So, we must say that, despite the movies deteriorating in quality, we here at FTN still have something of a soft spot for Chucky, so we’re mildly optimistic about a new movie. I think. Are we? Hello…
Anyway, the guys at bloodydisgusting have posted the image above, and they reckon it’s the look of Chucky, slightly re-imagined, in the new movie Curse Of Chucky directed by Don Mancini
The site says: “The image was discovered on Fiona Dourif’s Instagram with the caption “It’s my head on a soundtrack!” The pic is of a CD, allegedly the film’s soundtrack, with a cover displaying the title card, Fiona tied to a chair, and our favorite killer trapped in a Good Guy Doll!”
Fiona Dourif is the daughter of the voice of Chucky and the man who played Charles Lee Ray in the first movie before he, em, became a doll, Brad Dourif. The movie is aiming for a Halloween release.
Curse of Chucky stars Fiona Dourif (The Master, “True Blood,” “Deadwood”), A Martinez (“Longmire,” “General Hospital”), Danielle Bisutti (Get Smart, “CSI: Miami”) and Brennan Elliott (Flight 93, Double Jeopardy). Brad Dourif (The Lord of the Rings, Dune) once again returns to provide the voice of Chucky, the pint-sized doll possessed by the spirit of notorious serial killer Charles Lee Ray, who returns to settle some unfinished business.
“Nica (Fiona Dourif) is grieving over the gruesome suicide of her mother when her domineering older sister Barb (Danielle Bisutti) arrives with her young family in tow to help settle their mother’s affairs. As the sisters butt heads over Nica’s plans for the future, Barb’s young daughter comforts herself with a grinning, red-haired talking doll named Chucky (voiced again by Brad Dourif) that recently arrived mysteriously in the mail. But as a string of brutal murders begins to terrorize the household, Nica suspects the doll may hold the key to the bloodshed. What she doesn’t know is that Chucky has a personal score to settle. He’s determined to finish a job he started more than 20 years earlier, and this time he’s going to see it through to the bloody and shocking end.”
