WATERS TO DIE IN SEED OF CHUCKY
Writer/director Don Mancini and producer David Kirschner have let FANGORIA in on a tasty bit of casting for the upcoming SEED OF CHUCKY: Cult-film legend John Waters will play an ill-fated papparazzo. Mancini tells Fango, ?John has been a Chucky fan for a long time, and I wrote the part specifically for him.? Kirschner adds, ?And we made sure that he dies the most gruesome death.?
Mancini and Kirschner have also signed some key behind-the-scenes talent for the Focus Features project: the cinematographer is Vernon (I STILL KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER) Layton, and genre veteran Pino (CARRIE) Donaggio will compose the score. ?A lot of SEED is a takeoff on Brian De Palma?s early movies,? Mancini says, ?and I thought it would be a perfect touch to have his composer do the music for our film as well.?
Kirschner is looking forward to seeing Mancini, who has written all the CHILD?S PLAY films, take his long-awaited place behind the camera on the franchise. ?Don deserves a lot of credit for how good BRIDE OF CHUCKY turned out,? the producer says, ?and I?m very confident he?s going to do a great job as director.?
