Child’s Play Remake Continues to Poke Fun at Toy Story in New Promo Image
Is anybody in the mood for some roasted marshmallows?
By Chris Morse
The upcoming Child’s Play remake is continuing its good-natured ribbing of Toy Story 4 in light of the two films’ shared release date. The last promotional image to do this came a few weeks ago and showed Chucky walking away from his latest victim, Toy Story’s Woody, in an art style mimicking that movie’s very own poster. That's certainly one way to get the attention of moviegoers.
Today, the fun continued in a sequel of sorts with another image showing the killer doll quite literally roasting the competition, namely everybody’s favorite toy pup, Slinky. Have a look at the image below.
In Child’s Play, a mother gives her son a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature. The cast includes Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation, Legion) as the mother, Karen, Gabriel Bateman (Light’s Out) as her son, Andy, and Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta) as Greg, a detective who will be investigating the mysterious deaths surrounding the doll. Chucky is voiced by the legendary Mark Hamill.
The film is directed by Lars Klevberg, who is known for his horror film, Polaroid, with a script penned by Quantum Break and Kung Fury 2 writer Tyler Burton Smith. KatzSmith Productions’ David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith (Stephen King's It) are on board as producers with the film slated to arrive early this summer on June 21st, 2019.
