Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

"The Walking Dead" has been roped in to score the soundtrack of the "Child's Play" reboot.

Aubrey Plaza, Gabriel Bateman, star in the upcoming re-imagining of the 1988 horror classic, with attached to voice the creepy killer Chucky Doll.

According to Variety, said Chucky haunted his dreams when he was a kid, "ever since his devilish little face peered out at me from a torn VHS cover at my local video store".

"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," he added.

McCreary's credits also include "Battlestar Galactica" and the upcoming "Godzilla: of the Monsters".

The new movie will follow the same plot of the original, centering on Karen (Plaza), a single mother who gifts her son (Bateman) a toy doll, unaware that it possesses the soul of a serial killer.

is directing the film from Tyler Burton Smith's script.

Seth Grahame-Smith, Katzenberg and are attached as producers.
