Allison Williams to Star in Blumhouse Tech Thriller M3GAN


After her turn in Get Out, Allison Williams is reuniting with Blumhouse Productions to star in the upcoming tech horror thriller M3GAN.

In the film, Williams plays Gemma, a brilliant 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.

Akela Cooper (Malignant, The Nun 2, Luke Cage) wrote the script that is based on a story by James Wan, and Gerard Johnstone (Housebound) will direct the film.
Jason Blum and James Wan are producing the thriller.

Michael Clear, of Wan’s Atomic Monster banner, will executive produce with Judson Scott shepherding for the company. Blumhouse’s Ryan Turek will executive produce. Williams will also serve as an executive producer.

Williams is represented by CAA, Untitled, R&CPMK and Frankfurt, Kurnit, Klein & Selz.

Allison Williams starred in Jordan Peele’s Academy Award-nominated film Get Out, for which she garnered a Screen Actors Guild ensemble nomination for her performance. Previously, she starred as Marnie on six seasons of HBO’s Emmy and Golden Globe-winning television series, Girls.

Most recently, she starred in the Richard Shepard-directed thriller The Perfection, which released on May 24, 2019 on Netflix, as well as the final season of A Series of Unfortunate Events for the streaming platform, in which she played the role of Kit Snicket.

In 2018, she appeared opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in Showtime’s limited series Patrick Melrose.

Williams won over critics from The New York Times to The Hollywood Reporter for her starring role as Peter Pan in NBC’s live-action musical event, Peter Pan Live, which aired on December 4, 2014.

She is the Ambassador for Horizons National, a national charity organization working to close the education gap for children from low-income households.
