Horror cross media franchise Puppet Master is set for a reboot thanks to Di Bonaventura Pictures (Transformers) and Caliber Media.
While I have heard about Puppet Master and the fact there was at least one sequel I did not know there was this huge franchise built around the stories of toys coming to life and going on killing sprees. There have been 10 films as well as comic books, collector’s items and toys.
The plan is for several films with the first currently titled “Puppet Master: The Little Reich,” which follows a recently divorced young man who discovers a mint condition Blade doll in his deceased brother’s closet and plans to sell the toy at a convention in Oregon celebrating the 30th anniversary of the infamous Toulon Murders. All hell breaks loose during the auction when a strange force animates all of the puppets throughout the convention, setting them on a bloody killing spree.
