‘M3GAN’ Screenwriter Says Unrated Version OTW

Akela Cooper, who is the screenwriter for M3GAN, recently shared that an unrated version could be dropping real soon. Cooper said, “No shade to Universal, love them, and I understand that once the trailer went viral, teenagers got involved, and you want them to be able to see it. There should be an unrated version at some point.”

She continued, “I heard it is on the books. But yes, it was way gorier. Her body count in the script was higher than in the movie.” She added, “Now I’m [hearing], ‘There’s gore, and it’s not a problem.’ I’m happy that I could have a hand in bringing back fun horror that doesn’t take itself so seriously.

I’m reading about more horror movies that are wild, out-there ideas coming out or being bought. And some of them are original, which is good! I’m happy that I could steer that ship so that studio execs can be like, ‘Oh!


There might actually be money in them thar hills.'” She also said it is hard to compare M3GAN to Chucky because Chucky is a ‘doll’ and M3GAN is more like a robot.
