“If it exists, it will be remade.” So goes the saying I just made up right now, but it is applicable nonetheless. Over the century-plus that film has been a medium, there have been more remakes than you can shake a stick at. Some have been fantastic and some have been terrible, but they are remakes nonetheless.

One genre that tends to get more reboots and sequels than others is the horror genre. You need only look at mainline slasher films like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street to know what I’m talking about here. Now, you can count yet another film to the list of horror films that is being rebooted.

According to a new report from Collider, MGM is developing a remake to the original film. On board to direct is Lars Klevberg, whose film Polaroid has yet to yet, and set to write the script is Kung Fury and Quantum Break (video game) scribe Tyler Burton Smith. Serving as producers are David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith, who both recently brought IT to the big screen.

Child’s Play will reportedly play out like a contemporary Stranger Things, with its story involving a group of kids and a technologically-advanced doll. Yup, “technologically-advanced.” That means this isn’t going to be your run-of-the-mill Raggedy Ann doll ripoff. It also means that Chucky will have capabilities we’ve never seen before. And speaking of Chucky, it’s possible (though we don’t know for sure) that they’ll change the name of the doll.

What do you think of the possibility of a Child’s Play remake? Let us know your thoughts down below!
