Patrick Dempsey Joins the Cast of “Dexter: Original Sin” Prequel Series

In addition to next year’s sequel M3GAN 2.0, arriving in theaters June 27, 2025, the M3GAN Universe will also be expanding with a spinoff horror movie titled SOULM8TE!

Deadline reports today that the upcoming SOULM8TE is being billed as a ’90s-style erotic thriller with a “new technological twist,” and it’s coming to theaters on January 2, 2026.

Kate Dolan (You Are Not My Mother) will direct the film.

Deadline details in their report today, “Dolan rewrote an original draft written by Rafael Jordan (Salvage Marines), with the story by James Wan, Ingrid Bisu and Jordan.”

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.

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

SOULM8TE is a thrilling and seductive addition to the M3GAN universe. We’re excited to partner with Kate to bring this story to life with her unique cinematic vision and point of view,” said James Wan, who produces through his company Atomic Monster.

M3GAN was a massive viral hit for Blumhouse back in 2022, the film scaring up $180 million at the worldwide box office. It’s no secret why Blumhouse is all-in on all things M3GAN.
