Well it's about time. The US Navy needs another big, dumb, cinematic recruitment advert. Hmmm. Shame Tony Scott's back. I wish he could dial back that attention deficit editing. The writer of Bad Boys 2 is involved which suggests extremely dumb but fun action scenes that will... wait for it... TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY! I hope Val Kilmer can make an appearance. And the ghost of Goose. Heck why not?
'original creators Don Mancini and David Kirschner are cooking up a remake that will stray from the more satiric leanings of recent sequels - the last one featured John Waters, after all – and go for "a darker and scarier retelling of the original film, but one that will offer new twists and turns."'
'This new episode in the long-running franchise will be titled Revenge Of Chucky, and will again focus on the killer doll's immediate family, in a similar vein to Bride Of Chucky and Seed Of Chucky.
As for the remake, Dourif indicated that original writer Don Mancini is still working on script, with the theme thought to be a lot lighter and comedic than the original.'
Well I hope they're wrong about the remake. I want to see Child's Play back to it's dark roots. I know it seems silly and ripe for comedic treatment but to me Chucky is still a little psycho and a terrifying alternative to Woody and Buzz coming alive when you're not watching.
What do you think readers? Does this news spell the end of the world or are you as excited as I am?
