Chuckie creator confirms monster crossover talks

Are we going to see Chuckie versus Freddy soon?


Ever wondered how Chucky would fare when pitted against other horror movie monsters? Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees went at it in the 2003 film Freddy vs. Jason. The winner of the battle was a bit vague though, as Freddy had his head severed in the end but was still seen winking, indicating that he was still alive.

Director Don Mancini is open to having Chucky involved in a crossover horror movie.

We've had other epic monster movie fights before. Frankenstein once took on the Wolfman, while the Aliens and Predators fought for control over a sleepy little town. Sadako took on Kayako in a match that felt like a draw. But, for some reason, fans haven't seen Chucky go against other horror movie characters despite his popularity. In fact, fans have been asking for a Chucky versus Annabelle crossover, as both dolls seem capable of dishing out massive amounts of gore.

The success of the Chucky series on Syfy led to speculation that a crossover movie is in the works. Chucky series creator Don Mancini has always been vocal about a crossover film for his character. The director spoke with ComicBook.com to confirm that he is in talks to have a crossover movie sometime in the future, saying:

You probably read or heard about how I've always wanted to do a Freddy versus Chucky crossover. I think that would be really fun," Mancini shared. "But now that we're doing well in this different medium at Universal, there are other Universal-owned monsters that theoretically could be at our disposal. So, it's something that we do talk about. I'll put it that way....I won't say too much about it, but stay tuned. It's definitely an interest of mine, as well.

Don Mancini hasn’t confirmed who his killer doll would fight in a movie but Universal has a stable of monsters from King Kong to the Mummy.

One likely candidate to go head to head against Chuck would be M3GAN, a new character by Universal subsidiary Blumhouse. M3GAN stands for Model 3 Generative Android which is essentially a murderous robotic doll. Amie Donald takes on the role of M3GAN in the upcoming horror flick.

Mancini was asked about a potential crossover pitting the classic killer doll Chucky against the upstart M3GAN. "I haven't seen the movie. All I've seen is what everyone else has seen and that's very fun. I wouldn't be opposed to it," Mancini said.

It would also be interesting to have Chucky battle against classics like Freddy Krueger or Jason Voorhees. The Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street films have ruled the horror movie genre with Chucky for the last three decades. A three-way death match between Freddy, Jason, and Chucky sounds like a whole lot of fun.

Fans are hoping that Chucky gets to fight against iconic horror monsters like Freddy and Jason.

Frankenstein could be another monster Chucky could battle against. Both share similarities in being reanimated creations. A lumbering Frankenstein trying to fend off an agile and cunning Chucky is something that we could imagine happening in the future.

And there is always a killer doll battle between Chuck and Annabelle. You can go to Youtube to watch fan-created content regarding a fight between the two.
