Not sure when this is actually going to be released, but it's currently in production in Vancouver. Produced by Seth Grahame-Smith (IT) and David Katzenberg; directed by Norwegian filmmaker Lars Klevberg; written by Tyler Burton Smith. The film stars Aubrey Plaza, Gabriel Bateman, and Brian Tyree Henry. No word yet on who will voice Chucky.
