In an interview with Page Six, Jennifer Tilly confirmed that she will be appearing in the “Chucky” series, based on the popular “Toy Killer” franchise.
“I am very excited,” the actress said on the site. “Don Mancini, who created Chucky 30 years ago, is the screenwriter for this series. It will be like the original Chucky. And a little bird told me that I will be a part [do projeto]. “
However, it is not yet clear how the series will connect to the original franchise.
On top of that, Devon Sawa (‘Premonition’) has joined the cast of the ‘Chucky’ series, which will continue the universe of the classic ‘Killer Toy’ franchise.
The cast will also include Zackary Arthur (‘Transparent’), Teo Briones (‘Ratched’), Bjorgvin Arnarson (‘PEN15’) and Alyvia Alyn Lind (‘Together and Mixed’).
Remember, Brad Dourif will double Chucky again.
Check out the official synopsis:
After the appearance of a classic Chucky doll at a used car sale in a suburban neighborhood, an idyllic American town is plunged into chaos after a series of gruesome murders revealing the hypocrisies and secrets of its inhabitants . Meanwhile, the arrival of enemies – and allies – from Chucky’s past threatens to expose the truth behind the dead, as well as the demonic doll’s origins.
The series debuts on SyFy in 2021.
Watch the first teaser:
In an interview with Syfy Wire, Don Mancini gave new details about the series, revealing that the iconic villain will have a different purpose in the new production.
“With this series, our mission is to preserve the tense atmosphere of the original film. But, at the same time, keep expanding the plot we’ve built over the seven movies we’ve released over the past 30 years. I think fans will love the new characters we’ve introduced into production as well as the return of other well-known characters. Not only will it be Chucky, but we will also have the return of other characters that fans will want to see again. Chances are they will show up. “
He adds, “I think people will find it interesting that Chucky uses his skills. It’s important to give Chucky new weapons, strategies, goals, and targets. The character will have a different purpose in the series – something that has never been seen before. ”
Recall that Jennifer Tilly has already confirmed her return to production. Brad Dourif, who has voiced the villain in all of the franchise’s films, is also returning.
