He’s back! After the longest time of rumors and hints, the newest Chucky movie has finally been announced!
Titled Cult of Chucky, the film is set to begin filming this coming Monday in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
Brad Dourif is set to once again voice the killer doll, while his daughter Fiona is set to reprise her role from Curse of Chucky. Actress Summer H. Howell from Curse of Chucky will also be returning, and franchise veterans Jennifer Tilly and Alex Vincent will be starring alongside them.
You can read the plot for the upcoming film below, as well as watch the announcement trailer below:
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.
Cult of Chucky will be released on home video formats this fall, much like Curse of Chucky in 2013.
