S CLUB 7 MEETS CHUCKY 5: Hey, let's not be too quick to ridicule Hannah Spearritt from S Club 7 for having to take a role in the next Chucky movie. Just because it's the fifth movie in the Childs' Play franchise doesn't mean that Seed of Chucky is going to be a total dog; the horror-character creating carnage on the backlot at the movies plot isn't that creaky, really (first sighted in the 60s in the sequel to Psycho*?). It could be a really great movie. The co-presidents of the production company reckon so, anyway:

Having already achieved worldwide success and garnered millions of fans as part of S Club 7, Hannah is making the transition to acting with great charm and spark.
In the clever and outrageous new scenario that Don has cooked up, Hannah will be the lone beacon of sanity as Chucky and his family - and the equally creepy Hollywood phonies - run amok."

Well, it could be worse. It could be a movie with one of the Child's Play dolls as beacon of sanity while a resurrected S Club 7 run amok, couldn't it? Which would be rubbish and have singing in it.

* - No, we mean the sequel to the novel. Robert Bloch was so pissed off with the Hitchcock adaptation of his book he took his revenge by sending Norman Bates into Hollywood to splatter his way through a studio producing a movie about him. Obviously, the movies chose to junk this and Psycho II, the movie version, was that piece of fluff about Norman being released and going back to the Bates Motel.
