Hulu has acquired the domestic rights to Aneesh Chaganty’s thriller Run from Lionsgate. The Run movie is a classic, streamlined, old-school Hollywood thriller.
Before movie theaters started closing, Lionsgate had scheduled a May 8, 2020 release date so that it would coincide with Mother’s Day weekend. Due to the health crisis, it was later pulled from the schedule.
The film stars Emmy, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Sarah Paulson and introduces newcomer Kiera Allen.
“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 Aneesh 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.”
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 (newcomer Kiera Allen) and her mom, Diane (Sarah 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.
The Run movie, which is the first major thriller since the 1940s starring a wheelchair user, will be released theatrically in select international markets.
Aneesh Chaganty directed from a script by Chaganty and Sev Ohanian. The film was produced by Natalie Qasabian, p.g.a. and Sev Ohanian, p.g.a.
