The 7th film for the “Chucky” franchise is in the works!
Universal 1440 Entertainment has officially confirmed that production on the upcoming horror sequel, titled “Cult of Chucky”, is set to begin in Canada on 9th January. The film is written and directed by Don Mancini, who co-wrote the original film and both wrote and directed the last 2 movies in the series – “Seed of Chucky” (2004) and “Curse of Chucky” (2013).
“It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly 30 years since Chucky first terrified moviegoers in ‘Child’s Play’. Since then the films have generated millions in worldwide box-office revenue. Now Chucky’s back with more scores to settle in his trademark twisted style, and you can bet he won’t stop until he gets his revenge,” said General Manager and Executive Vice President of Universal 1440 Entertainment, Glenn Ross.
The official plot for “Cult of Chucky” is as follows:
“Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past 4 years, Nica Pierce (played by 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 (played by 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 (played by 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.”
