Child’s Play has been produced by David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith under their KatzSmith banner, whose film adaptation of Stephen King’s It has earned over $700million worldwide. Aaron Schmidt and Chris Ferguson executive produced the project. The film is directed by new talent Lars Klevberg (director of the forthcoming horror chiller Polaroid), and written by Tyler Burton Smith, based on the original script.

Aubrey Plaza stars as a single mother who buys her son Andy (Gabriel Bateman) a Buddi doll, unaware of its more sinister nature. Chucky, the doll, is voiced by Mark Hamill, who says of his new role, “I can’t wait to bring such an iconic character to life, and present him in a way you’ve never seen before.” Also appearing are Brian Tyree Henry as the cop on the trail of the miniature murderer and Tim Matheson [Animal House], as the founder of the Kaslan Corporation, which produces the Buddi dolls.

Child’s Play will be released in the UK and Ireland on 21st June 2019.
