O roteirista e diretor Don Mancini afirma que, embora Glen / Glenda se assemelhe a David Bowie / Ziggy Stardust, não há referência intencional.
Uma entrevista exclusiva do CampBlood com Don Mancini:
Was the Glen doll in Seed modeled after Mia Farrow? Seriously...
Glen has also been compared to David Bowie/Ziggy Stardust, as well as to Lucille Ball. I was going for a Tim Burton or Edward Gorey sort of look -- monstrous yet innocent. I suppose that description could apply to all of the above -- but I have my doubts about Mia Farrow's innocence.
Em uma entrevista separada com NYMag , Don Mancini afirma que queria fazer o gay de Glen. Ele também afirma que o único ponto de referência usado é o filme Ed Wood Glen e Glenda :
You’ve said that Universal passed on the script for Seed of Chucky because they felt it was “too gay.”
Well, people have expectations for the fifth movie in a slasher series.
What did they expect?
Son of Chucky, another killer doll. I thought it’s much more interesting if the child is completely sweet and innocent and wants nothing to do with that activity. The bottom line is, “What if Chucky had a gay kid?” To me, that’s hilarious.
Do you reference other coming-out tales?
No. Only Glen or Glenda, the Ed Wood film. I wanted this one to be more like Ordinary People, very character- and dialogue-driven.
