John Lafia, who co-wrote the 1988 horror film 'Child’s Play' and also co-wrote and directed 'Child’s Play 2,' died April 29 in Los Angeles aged 63.
According to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office, he has committed suicide.
“We’re devastated to hear of the passing of our friend John Lafia. He was a crucial part of the ‘Chucky’ family from the very beginning. He co-wrote the original ‘Child’s Play’ script along with director Tom Holland and myself, and John directed ‘Child’s Play 2,’ — the consensus favorite film among ‘Chucky’ fans. John was an incredibly generous artist. He let me tag along with him to every meeting, and shadow him on set; he taught me more about filmmaking during the production of that movie than several semesters in film school. John was also one of the most naturally curious and constantly creative people I ever met, someone who was always taking pictures, and jotting down ideas," 'Child’s Play' creator and screenwriter Don Mancini said in a statement provided by Lafia’s family.
