7th Chucky Film In The Works, Cast Returning


It took 25 years for all six Chucky films to come together in one collection. When they finally did, they won the Saturn Award for Best DVD/BD Collection Release. Of course, Chucky: The Complete Collection was the first time the latest film, Curse of Chucky, was available at all. The straight to video entry was so successful, that Chucky creator Don Mancini confirms he is writing a seventh.

“I’m in the middle of it,” Mancini said the night of the Saturn Awards.

The voice of Chucky himself, Brad Dourif, and Curse star Fiona Dourif, joined Mancini at the Awards show. Curse introduced the character of Nica (Fiona Dourif), who is expected to return if her father is to be believed.

“I’m allowed to say that it’s hush hush, but will have to do with her,” Brad Dourif said.

When she won the role of Nica in Curse, Fiona had no idea that she could be involved in multiple Chucky films. “I’m thrilled to be a part of the franchise,” she said. “I’ve always loved it. I’ve always identified with it so it’s been really fun.”

Mancini confirmed that he’s writing a role for Nica in the new script. “I may have even said too much already by saying that Chucky torments Fiona again,” Mancini said. “So I shouldn’t say anything more but I think that people who liked Curse will dig the new one.”

Curse was the first Chucky film since 2004’s Seed of Chucky. With its success, Mancini expects to be making the seventh film far more quickly. “I’m hopeful,” he said. “You never know. I would never say I know anything definitely ever but it looks good.”

Having created Chucky in 1988’s Child’s Play and written every film in the series, Mancini directed Seed and Curse. He expects to direct the seventh also. “I hope so. That’s my plan.”

The titles of the films changed from Child’s Play with 1998’s Bride of Chucky. After Bride of, Seed of and Curse of, Mancini has thought of another clever title which he is not revealing yet. “I have but I can’t say. Can’t say, can’t say.”

Curse of Chucky, and Chucky: The Complete Collection are available on DVD and Blu-ray now.
