Young actor Gabriel Bateman (Lights Out, American Gothic), Parks and Rec alum Aubrey Plaza, and Atlanta star Brian Tyree Henry are set to star in MGM’s Child’s Play remake for Orion Pictures. Bateman will take on the role as Andy, Plaza will play Andy’s mom Karen, and Henry is Mike. Those characters originated in the 1988 version which went on to gross $44 million worldwide, spawned six sequels,  and created one of the most well-known characters in the horror genre.

 

Polaroid helmer Lars Klevberg is set to direct the film, which will mark Klevberg’s second feature. The plot, based on the original, follows a mother (Plaza) who gives her son (Bateman) a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature.

I can't Aubrey Plaza seriously enough to take this movie seriously.

 

I think she is hilarious so I can't move past comedy with her.

Mess :skull: I thought Dom had like total ownership of the Chucky and the films, but I guess not? I can't imagine him being happy about this regardless if he's not involved.

Aubrey Plaza playing a mother and in a horror film? I assume it will be dark comedy/horror. I was hoping it would go back it's roots, a straight up horror.

Eww what is with that ugly chucky face? He didn't need plastic surgery. God I hate when they start changing features of an already iconic doll.

TBH I would like if they made this movie actually SCARY. Child's Play is not scary at ALL, mainly because of that ridiculous loony voice that I can't take seriously. It's too comedic for me to take it seriously as a horror movie, I've never liked it.

I'm honestly waiting for a creepy, genuinely scary doll movie where the doll is actually alive a la Slappy from Goosebumps, not Annabelle where the demon is simply holding the doll or The Boy where it wasn't even a haunted doll :rip:

I thought they were shifting away from that look altogether? This is Dollar General Chucky.

Brad's voice acting as Chucky is incredible tbh
