M3GAN is getting a new member of the family (so to speak), with a spinoff of the horror film in the works. THR reports that Atomic Monster and Blumhouse are developing a spinoff from the original 2023 film titled SOULM8TE. The film will be directed by Kate Dolan (You Are Not My Mother) and is set for a January 2nd, 2026 release.

Dolan rewrote the script for the film, which was written by Rafael Jordan from a story by James Wan, Ingrid Bisu and Jordan. The new film is described as a modern twist on the 1990s erotic thriller in which a man acquires an AI android in order to cope with the loss of his recently deceased wife. He tries to create a truly sentient partner but inadvertently turns the android into a deadly soulmate.

“Fundamentally, I view this film as an exploration of relationships and loneliness,” Dolan said in a statement about the film. “Despite technological advances, there are enduring human truths we cannot escape, and I am looking forward to delving into those depths.”

The film will release after M3GAN 2.0, which will release on June 27th, 2025 with Allison Williams and Violet McGraw returning to star.
