We recently debut the Cult of Chucky teaser trailer here at Comicbook.com; however, thanks to EW, we now know more plot details about Cult of Chucky, which you can find out for yourself in the proceeding slideshow.
Warning: The information is organized from basic plot info to mild spoilers, so read at your own discretion!
According to EW, Cult of Chucky will start shooting on January 9th, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
Don Mancini will direct; Mancini has written for every installment in the franchise and also directed the last two films, Seed of Chucky (2004) and Curse of Chucky (2013).
No release date has been set, but word is that Cult of Chucky will be released - Unrated - on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD in time for Halloween 2017.
The big eye-raising detail of Cult of Chucky is that it will bring back a lot of cast members from past installments of the franchise. As always, Brad Dourif will voice Chucky, but other returning cast members will include:
- Fiona Dourif (Curse of Chucky)
- Jennifer Tilly (Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky, Curse of Chucky)
- Alex Vincent (Child's Play 1 - 3, Curse of Chucky)
Cult of Chucky's story will reportedly pick up with Nica (Fiona Dourif) in an insane asylum, convinced that she is responsible for her family's murder in Curse of Chucky, not a possessed doll.
However, when Nica's psychiatrist tries to bring in a "Good Guy" doll to push her therapy, unexplained murders begin to occur around the asylum. As Nica begins to realize she's not crazy, she joins forces with Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), who must battle Chucky's bride Tiffany on the outside, while Nica presumably faces Chucky (and other maniacs?) within the Asylum walls.
Cult of Chucky will be released in time for Halloween 2017.
