Jason Blum is…M3GAN.
At least he was Thursday night. The super-producer took to Twitter to share a Halloween-ready makeover that saw the 53-year-old Blumhouse founder transformed into the title character from the company’s upcoming horror entry M3GAN.
With more than 200 credits on his résumé, the prolific Blum had plenty of big-screen characters to pick from for this year’s costume, but he went with the one that recently went viral after the trailer dropped earlier this month.
The Universal Pictures film, directed by Gerard Johnstone from a script by Akela Cooper, centers on a robotic doll that is described as a “marvel of artificial intelligence.” Designed by a brilliant toy company roboticist named Gemma (Allison Williams), M3GAN can become friend and teacher, playmate and protector for the child with whom she is bonded. When Gemma becomes the caretaker of her orphaned 8-year-old niece Cady (Violet McGraw), she pairs the M3GAN prototype with Cady only to see the situation spiral out of control.
Judging by the trailer and early promotional materials, Blum nailed the costume down to M3GAN’S long blonde tresses and preppy ensemble. He started teasing this year’s installment early in the week, sharing that his costume was still “a big secret.” However, he inched closer to the big reveal early in the evening by sharing photographic evidence of the makeover with his 154,600 followers. “It’s happening,” he wrote, followed by close-ups of his face with fresh coats of makeup.
Blum, who just released the latest Halloween entry Halloween Ends, has a long history of dressing up in outrageous costumes. In 2019, he and wife Lauren dressed up as characters from a Roy Lichtenstein painting. A year prior, the husband and wife partnered on their looks by playing onetime power lawyer Michael Avenatti and his client Stormy Daniels, with Blum doing his best impression as the porn star. In 2016, they were Dorothy and the Wicked Witch of the West from the classic film The Wizard of Oz. In 2015, he played another title character from one of his films, Jem, from that year’s Jem and the Holograms.
See those looks below, and see M3GAN in theaters on Jan. 13.
