Direct-to-DVD Sequel CURSE OF CHUCKY Begins Principal Photography

Full cast listing revealed.

The sixth installment of the ‘Child’s Play’ franchise, ‘Curse of Chucky,’ has commenced principal photography in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The franchise comes full circle as Toyland’s most gruesome serial killer returns in a horrifying all-new movie from Universal 1440 Entertainment, a production entity of Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

“Since his introduction to audiences in ‘Child’s Play’ almost a quarter-century ago, Chucky has haunted the nightmares of a generation of moviegoers,” said Glenn Ross, General Manager and Executive Vice President, Universal 1440 Entertainment. “Returning to his roots in one of the most provocative horror franchises, this new sequel will shock longtime fans of the series and newcomers alike.”

‘Curse of Chucky’ stars Fiona Dourif (‘The Master,’ ‘True Blood,’ ‘Deadwood’), A Martinez (‘Longmire,’ ‘General Hospital’), Danielle Bisutti (‘Get Smart,’ ‘CSI: Miami’) and Brennan Elliott (‘Flight 93,’ ‘Double Jeopardy’). Brad Dourif (‘The Lord of the Rings,’ ‘Dune’) once again returns to provide the voice of Chucky, the pint-sized doll possessed by the spirit of notorious serial killer Charles Lee Ray, who returns to settle some unfinished business.

The film is directed by Don Mancini, the ‘Child’s Play’ franchise creator who has written or co-written each of the previous movies and was the director of ‘Seed of Chucky.’ Also an integral part of the ‘Child’s Play’ franchise from inception, David Kirschner (‘An American Tail,’ ‘Hocus Pocus,’ ‘Bride of Chucky’) produces from a screenplay by Mancini. The film’s top-flight production team includes special-effects wizard Tony Gardner (‘Zombieland,’ ‘Seed of Chucky’), production designer Craig Sandells (‘Mother’s Day’) and costume designer Patricia J. Henderson (‘ATM’).
