Bride of Chucky Star Jennifer Tilly Reacts to Child's Play Reboot

Bride of Chucky Jennifer Tilly

Rebooting a well-known property almost always proves controversial, so it's not entirely surprising that the Child's Play reboot is being met with negative reactions online. The trailer for the Child's Play reboot was released on Friday, and despite the posters showing a very different take on Chucky, the trailer opted to forgo showing the possessed killer doll. Still, despite only glimpses at Chucky, it's clear the reboot is taking cues from the original film, albeit with a more modern approach. Unfortunately, Tilly -- along with her character, Tiffany -- seems less than thrilled with the reboot.

Tilly tweeted a photo of herself and a Tiffany doll, captioning the post, "New “Chucky” movie? Ummm...no. Tiffany and I are gonna sit this one out. #NotmyChucky."

Tilly, of course, joined the long-running franchise with 1998's Bride of Chucky as Tiffany. She later reprised her role in 2004's Seed of Chucky, 2013's Curse of Chucky, and finally 2017's Cult of Chucky. The upcoming reboot doesn't seem particularly popular among series veterans, as creator Don Mancini spoke out against the reboot last year.

Interestingly enough, the Child's Play film isn't the only reboot of the series in the works. SyFy is currently developing an entirely separate Chucky television series. Unlike the film, however, that series will be overseen by Mancini, who will also write the adaptation. In a statement released by Mancini, he confirmed that the series will offer a new take on the character, while still staying true to the original version of Chucky.

Based on characters by Don Mancini, Child's Play, written by Tyler Burton Smith and directed by Lars Klevberg stars Aubrey Plaza, Brian Tyree Henry and Gabriel Bateman. The film will officially hit theaters on June 21.
