Don Mancini’s Latest Idea for Chucky is to Unleash Him in World War II




Child’s Play creator Don Mancini never fails to surprises fans when it comes to unique twists for possible future Chucky films, and his latest idea might just be the most craziest one them all. Continue reading to find out what’s on his mind.

While talking to Portal 13, Mancini said:

I have files of different ideas and notions, and scenes, and set pieces, and characters, and situations. It’s a constantly evolving thing. I want to be ready. Cult isn’t, I don’t think, the last we’ll see of Chucky, but again, it’s always important to me and David to find a way to reinvent it and keep it fresh. Obviously, I can’t say too much, but we’re already thinking ahead, definitely. I do spend my nights thinking about, “Gosh, what would happen if Tiffany met Andy Barkley?” The two disparate characters from different, far-flung parts of the franchise, what if they collide? I think about these things. I’m a fan as well. I guess it sounds silly or self-serving to say, “I’m a fan of my own franchise,” but I am. I love it. I’m a fan of other franchises, too, and I think when you’re a fan that’s one of the things you do is you just muse on the characters and “what if in this situation…?”, and “what if they met this character?

He’s constantly thinking of unexpected ways to continue the Child’s Play franchise. Talking to Portal 13, Mancini told the site that he thought about throwing Chucky into a World War II setting:

I would love to do a World War II-era Chucky movie; I think would be awesome. You know how in Raiders of the Lost Ark they say, “Hitler’s obsessed with the occult”? That’s the window in. It would be legitimately interesting to see Chucky in that milieu with the iconography and the archetypes of the World War II movie, he could be great.

That’s a pretty insane environment to dump Chucky into, don’t you think? Would you like to see a sequel Cult of Chucky with such a story? Let us know in the comments below.

Dark Universe will keep you updated if we hear anything about a sequel.
