Disney (DIS) & Netflix (NFLX): I'll Be Your Stock To The End, Hidey-Ho!
HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA - As the race for moviegoer dollars continues to heat up, big studios are making safe bets to placate shareholders and achieve lofty profit goals. Critics have pilloried studios for not taking risks on developing new franchises, and the studios don't seem to care, as there is a bidding war for Tim Burton's reboot of Child's Play.
Disney (DIS) & Netflix (NFLX):
"Child's Play is a solid franchise," said Disney's (DIS) CEO Bob Iger. "We're looking opportunities for expansion and a horror-themed park may be in the future. Chucky would be a great way to kick it off. We could even spin it into a 'Child's Play Universe' and maybe a tie-in with the Avengers. Who wouldn't want to see Chucky as the right-hand 'Good Guy' to Thanos?"
Netflix has been on a roll lately in poaching silver-screen talent and Tim Burton would be a major win for the streaming content giant.
"Obviously after Bright and a bunch of highly-watched garbage by Adam Sandler, we're looking to up the game," said Reed Hastings, Netflix's (NFLX) supreme overlord. "Landing Tim Burton would be huge. Sure, some of his recent films have been underwhelming, but we're confident in what he can do with Child's Play."

TrendSmasher caught up with Tim Burton outside of Tim Burton Productions.
"I'm really excited about re-imagining Chucky," said Burton. "At first, I wanted to make him a combo of Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands, but then I saw the Trump balloon in England and it hit me. Trump and Chucky share a strong orange resemblance. We're going to make the doll's brand the 'Good Business Guys' and have him dressed in a suit. He'll be named 'Trumpy' and he'll say stuff like: 'Mexico will pay for the wall!' and 'Enroll in my fake university!'"
Child's Play Reboot: The Plot
According to Burton, the doll will be purchased on sale by an illegal immigrant and given to his eleven-year old son, Javier, who will eventually discover the doll's dastardly secret.
"It's going to be amazing," said Michael Pena of Ant-Man & The Wasp, who has reportedly signed-on to take the role of Carlos, Javier's hard-working single-father who just wants his son to have the opportunity for a better future. "I am excited to work with Tim Burton on this project."
Jacob Tremblay, a rising young star, will play the role of Javier and will be fitted with prosthetics and painted so he looks more of traditional Mexican descent, according to Burton.
"It worked for Scarlett Johansson in The Ghost In The Shell so why can't it work for Jacob?" asked Doug Glatt, a representative for the young actor.
