Lars Klevberg, director of last year’s Child’s Play reboot, still wants to make a sequel to his reimagining of the 1988 horror classic.
“It would be amazing to pull the crew and the actors back for another one, but MGM needs to get their stuff together and do it. It’s all there,” Klevberg shared on Instagram (via Bloody Disgusting).
However, despite Klevberg’s enthusiasm to return for another instalment, the recent reboot wasn’t a huge success for Orion/MGM as the film brought in a worldwide box office total of $45 million on a reported $10 million budget – meaning it may be unlikely that we will see a follow-up in the near future.
Although the future of the franchise on the big-screen remains unclear, the series is set to make a transition to the small screen as it was revealed earlier this year that Child’s Play creator Don Mancini is developing a TV series for Syfy with Brad Dourif confirmed to once again be returning to voice the titular doll Chucky.
