News: Aubrey Plaza and Brian Tyree Henry in Talks to Head Cast of Child's Play Reboot

With Lars Klevberg’s reboot of Child’s Play moving forward at MGM, casting rumors are now beginning. It’s looking like the director and the studio are pursuing Aubrey Plaza to play the mother of the lead kid, and Brian Tyree Henry (best known for Atlanta) to be the lead detective pursuing the doll.

The story seems to revolve around a new doll, or a new take on Chucky who’s being characterized as a “Robot Doll”. Where all of this goes remains to be seen, but it is quite interesting.
