13:00 - Child's Play TV Series in Development

Thanks to everyone who sent this in.

Mancini tells Bloody Disgusting exclusively that he and franchise producer David Kirschner are currently developing a “Child’s Play” television series!

Mancini tells us that the series was “deliberately set up at end of the last movie,” while further adding that the “tone is dark and disturbing.”

“We plan to use Child’s Play in the title,” Mancini explained. “We want to definitely signal that we are going dark, darker than ever before. It’s going to be very creepy.”

Using the original “Child’s Play” title is exciting because it signals that the series will once again involve kids. Oh, and Mancini confirmed that Dourif will once again return to voice Chucky!
