The film, written by Tyler Burton Smith, will be directed by Polaroids Lars Klevberg and produced by It producers David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith. Aaron Schmidt is on board as executive producer.
Aubrey Plaza and Brian Tyree Henry are on board the Child’s Play reboot
Plaza is expected to be playing mum with Henry acting as a detective.
The contemporary reboot is believed to follow a group of kids (a la It and Stranger Things), and a technologically-advanced doll that enters their world. The original 1988 movie followed a serial killer named Charles Lee Ray who casts a spell that traps his soul inside the body of a Good Guy doll named Chucky, which is then given to a young boy.
Let’s hope this is a good move for the franchise!
