Seed of Chucky: According to Variety, Hip-hop star Redman, filmmaker John Waters and actor Billy Boyd have signed onto Seed of Chucky, the fifth pic in the "Chucky" horror film series, which started production Monday in Romania for Focus Features.

Boyd will voice the character of Glen, the orphan doll offspring of Chucky (Brad Dourif) and his twisted bride Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly).

Redman co-stars as a rapper-turned-director and Waters as a sleazy tabloid paparazzo.

Don Mancini, franchise creator and writer of all five films, is directing the pic. David Kirschner and his producing partner Corey Sienega are producing.
