We learned earlier this summer that the Child’s Play franchise was getting a boost in the form of a direct-to-DVD sequel, and today Universal announced that production has commenced on the sixth entry in the franchise, Curse of Chucky. Director Don Mancini - who has written every single Child’s Play film and directed 2004’s Seed of Chucky - takes the helm as Chucky reportedly wreaks havoc on a family that has regrouped for a funeral. Brad Dourif returns to voice the titular demon doll, and the cast for Curse of Chucky includes Fiona Dourif (The Master), A Martinez (Longmire), Danielle Bisutti (CSI: Miami), and Brennan Elliott (Double Jeopardy).
Hit the jump to read the full press release. Curse of Chucky will be released straight-to-DVD sometime next year.
