Universal City, California, September 5, 2012 – The sixth installment of the frightening Child’s Play thriller franchise, Curse of Chucky, begins principal photography in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, on September 5, 2012.  The franchise comes full circle as Toyland’s most gruesome serial killer returns in a horrifying all-new movie from Universal 1440 Entertainment, a production entity of Universal Studios HomeEntertainment. .


“Since his introduction to audiences in Child’s Play almost a quarter-century ago, Chucky has haunted the nightmares of a generation of moviegoers,” said Glenn Ross, General Manager and Executive Vice President, Universal 1440 Entertainment. “Returning to his roots in one of the most provocative horror franchises, this new sequel will shock longtime fans of the series and newcomers alike.”


Curse of Chucky stars Fiona Dourif (The Master, “True Blood,” “Deadwood”), A Martinez (“Longmire,” “General Hospital”), Danielle Bisutti (Get Smart, “CSI: Miami”) and Brennan Elliott (Flight 93Double Jeopardy). Brad Dourif (The Lord of the RingsDune) once again returns to provide the voice of Chucky, the pint-sized doll possessed by the spirit of notorious serial killer Charles Lee Ray, who returns to settle some unfinished business.


The film is directed by Don Mancini, the Child’s Play franchise creator who has written or co-written each of the previous movies and was the director of Seed of Chucky.  Also an integral part of the Child’s Play franchise from inception, David Kirschner (An American TailHocus PocusBride of Chucky) produces from a screenplay by Mancini.  The film’s top-flight production team includes special-effects wizard Tony Gardner (ZombielandSeed of Chucky), production designer Craig Sandells (Mother’s Day) and costume designer Patricia J. Henderson (ATM).



Nica (Fiona Dourif) is grieving over the gruesome suicide of her mother when her domineering older sister Barb (Danielle Bisutti) arrives with her young family in tow to help settle their mother’s affairs. As the sisters butt heads over Nica’s plans for the future, Barb’s young daughter comforts herself with a grinning, red-haired talking doll named Chucky (voiced again by Brad Dourif) that recently arrived mysteriously in the mail. But as a string of brutal murders begins to terrorize the household, Nica suspects the doll may hold the key to the bloodshed. What she doesn’t know is that Chucky has a personal score to settle. He’s determined to finish a job he started more than 20 years earlier, and this time he’s going to see it through to the bloody and shocking end.

I actually enjoyed the seed of chucky, I think it's because of the nostalgy these movies give me; child's play was the first horror movie who gave me nightmares for the rest of my childhood....

[QUOTE=PrincessJenna89;938686]Awesome! I can't wait. I love Chucky and have all the dolls. Not too fond of the Seed of Chucky though. Too much comedy when its supposed to be horror. Glad to see Chucky get back to his roots. :)[/QUOTE] Completely agree I hated Seed Of Chucky so can't wait for this.
