Comedian Ronny Chieng is starting to branch out into more film roles. After having a part in Crazy Rich Asians as well as in Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings coming out this summer, Chieng has been cast in an upcoming sci-fi movie.
The movie, titled M3GAN, “Allison Williams plays Gemma, a brilliant roboticist at a toy company. She uses artificial intelligence to develop M3GAN, a life-like doll programmed to be a kid’s greatest companion and a parent’s greatest ally. After unexpectedly gaining custody of her orphaned niece, Gemma enlists the help of the M3GAN prototype – a decision that has unimaginable consequences.” No word yet on who Chieng will be playing in the film.
The film is being directed by Gerard Johnstone, based off a script by Akela Cooper. James Wan – who wrote the story the screenplay was based off of – and Jason Blum are serving as producers.
