Elisabeth Moss to lead Daina Reid’s Run Rabbit Run
After the roaring success of this year’s The Invisible Man, Elisabeth Moss is ready to return to the horror genre as she has signed on star in the upcoming paranormal thriller Run Rabbit Run, reuniting her with The Handmaid’s Tale director Daina Reid, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The film, which is being penned by novelist Hannah Kent, will see Moss star as Sarah, a fertility doctor with a strong understanding of the cycle of life, in which a person is born, they live and they die, but when her young daughter Mia begins displaying increasingly strange and erratic behavior, she is forced to challenge her own beliefs and confront a ghost from her past.
Anna McLeish and Sarah Shaw of Carver Films, who developed the story concept with Kent, will produce the film alongside Moss and producing partner Lindsey McManus, while XYZ Films is currently set to executive produce the project. XYZ will also finance the production in conjunction with Screen Australia and is currently handling worldwide sales as the project is currently being shopped around at the virtual Cannes market.
In addition to helming four episodes of the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning Hulu series led by Moss, Reid is well-known for her work on the small screen with directing episodes of HBO’s The Outsider, Amazon’s Upload and Netflix’s Space Force, amongst others.
This year has already seen two notable hits for Moss with the critical and commercial hit Invisible Man reboot from Leigh Whannell (Upgrade) and Blumhouse Productions, as well as the highly-acclaimed biopic drama Shirley centered on the eponymous author of The Haunting of Hill House. She will next be seen in Wes Anderson’s upcoming dramedy The French Dispatch, which is currently slated to hit theaters on October 16.
