ELI SAVES CHILDS PLAY 5?
Could it be true? One?s a little hesitant to post it since it?s been no more than a day rumour turned debunked one in the past, but there?s a good chance Don Mancini?s long-planned but seemingly dead in the water ?Child?s Play 5?, or ?Seed of Chucky? as the script implies ? is back on. Eli Roth, the genius behind ?Cabin Fever? dropped a note to Aint it Cool News saying ?I got a very nice phone call from Don Mancini, who said he loved Cabin Fever and said our strong opening helped him get the new Chucky film off the ground. He said between Ronny Yu, Victor Salva, and now Cabin Fever, the financiers have kicked into high gear and he's now in prep. I think it's called 'Seed of Chucky.' So even people who saw 'Cabin Fever' and hated it should know that their dollars ultimately went to a good cause.?
Roth also said you?ll get to see the man behind Freddy Krueger on the big screen again soon. ?Also, it's official - the first Raw Nerve film will be '2001 Maniacs,' directed by Tim Sullivan. We're going to be shooting in a few months, and Robert Englund will star in it. This film as you know was supposed to go last year, but three days before shooting, the financing collapsed. So I brought it to Raw Nerve to rescue it, and we'll be shooting in November. Tim's new draft is awesome, it's going to be a shitload of fun, with lots of blood, guts and nudity for the fans to enjoy. I will be on set for all the tit shots, just to make sure they're nice and sweaty!
?Hopefully the fans will see these two concrete examples of why it's important to support each other, and know that I'm serious about doing everything I can to help save R rated sick as f#ck horror.?
