The creator of the “Child’s Play” film franchise is chiming in on the first look at the revamped Chucky.
Shortly after the first look at the new “Child’s Play” remake (starring Aubrey Plaza, Gabriel Bateman and Brian Tyree Henry), writer/director Don Mancini took to Twitter to share his thoughts.
Mancini — who wrote the screenplay for the 1988 horror film about a homicidal doll — kept it simple by posting a meme of Mariah Carey holding a sign that reads “I don’t know her.”
He captioned the photo, “THIS IS ALL I HAVE TO SAY ON THAT SUBJECT.”
In addition to creating Chucky, Mancini also wrote and directed three sequels: 2004’s “Seed of Chucky”, 2013’s “Curse of Chucky” and 2017’s “Cult of Chucky”.
Mancini was approached to be involved with the upcoming remake but declined, expressing concern that the upcoming reboot would “muddy” the brand.
