In a recent interview with Variety, the film’s producers Jason Blum and James Wan revealed they have been talking about a sequel since they saw the film.
“After I first saw the movie, we had a good sense that a sequel might really work,” Blum said. “So, we broke our cardinal rule and we started talking about a sequel before the movie was released. I felt so bullish that we started entertaining a sequel earlier than we usually do.”
What is the plot of ‘M3GAN 2.0′?
Although the film has been announced, been given a title, a release date and a Screenwriter (Akela Cooper), a director and plot for the thriller has yet to be released.

When Gemma becomes the unexpected caretaker of her 8-year-old niece, Cady (Violet McGraw), she decides to give the girl an M3GAN prototype, a decision that leads to unimaginable consequences but also amazing dance sequences.
