Aubrey Plaza is ready for a little child’s play…
The 34-year-old half-Puerto Rican actress will star in MGM’s Child’s Play remake for Orion Pictures.
Plaza will appear opposite Gabriel Bateman and Brian Tyree Henry in the film.
Bateman will take on the role as Andy, Plaza will play Andy’s mom Karen, and Henry is Mike. Those characters originated in the 1988 version, which went on to gross $44 million worldwide, spawned six sequels, and created one of the most well-known characters in the horror genre.
Polaroid helmer Lars Klevberg is set to direct the film, which will mark Klevberg’s second feature.
The plot, based on the original, follows a mother (Plaza) who gives her son (Bateman) a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature.
Filming is currently underway in Vancouver.
