Child’s Play creator wants to bring Chucky to Freddy Krueger’s Elm Street


While prepping ‘Cult of Chucky’ for thirsty fans, Don Mancini is talking about mixing the worlds of ‘Child’s Play’ and ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’.

Child’s Play may be getting sleepy.

According to Screen Rant, horror could see another mashup. With Cult of Chucky coming in less than two months, Child’s Play mania is here again. With series creator, Don Mancini, hard at work on the upcoming film, Chucky is about to be back and better than ever. And possibly, the demented doll could end up dreaming on Elm Street.

Here’s what Mancini is saying about bringing the worlds of A Nightmare on Elm Street and Child’s Play together in the latest edition of the Necronomicast:

"“I’ve talked about this a lot over the years and it’s actually an idea that I think is cool and doable. It’s just… it would require arranging all the legal red tape between two different studios. But I think Chucky versus Freddy would be awesome. Because they both have distinct personalities, and they both talk, they would be a really fun double act. My idea for the movie is to do it as a horror movie version of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. It’s called Child’s Play on Elm Street. Chucky ends up in the bedroom of a house on Elm Street. And Freddy meets him there. And they’re, like, fans of each other. So they have this rapport. But then they realize Elm Street isn’t big enough for the two of them. It only can contain one killer.”"

“Child’s Play on Elm Street”?…I’ve never heard a more perfect sentence.

While some may laugh at the idea, I freaking love this. Thinking about the two arguing about who gets to kill who sounds, while comic book in concept, like fantastic fun. And using the idea that Chucky doesn’t sleep (does he?), is perfect for an Elm Street film. While it will NEVER happen, I’d watch this. Mancini, make it happen!

And this wouldn’t be the first time two modern horror icon have met up. After being in development hell more than a decade, Freddy vs Jason came in 2003 to mixed reviews. But after looking forward to the release for years, like all us horror heads, I love Freddy vs Jason. Sure, it could be better, but its fun and light — a good time every time. While we may never see this happen, you can see Chucky again in little over a month.

Cult of Chucky stars Fiona DourifJennifer Tilly and Brad Dourif. Series creator Don Mancini directs, with scripting by Mancini. Universal Studios is producing and distributing. The seventh Child’s Play film debuts Oct. 3.
