Series Is Due To Begin This Summer

Jennifer Tilly has confirmed she is joining new series Chucky that recently received a straight-to-series order from Syfy.

Tilly said Chucky will begin filming this summer, but she’s not sure how many episodes of the show her character will be in.

Speaking to American Heart Association, Tilly said –

“I’m so excited. Chucky is very near and dear to my heart. All over the world, everywhere I go, I step off a plane to a country I didn’t even know existed, and they know one word and that word is ‘Chucky,’ and they want a hug.”

“Don Mancini, who created the Chucky 30 years ago is the writer on this series, so it’s the original Chucky. His partner is Nick Antosca, who did ‘Channel Zero,’ which is just a chilling anthology of horror stories, so a little bird told me that I am going to be a part of it.”

The actress played Chucky’s love interest Tiffany Valentine in four of the franchise’s films, including Bride Of Chucky, Seed Of Chucky, Curse Of Chucky, and Cult Of Chucky.

Don Mancini, who has written every movie in the franchise (except the remake), serves as showrunner on Chucky and is executive producing the show with David Kirschner, Nick Antosca, and Harley Peyton.
