Get Out Actress Allison Williams Rejoins Blumhouse For Killer Robot Movie M3GAN

Actress Allison Williams is back with Blumhouse to star in and executive produce its upcoming tech horror movie M3GAN, the company announced today.

According to Deadline, the movie has Williams playing Gemma, a roboticist at a toy company.

“She 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,” according to the report.

The movie puts together a crew of horror alum. Gerard Johnstone (Housebound) will direct, while Akela Cooper (Malignant, Luke Cage) is providing the script. The original story concept comes from horror director James Wan (The Conjuring), who will produce the film alongside Jason Blum. Other producers include Michael Clear (from Wan’s production company Atomic Monster), Judson Scott, and Blumhouse’s Ryan Turek, who will executive produce.

Williams’ last Blumhouse joint, Get Out, raked in $255 million at the worldwide box office along with an Academy Award for best screenplay for writer/director Jordan Peele, as well as a number of other nominations and awards. Williams most recently appeared in the Netflix thriller Perfection, as well as Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Blumhouse has not yet set a release window for M3GAN
