The newest talent to join the cast of slasher sequel Cult Of Chucky’ is Grace Lynn Kung (12 Monkeys, The Strain, Odd Squad) according to ComingSoon.net. The sequel as of now is set for release in the Fall on DVD, BLU-Ray and Digital HD with franchise staple Don Mancini, whom directed The Seed Of Chucky’ and Curse Of Chucky’, behind it.
With filming currently being executed in Winnipeg, Canada, a series of photos from set have already been released. Kung joins the cast with a current nomination for a 2017 ACTRA Toronto Award for Outstanding Performance for her portrayal of “Pam Naardlinger” in The Death (and Life) of Carl Naardlinger’ under-her-belt. Starring as well in the sequel will be returning stars Alex Vincent, Brad Dourif, Jennifer Tilly and Fiona Dourif.
“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’ stands as the 7th installment in the “Child’s Play” franchise, a franchise in which kicked out with Tom Holland’s Child’s Play’ in 1988. The franchise starred Hollywood alums Brad Dourif, Jennifer Tilly, John Ritter, Redman, Katherine Heigl and many others. The series followed the storyline of a serial killer of the name of Charles “Chucky” Lee Ray, whom transported his soul into a Good Guy Doll to avoid death. As the body count continued to rise, the Killer remained hope he’d transfer his soul into a human and live again! When that came to be impossible, ol’ Chucky settled down, transferred his old girlfriend (Tiffany -portrayed by Jennifer Tilly) into the body of a doll and had a doll child (Glenda/Glen -portrayed by Billy Boyd). By Curse Of Chucky’ though, Chucky’s family is nearly forgotten other than a cameo by Jennifer Tilly returning to her role as Tiffany reuniting with the killer doll/her old flame once again.
Sorry Jack, Chucky is soooo back!
