3. Chucky 7 (also known as Child’s Play 7)
Directed by: Don Mancini
Release date: To Be Announced
An upcoming sequel in the long running Child’s Play franchise is in the works. Director Don Mancini has confirmed the movie to be in pre-production, periodically providing updates via social media. Mancini has written the scripts for every film in the franchise, and has previously directed the prior two films.
Not a whole lot is known about the story. All we know is Brad Dourif will be returning to voice Chucky the killer doll, and Fiona Dourif is coming back to reprise her Curse of Chucky role. Here’s the imdb plot synopsis listed for the film:
"“Chucky returns after the events of ‘Curse of Chucky’ to continue terrorizing his wheelchair-prone human victim, Nica. Meanwhile, the killer doll has some scores to settle with his old enemies, with the help of his former wife.”"
Bride of Chucky and Seed of Chucky were not of the highest quality when it comes to horror movies. But the sixth film, Curse of Chucky, was surprisingly quite enjoyable. If Mancini keeps it up, we could have another solid Chucky film.
An official release date isn’t yet listed for Chucky 7. It is tentatively scheduled to premiere sometime in 2017, likely closer to the end of the year.
