Chucky Remake Placed On Hold

MGM and Universal are currently feuding over the rights to the Child’s Play franchise since there’s been talks for quite some time over a remake in the works. Don Mancini, the man behind the franchise since day one and original writer/director, is holding on to hope and is keeping his exact plans for a reboot a closely guarded secret.

As Mancini was quoted as saying, “I’m personally open to other things but I think that’s what the studio wants” [rather than continuing this series of Chucky films Mancini confirms that the studio is looking for a reboot] “because this movie didn’t do very well so I think the feeling is that Chucky’s viability, his future is in the more straightforward horror vein. I was talking about the rights issues before, I don’t think it’s necessarily what we’ll end up doing as a strict remake. I think we’ll reboot it in the sense that it will just be more conventionally scary and it will only be Chucky and we won’t have Tiffany and Glen, but it won’t necessarily be a strict remake.”
