Filming begins on the latest Child’s Play movie! Chucky is back!

September 7th, 2012 by Owen Quinn Comments

Just when you thought it was safe to buy a doll, Chucky’s back!

Filming has commenced on the sixth instalment of the horror franchise which features a doll possessed by the spirit of a serial killer.

Principal photography has begun in Canada and can you believe it’s been twenty five years since the first movie? Glenn Ross has promised fans will be shocked by the new movie which will return Chucky to his roots rather than the more extreme sequels which took us to such realms as doll sex and pregnancy.

Brad Dourif will return to voice him once again, and joining him will be Fiona Dourif (True Blood, Deadwood), A. Martinez, Danielle Busitti (CSI Miami) and Brennan Elliott. Don Mancini will direct; he created the franchise and has been involved in all the sequels in one way or another. If they take Chucky back to his scary beginnings then we may have a new generation of Chucky lovers.

He has an unhealthy interest in Doctor Who, classic TV and Star Wars, he also hangs around with the Emerald Garrison far toooo much. Is it any wonder he fits in at FTN so well? Find Owen at the
