A remake of the famed Don Mancini 1988 slasher film about a mother who gives her son Andy a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its sinister nature. In the original it was possessed by the soul of a serial killer, but the new take reimagines it as a robotic Chucky (with wi-fi) that gets hacked into and programmed to kill by a disgruntled toy company employee. Aubrey Plaza and Brian Tyree Henry lead the cast of the new take which made headlines when Mancini expressed that he is VERY unhappy with it and is instead creating his own fan film called “Charles” which Luis Serrano directs and is aiming for a release in May – a month before this opens.

Mark Hamill has been announced as the voice of Chucky in the upcoming “Child’s Play” reboot for Orion Films.


The news was announced at Orion’s panel at WonderCon this evening and fans reportedly howled with excitement when Hamill appeared on overhead video screens with a taped greeting. He steps into a role made famous by Brad Dourif in all the films released to date

Hamill has been an accomplished voice actor for decades now, most famously as The Joker in numerous animated series, films and video games based on the “Batman” franchise. He’s also provided voice work for numerous Marvel shows, Studio Ghibli films, animated comedies like “The Simpsons” and “Robot Chicken,” and countless video games.

The story follows a mother (Aubrey Plaza) who gives her son (Gabriel Bateman) a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature. Brian Tyree Henry, Beatrice Kitsos, Ty Consiglio and Carlease Burke also star in the remake which switches out the supernatural element (a possessed doll) of the original for one of a malfunctioning killer robot doll.
