ShockTillYouDrop.com talked exclusively to Don Mancini and David Kirschner about Tuesday’s release of Child’s Play: Chucky’s 20th Birthday Edition on DVD and naturally, talk turned to the remake that is in the works. Here’s a clip:
Naturally, I don’t want to say too much. A lot of the Chuck mythology was reworked by David and Tom Holland – specifically the voodoo aspect but also the specific detail of Chucky being possessed by the soul of a serial killer, which is distinct from my script where he was the living embodiment of the kid’s Id. All of the stuff in the movie is such an intrinsic part of the mythology I think it would be misguided to stray from that too far. We have ways and ideas of making that darker. Darker, we believe, than the original movie.
