Chucky will return in Cult of Chucky! The seventh entry in the Child’s Play series begins shooting this coming Monday in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Watch the announcement video (revealed by EW) above.
Series creator Don Mancini - who has written every installment in the franchise and directed the last two - is once again at the helm as writer and director, and he’s bringing back several key cast members.
Brad Dourif will provide the voice of Chucky, as he’s done in all six films. He’ll be joined by Jennifer Tilly (Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky) as Tiffany, along with Alex Vincent (Child’s Play, Child’s Play 2), Fiona Dourif (Curse of Chucky), and Summer H. Howell (Curse of Chucky).
Here is the official synopsis:
Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic “tool” to facilitate his patients’ group sessions — an all-too-familiar “Good Guy” doll with an innocently smiling face — a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky’s now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child’s Play, races to Nica’s aid. But to save her he’ll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.
