Allison Williams (Get Out) has now signed on to star in as well as executive produce the upcoming Blumhouse horror movie M3GAN, whose release date has just been announced as January 13, 2023.
Williams stars Gemma, a brilliant roboticist at a toy company. Using artificial intelligence, she creates 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 introduces her to a M3GAN prototype, which has unimaginable consequences.
