Looks like actor Devon Sawa is going to be facing a killer doll soon...
...We've all been waiting for more details on SyFy/USA Network's upcoming Chucky TV show from Child's Play creator Don Mancini and Channel Zero creator Nick Antosca, and today via Collider, we've learned that some of the cast has been set, which includes Devon Sawa (Final Destination), along with new details about the plot!
In Chucky, via the site:
"The series begins when a vintage Chucky doll turns up at a suburban yard sale and an idyllic American town is thrown into chaos as a series of horrifying murders begin to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets. Meanwhile, the arrival of enemies -- and allies -- from Chucky’s past threatens to expose the truth behind the killings, as well as the demon doll’s untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster."
Sawa joins Zackary Arthur (Transparent), Teo Briones (Ratched), Bjorgvin Arnarson (PEN15) and Alyvia Alyn Lind (The Young and the Restless) playing the four young leads. Brad Dourif (who voices Chucky in the Child's Play franchise) and Jennifer Tilly (Tiffany from later films including Bride of Chucky), are both reportedly reprising their roles as well.
Series creator Mancini is writing Chucky and will direct the first episode in addition to serving as showrunner. He and Antosca will also executive produce the series with Child's Play franchise producer David Kirschner and Harley Peyton (Twin Peaks).
While we wait for more news, here's the teaser which Syfy released last year!
