Quite frankly after last year’s straight to DVD hit Curse Of Chucky, I think it is safe to say we all are ready and waiting for what’s next for our favorite “Good Guy”. We all know that creator, Don Mancini, has already confirmed another sequel in the works. But what can we expect from said future film? Mancini recently opened up to Crave.Online with an array of ideas and possible plot for Chucky and his next set of shenanigans:
“One of the ideas that I once had… I just have a whole file of different Chucky scenarios. I probably shouldn’t give this away because who knows, I might end up doing it somewhere, but why not?” Mancini said, continuing with: “The notion of Chucky on a train… I thought it would be interesting to do something where you’ve got this archetypal or certainly stereotypical notion of the kid who says, ‘The doll is alive and he’s doing this,’ but the kid befriends an old lady who’s also on the train. Like the old lady is the only one who will listen to this kid, and she’s like, ‘Okay, tell me what you’re thinking. I believe that you believe it and let’s investigate it.’ As the story goes on it turns out that the old lady… and also the old lady has early onset Alzheimers. There’s just something, another reason [why] other people aren’t listening to her either. But she turns out [to be] a charmed confidant of Chucky.”
Well then.. Honestly I think that is a pretty interesting premise for the upcoming production. Now if we could just get Samuel L. Jackson on board just to scream “I’ve had it with this muthafucken doll, on this muthafucken train!” and have them go at it…
Pure gold right there. I hope someone is taking notes.
Now then, onto why you are probably reading this in the first place:
In addition to dishing out the details to the next movie, Mancini expressed his interest for a plot and a fun mash-up with Freddy Krueger. Realistically speaking, there would have to be a lot of negotiations and meetings to make this film happen. But hey, it’s fun to hear what Mancini would do with the characters if given the chance to get them together for an all out brawl!
“I would like to do Freddy and Chucky, just because I think they would be a fun double act. I’m more really interested in the characters. My pitch for Freddy vs. Chucky is Child’s Play on Elm Street. Chucky ends up in some kid’s house on Elm Street, and Chucky and Freddy inevitably meet in the dreamscape. Chucky sleeps. Why not? Chucky sleeps, Chucky dreams. And they have this admiration for each other. But they realize quickly that Elm Street isn’t big enough for the two of them, so in a riff on Dirty Rotten Scoundrels they have a contest: who can kill the most teenagers before the sun comes up?”
Even tho the fact remains that Englund has stated he would never dawn the Freddy makeup again; Several years back Mr. Englund stated that he “Would love to see a ‘Freddy vs Chucky’ flick, as it could be a lot of fun!” I for one would be all kinds of ok with this. So you never know, he may just change his mind.
Whether or not we ever see either one of these scenarios come to life, we can still guarantee that another Chucky film is coming. What are your thoughts on the subject and where would you like to see Chucky go in the next film?
