Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
It wasn't too long ago that we all learned of MGM gearing up to reboot CHILD'S PLAY. The film has already gained some momentum as we just recently learned that Aubrey Plaza is set to play Andy's mother, and Brian Tyree Henry will be taking on the role of Detective Mike Norris. LIGHTS OUT star Gabriel Bateman has been cast as young Andy. Lars Klevberg directs.
The official trailer arrived not long ago (see below) and a brand new image has arrived of Chucky, featuring him holding his signature knife.
"Child’s Play follows a mother (Plaza) who gives her son (Bateman) a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature."
The original 1988 film was directed by Tom Holland from a screenplay written by Don Mancini. It starred Catherine Hicks, Dinah Manoff, Chris Sarandon, Alex Vincent, and Brad Dourif as the voice of Chucky. The remake is directed by Lars Klevberg (POLAROID) from a screenplay written by KUNG FURY 2 writer Tyler Burton Smith with STEPHEN KING'S IT producers David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith producing.
The CHILD'S PLAY reboot will hit theaters on June 21st, 2019.
