A sixth entry in the Child’s Play franchise will go straight to DVD, it has been confirmed.
Moviehole say that Universal Home Entertainment is moving forward with Curse of Chucky.
Don Mancini will write and produce the sequel which will take the series back to its “earlier, darker routes”.
A synopsis for the movie reads: “Chucky arrives to wreck havoc within a family that’s regrouped for a funeral. In the wake of her mother’s passing, a young woman – in a wheelchair since birth – is forced to put up with her sister, brother-in-law, niece and their nanny as they say their goodbyes to mother. When people start turning up dead, the fearless Nica discovers the culprit might be a “strange doll” she was sent a couple of days earlier.”
Brad Dourif is returning yet again to voice the titular knife-wielder, but no other casting has been announced.
