James Wan To Produce A.I. Horror Film ‘M3GAN’ With ‘Get Out’ Star Allison Williams

By 2023 Allison Williams will be a bonafide scream queen. The star of Get Out and The Perfection will now headline and produce M3GAN alongside another icon of fright, James Wan. Deadline reports the A.I. infused horror movie now lands on Friday, Jan 13th 2023. Presumably yet another F13 without a Jason sighting. Sigh.

Universal Studios, Blumhouse, and Atomic Monster are teaming up for the tech-savvy thriller starring Allison Williams. This is only her fifth film credit to date, and her third prestige horror title. The stats are looking good, and we’re always happy to welcome Williams back into The Further.

Gerard Johnstone of Housebound fame directs M3GAN, the dark thriller written by the incredible Akela Cooper. Cooper is also responsible for writing Malignant, which Dread Central had on our best films of 2021 list. With Cooper and Johnstone on the creative end of things, our attention is inarguably piqued.

Deadline reports that M3GAN “follows Williams who plays Gemma, a brilliant roboticist at a toy company who uses artificial intelligence to develop, M3GAN, a life-like doll programmed to be a kid’s greatest companion and a parent’s greatest ally. After unexpectedly gaining custody of her orphaned niece, Gemma enlists the help of the M3GAN prototype – a decision that has unimaginable consequences.”

Ronny Chieng (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Crazy Rich Asians) will also star in the film.
