Walking Dead composer Bear McCreary to score Child's Play remake
Chucky just found a new, musical, best friend.
The Walking Dead composer Bear McCreary will score the soundtrack for the Child’s Play remake (out June 21). McCreary’s many other credits include Battlestar Galactica and Godzilla: King of the Monsters (out May 31).
“Chucky haunted my dreams when I was a kid, ever since his devilish little face peered out at me from a torn VHS cover at my local video store,” McCreary said in a statement. “Now, thirty years later, I have a remarkable opportunity to contribute to his musical legacy. Inspired by Chucky’s toy-store origins, I’ve assembled a ‘toy orchestra,’ of toy pianos, hurdy gurdies, accordions, plastic guitars, and otamatones, that will be featured prominently in the score. I hope that these creepy, unique tones will help terrify the next generation of Child’s Play fans!”
