Lord Of The Rings star Brad Dourif voiced Chucky in all seven films; it remains to be seen who will take over the role.

This will be the first Chucky movie to get released by MGM since the original.

Plot details on the current Child's Play are thin, but the upcoming movie appears to be a remake and not a continuation of the series. Tom Holland directed that horror classic, which starred Alex Vincent as Andy Barclay, Catherine Hicks as his mother, and Chris Sarandon as a detective. All of the sequels were released by Universal. Sources say that MGM and the producers saw Polaroid and Klevberg won the job on the strength of that film.
