A spinoff to the hit horror film M3GAN has been announced. Jason Blum’s Blumhouse and James Wan’s Atomic Monster are producing the spinoff titled SOULM8TE, a new film in the same universe that is described to be an erotic thriller “with a technological twist.”

In SOULM8TE, a man acquires an artificially intelligent android to cope with the loss of his recently deceased wife. In an attempt to create a truly sentient partner, he inadvertently turns a harmless lovebot into a deadly soulmate. The film is set for release on January 2, 2026.

Released in 2022, M3GAN follows an artificially intelligent doll that develops self-awareness and turns aggressive toward anyone who threatens her relationship with her human companion.

The film was a critical and commercial success and earned over $181 million worldwide. A sequel, titled M3GAN 2.0, is scheduled to be released on June 27, 2025. Allison Williams and Violet McGraw are returning to star in the film.
