It producer Seth Grahame-Smith is bringing the killer doll Chuckie to a new generation of fans and he’s enlisted an iconic voice actor to take over the role.
Brad Dourif originally voiced the killer doll in the original film and its subsequent sequels, but the studio has decided that Mark Hamill will take over the role of serial killer Charles Lee Ray who is transported into the body of a doll. Calling himself “Chuckie”, the killer continues his reign of evil. The new film is said to be a contemporary take on the story, so this description is speculative.
