JT There are a lot of rumors — they definitely have the go-ahead to make the next Chucky movie, and I think that was one of the ideas. The other idea was to continue the Seed of Chucky story, because people really like the character of (Chucky's child) Glen-Glenda. I honestly think we've come too far to turn back now. (Laughs.) I think the idea behind the remake is that we have so many more special effects, so you could do it so much more realistically. But I don't think a good horror movie is about having the most brilliant special effects. It's in the writing and the presentation and the acting.

Also, I just think the direction that Chucky is going — I've made over 60 movies, but everywhere I go, the No. 1 movie that people know me from is Bride of Chucky. I go to foreign countries where they don't know any English at all, and they point at me and yell "Bride of Chucky!" And Don conceived Seed of Chucky as being a cross between Sunset Boulevard (1950) and Ordinary People (1980) — it's not just a slasher film. There's something for everybody!
