Killer dolls are the new red. Not too long ago, we got news that there was a new Child’s Play movie in the works that followed a group of kids that stumble onto a high-tech doll with killer tendencies, and now it sounds like we’ll be getting yet another high-tech killer doll, this time from legendary producers James Wan and Jason Blum.
Last night, on the eve of San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced that the pair would once again be working together on a film called M3GAN, which tells the story of “a brilliant toy company roboticist who uses artificial intelligence to develop M3GAN, a life-like doll programmed to emotionally bond with her newly orphaned niece. But when the doll’s programming works too well, she becomes overprotective of her new friend…with terrifying results.”
“I had such a great time working together with Jason on Insidious, a film that did a lot of good for both of us,” Wan told The Hollywood Reporter. “I don’t forget where I started from and I’m grateful and appreciative of Jason. We’ve been looking for something to collaborate on again since. Pretty much the concept is about embracing technology too much and relying too much on it,” Wan says. “And what happens with technology runs amok. It’s a commentary on the world we live in and it feels relevant.”
Are you ready for another Deep Impact/Armageddon and Volcano/Dante’s Peak face-off between two like-minded films? Well, we don’t know when it’s coming out, but if there is a God out there, they’d have them drop within the same month.
