Earlier this month, it was revealed in a report by Collider that a remake of the 1989 horror movie Child’s Play was being developed by MGM. Now, we have more details regarding the reboot project thanks to a production listing.
Production Weekly brings the information on Child’s Play remake from their recent listing. According to the report, the working title for the movie is ‘THE KASLAN PROJECT’. There’s another production company called ‘KASLAN PRODUCTIONS’ associated with the project so it seems like the working title it referencing the film as their project.
Norwegian director Lars Klevberg will start rolling the cameras for Child’s Play on September 10 in Vancouver from a script written by Tyler Burton Smith. Filming would wrap on October 30.

The remake’s plot is still kept under wraps and there’s no release date set for the movie either. But going by the working title reveal, it looks like fans won’t have to wait long for announcements such casting for the child actors and possibly a change in the voice actor who will portray Chucky which has been referred as “a robot doll on a killing spree.”
