The sixth installment of the “Child’s Play” saga started principle photography today. The next deadly play-date with the evil doll is a straight to DVD release that Universal hopes will pump new blood into the franchise through their Home Entertainment division. This new story will take Chucky back to the earlier darker days of “Child’s Play” before the more popular campy flicks “Seed” and “Bride”. 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 Tail,Hocus Pocus, Bride of Chucky) produces from a screenplay by Mancini. The film's production team includes special-effects guru Tony Gardner (Zombieland, Seed of Chucky), production designer Craig Sandells (Mother's Day) and costume designerPatricia J. Henderson (ATM).
“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 93, Double Jeopardy). Brad Dourif (The Lord of the Rings, Dune) 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.
