CHILD'S PLAY Reboot Unveils Our First Look At The New Chucky Doll As Filming Gets Underway

Filming is currently underway on the Child's Play remake in Vancouver, and we have our first look at the revamped Chucky doll.

This updated take on the murderous little shit looks quite similar to the original, but he's not expected to have the same backstory. In the '80s movie the doll was possessed by the spirit of a serial killer (Brad Dourif), but director Lars Klevberg is remaining tight-lipped about this Chucky's origin. “Our Chucky will be our Chucky and he will be presented when the movie comes out,” he teased.

We also have some more casting news. Gabriel Bateman (Lights Out, American Gothic) will star as little Andy, whose mother Karen (Aubrey Plaza) gives him the doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature. Atlanta actor Brian Tyree Henry will play Mike, the detective who gets involved when Chucky begins his killing spree.



What do you guys think of our new-look Chucky? Sound off below.
