First Image of Child's Play Reboot Shows Off New Chucky

Things are moving quickly on that MGM reboot of Child's Play apparently, so quickly in fact that a first look image of the red-headed murderous doll, Chucky.

This first look image teases a new version of Chucky, still with those piercing blue eyes and signature carrot top:

Production is underway on the Child's Play reboot which will be directed by Lars Klevberg (Polaroid) from a script by Tyler Burton Smith (Kung Fury). Aubrey Plaza will be playing a mother who gives her son (Gabriel Bateman) a doll for his birthday, and is [obviously] unaware of its more sinister nature, and will also star Brian Tyree Henry.  There is not a release date yet, but we'll let you know when we hear more.

Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always).
