The Bride of Chucky isn’t happy about the “Child’s Play” reboot. Jennifer Tilly, who provided the voice of Tiffany Valentine in the horror franchise’s four most recent installments, threw shade at the upcoming film with a pointed tweet: “New “Chucky” movie? Ummm…no. Tiffany and I are gonna sit this one out. #NotmyChucky,” the actress wrote alongside a photo of herself and the doll in question. That she did so the same day the new movie’s first trailer was released probably isn’t a coincidence.

Tilly lent her distinct voice to “Bride of Chucky,” “Seed of Chucky,” “Curse of Chucky,” and “Cult of Chucky,” which is to say that she’s been involved with the series for nearly 20 years. Don Mancini, who created “Child’s Play” in 1988, is likewise unhappy with the reboot — and not involved with it in any way.

“Obviously my feelings were hurt,” he said during an appearance on the Post Mortem podcast. “You know, I had just done two movies…forgive me if I sound defensive, [they] were both at 83 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Even though they didn’t get theatrical releases, they were well regarded. And I did create the character and nurture the franchise for three fucking decades.” Mancini wrote all seven “Child’s Play” movies and directed the last three.

Lars Klevberg is helming the upcoming reboot from a script by Tyler Burton Smith, with Aubrey Plaza, Gabriel Bateman, and Brian Tyree Henry starring. United Artists will release the new “Child’s Play” in theaters on June 21.
