series. Based on this latest tweet and the post-credit sequence in the sixth film, it sure sounds like Mancini has plans to bring stars from several different installments together in one film.
We previously revealed that both Fiona Dourif and Jennifer Tilly were on board to return for Child’s Play 7.
In a previous Twitter conversation, Dourif asked Mancini if she should be packing for Canada, Romania, or South Africa. Mancini playfully told her to bring her wheelchair and assured her that he would provide the blood. Universal Home Entertainment has been know to shoot in South Africa, Canada, and Romania. For example, the distributor lensed at least one Death Race sequel in South Africa, Curse of Chucky was shot in Canada, and the Danny Trejo starrer Dead in Tombstone was lensed in Romania.
From what we’ve gathered, Mancini will very likely be writing and directing and Dourif is expected to return as the wheelchair-bound Nica with Tilly expected to return as Tiffany.
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.
