M3GAN 2.0 Set For January 2025 Release



After M3GAN turned out to be yet another hit for Blumhouse, it should come as no surprise that a sequel to the campy horror film is already in the works, with a locked release date set for January 17, 2025.

Screenwriter Akela Cooper is returning to pen the sequel. Plot details haven’t been revealed, though Allison Williams, whose character helped bring to life the chaotic AI-like doll, will be back for “2.0” as will M3GAN’s pint-sized bestie, played by Violet McGraw. Gerard Johnstone directed the first film, but a director has not been announced for the sequel.


“M3GAN,” short for Model 3 Generative Android, debuted earlier in January and has continued to slay at the box office, generating $91 million globally to date. It cost $12 million, so it’s already minting money for its backers. Even before “M3GAN” became the box office’s newest it-girl, producers Jason Blum and James Wan publicly expressed their desire to make another killer-doll movie.


“After I first saw the movie, we had a good sense that a sequel might really work,” Blum told Variety.” “So, we broke our cardinal rule and we started talking about a sequel before the movie was released. I felt so bullish that we started entertaining a sequel earlier than we usually do.”


Blum, Wan and Williams are producers on the follow-up film. Michael Clear and Judson Scott, of Wan’s Atomic Monster banner, will executive produce. Blumhouse’s Ryan Turek will executive produce, along with Mark Katchur. Adam Hendricks and Greg Gilreath, from Divide/Conquer, will also serve as executive producers.


M3GAN turned out to be a big viral hit thanks to TikTok, so I say since it's a low-budget horror film, strike while the iron's hot.
