James Wan explains why M3GAN is as realistic a killer doll movie as you’ll find

Unless you’re an insufferably provocative dolt or similar movie-goer, you probably don’t give too much thought to the realism of the killer doll movie you’ve been seeking in theaters, as most killer-something movies probably do.

Even so, James Wan and co. will have that department covered M3GANan upcoming movie that just so happens to be centered around a killer doll.

If you’re familiar with any of the trailers for Blumhouse’s next project, then you already know that the titular menace isn’t your typical killer doll, but the product of overly sharp artificial intelligence rather than any supernatural shenanigans. Since AI is becoming more and more important in our everyday life, this is not a mistake M3GAN seems to draw on a particular set of fears that accompany such impending ubiquity.

In an interview with Screen Rant, producer James Wan revealed that the goals he and his creative team set themselves were to develop a story based on possibility.

“We wanted to lean into something more real-world; something that was more relevant to what is going on today with all this AI technology that is leaking out and that is now surfacing in our world every day. And I think that was the key to something that can be scary because it feels very relevant to the world we live in today.”

He further noted how the final product of screenwriter Akela Cooper and director Gerard Johnstone masterfully captured that intent, noting particularly the film’s balance of humor and horror.

“It was the mission statement we gave to Akela, who wrote a great screenplay; Darkly humorous one moment and kinda scary the next. And that Gerard came along and did his magic to bring the whole film to life; Bring Megan to life. Bringing this doll to life was no easy task.”

A horror movie that could actually happen might not be at the top of anyone’s list, especially for those with too much imagination for their own good, but we should really thank Wan for giving us that warning. Now, if Elon Musk decides to release an “M4RCO” line of dolls, hopefully we’ll know better.
