Brian Tyree Henry Shares Video from Child’s Play Reboot

Posted by October 18, 2018 Comment

While we’re still not sure which side of the dualing Child’s Play / Chucky projects we’re on, there are some interesting updates coming out of the MGM reboot currently filming.

One such thing is a set video shared by Brian Tyree Henry on his Instagram account, where he totally punks the cast of young actors and actresses. It’s kind of adorable:

We don’t know a whole lot about this remake other than the basics:

*Henry is leading the cast, along with Gabriel Bateman as Andy Barclay, and Aubrey Plaza as Andy’s mother.

*Tyler Burton Smith (Kung Fury 2) wrote the script.

*Lars Klevberg is directing.

*David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith (IT) are producing.

*Chucky will be a robot doll this time around, one who apparently “gets hacked by a factory worker to remove its limitations and make it a killer”.

We don’t have an expected release date yet, but we DO have a poster for Child’s Play featuring our first look at the new version of the murderous doll, Chucky:
