In addition to Mark Hamill voicing Chucky in the new Child's Play movie, the deadly doll is brought to life by a hard-working team of special effects artists and puppeteers that are featured in a new behind-the-scenes video from Orion Pictures.
Directed by Lars Klevberg, written by Tyler Burton Smith, and produced by Seth Graham-Smith and David Katzenberg, Child's Play stars Aubrey Plaza, Gabriel Bateman, Brian Tyree Henry, and Mark Hamill as the voice of Chucky. Orion Pictures will release Child's Play in theaters on June 21st.
Synopsis: "A contemporary re-imagining of the 1988 horror classic, CHILD’S PLAY follows Karen (Aubrey Plaza), a single mother who gifts her son Andy (Gabriel Bateman) a Buddi doll, unaware of its more sinister nature."
The new Child's Play is a reimagining of the 1988 film of the same name directed by Tom Holland from a screenplay he co-wrote along with Don Mancini and John Lafia. According to Mancini, Dourif will reprise his role as the voice of Chucky in the Child's Play TV series that is currently in the works at SYFY.
In the upcoming reimagining, instead of a Good Guys doll, Chucky is a Buddi doll with artificial intelligence capabilities, giving the character a tech-centric side in his reign of terror.
