Ever since the days of Frankenstein meets the Wolfman and House of Dracula, horror movie characters have crossed over in one form or another. Its potential hasn’t really been explored much in recent years, though fans have been gifted Alien vs predator, Freddy to Jasonand Sadako against Kayako (a battle of the spirits of ringu and The resentment) to mixed results. One character that has always felt ripe for a title match against another character is Chucky, and series creator Don Mancini has long spoken of the potential of it all. Speaking to ComicBook.com in an exclusive interview about the season 2 finale of the Chuckie In the TV series, Mancini confirmed to us that crossover conversations are not just ideas, but something that is actively thought about.
“You’ve probably read or heard that I’ve always wanted to do a crossover between Freddy and Chucky. I think that would be really fun,” Mancini confirmed. “But now that we’re doing well in this other medium at Universal, there are other monsters from Universal that could theoretically be available to us. So it’s something we talk about. I’ll put it this way….I’ll don’t say too much about it, but keep an eye on it. It’s definitely my interest too.”
So who could Chucky cross paths with when Universal’s beast stable is at their disposal? Of course, the whole class of Classic Monsters seems to have a lot of potential, especially since Universal seems very open to letting the likes of Dracula, Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, and The Mummy be used in different ways. Universal is also home to the Psycho movie franchise and a big chunk of King Kong, though given Chucky’s size, maybe someone smaller is more likely.
Universal is also home to a large number of films produced by Blumhouse Treacherous, The robberyand Happy death day. Blumhouse also has the forthcoming M3GAN, a new spin on the killer doll subgenre that Chucky has ruled for thirty years. We asked Don if the potential for that crossover had been considered after the new killer doll movie went viral with its first trailer, he replied, “I haven’t seen the movie. Everything I’ve seen is what everyone else has seen and that is very nice. I wouldn’t be against it.”
