In 2012, Perrineau starred in the direct-to-video film Air Collision. In 2014, Perrineau appeared in episodes of Newsreaders and in Chasing Life as Margo. In April 2014, it was announced that Perrineau was cast in the role of Shana in the movie based on the hit 1980's cartoon Jem and the Holograms. The film came under fire for casting Perrineau, a light-skinned, straight-haired, biracial actress for the role of Shana, a character who had a dark complexion and afro-textured hair. The film was released on October 23, 2015, and was a box office flop, only making $1.4 million in its opening weekend. In July 2014, she was cast in Drake Doremus's film Equals. The film had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 5, 2015. Perrineau had a small role in the film Passengers, released on December 21, 2016.
In 2017, Perrineau was cast as Giselle Hammond in the Blumhouse supernatural thriller film Truth or Dare. The film was released in theaters on April 13, 2018.
Sexual assault allegations
In November 2017, Perrineau filed a police report with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department accusing scriptwriter Murray Miller of sexual assault in 2012 when the actress was seventeen. Girls actress Lena Dunham initially defended Miller, who was a writer for the series, but later retracted her statements.
