'Child's Play' Receives an R-Rating; Producer Says it Will Be Intense and Gory

We are little over two months away from the release of Orion Pictures‘ remake of Tom Holland and Don Mancini’s classic 1988 Child’s Play movie, directed by Lars Klevberg (Polaroid).

Producer Seth Grahame-Smith just gave us a little update on Child’s Play. According to Grahame-Smith, the movie is intense, gory, and rated R.

Grahame-Smith shared:

We sort of lean into more of the AI/Kaslan story and hint at a Chucky that is driven by something different than he is in the original series when he’s Charles Lee Ray and he’s just a truly psychopathic killer in the body of a doll. [Also, there is] the mother/son story, the emotional component of the movie, which I feel like the movie really delivers.

He then revealed:

And then above all that, just the intensity, the gore, the fact that the movie is rated R, that it really does go there when it goes there.”

The producer finishes with:

I think the movie looks big, is much bigger than a lot of movies that are our size – very affordable movie, we are. But we had big ambitions. Those are, I’d say, the primary things we’re going for.

This time around, Chucky the killer doll is voiced by the one and only Mark Hamill (Star Wars). Watch the official trailer to get a taste of what’s to come.

Synopsis: “Child’s Play follows a mother (Plaza) who gives her son (Bateman) a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature.

So far the cast is as follows: Aubrey Plaza and Brian Tyree Henry have been cast as leads, along with child actor Gabriel Bateman (Lights Out) as our young protagonist Andy Barclay.

The new Child’s Play movie stalks theatres on June 21st, 2019.
