Run: Sarah Paulson’s Horror Thriller Moving From Lionsgate to Hulu
The upcoming horror thriller Run starring Golden Globe and Emmy winner Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story, American Crime Story, Game Change) and newcomer Kiera Allen is moving from Lionsgate to Hulu after the streamer acquired the domestic rights to the film, directed by Aneesh Chaganty.
In Run, They say you can never escape a mother’s love… but for Chloe, that’s not a comfort — it’s a threat. There’s something unnatural, even sinister about the relationship between Chloe (Allen) and her mom, Diane (Paulson). Diane has raised her daughter in total isolation, controlling every move she’s made since birth, and there are secrets that Chloe’s only beginning to grasp. From the visionary writers, producers, and director of the breakout film Searching, comes a suspense thriller that shows that when mom gets a little too close, you need to RUN.
“We’re super excited audiences will get to stream Run on Hulu, a platform that’s really committed to giving the movie the same, big splash that was always intended for it,” said Chaganty. “Plus, the film is about a girl who’s been quarantined at home her whole life; watching it the same way should be a fitting experience in 2020.”
Chaganty co-wrote the screenplay with his Searching co-writer Sev Ohanian. The project is produced by Ohanian and Natalie Qasabian.
The movie was initially set for a May 8 release but was delayed along with many other titles due to the ongoing global pandemic. A new Hulu premiere date has not yet been announced. Run will reportedly also be released theatrically in select international markets.
The writer/director first got acclaim with his viral video Seeds, which racked up more than a million views in under 24 hours on YouTube. Filmed with Google Glass, the video got him invited to join Google Creative Labs, where he spent two years developing commercials for the tech giant.
