Filming for the highly anticipated seventh Child’s Play film Cult of Chucky is well underway in the cold city of Winnipeg with a slated release for a straight to VOD and DVD platform in October of this year. With Don Mancini back playing master of puppets with everyone’s favorite “Good Guy”, and an array of Chucky alumni returning from previous films, fans of the tiny terror are ready for playtime with their favorite tiny terror! And just recently, we got word of another horror vet actress entering Chucky’s playing grounds…
Star of The Cube 2: Hypercube, and more recently FX’s The Strain, the beauty Grace Lynn Kung has joined the Cult of Chucky cast! Working alongside other cast members, Fiona Dourif, Alex Vincent, Jennifer Tilly, Summer H. Howell, Zak Santiago, and of course on-screen legend Brad Dourif returning as the voice of Chucky, this sequel is shaping up to be one hell of a ride for the Chuckster and his plastic bride Tiff.
In case you missed it, here’s the official synopsis for the upcoming movie.
“Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic “tool” to facilitate his patients’ group sessions — an all-too-familiar “Good Guy” doll with an innocently smiling face — a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky’s now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child’s Play, races to Nica’s aid. But to save her he’ll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.”
Also, just for shits and giggles, here’s a shot from behind the scenes of the film starring a headless Chucky. Stay tuned to iHorror for more Chucky updates coming soon!
