After enjoying the spotlight of this year’s successful The Invisible Man, Elisabeth Moss is back for more eerie film moments in the ghost horror-thriller Run Rabbit Run.
The paranormal thriller–which reunites Moss with director Daina Reid of The Handmaid’s Tale–will be financed by XYZ Films and Screen Australia, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The movie–with a screenplay by novelist Hannah Kent–will star Moss as Sarah, described as a “fertility doctor with a strong understanding of the cycle of life, in which a person is born, they live and they die.”
But things start to take a turn for the bizarre when Sarah’s young daughter Mia “begins displaying increasingly strange and erratic behavior (and) she is forced to challenge her own beliefs and confront a ghost from her past.”
Moss will also act as a producer of the film, along with Anna McLeish and Sarah Shaw of Carver Films (who developed the story with Kent) and Lindsey McManus.
XYZ Films–which will serve as executive producer–is also handling worldwide sales, as the film is being shopped at the virtual Cannes market.
Reid–is addition to helming the award-winning The Handmaid’s Tale with Moss as star–has directed episodes of HBO’s The Outsider and Space Force for Netflix.
This has been a busy year for Moss, who not only starred in The Invisible Man from Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions, but also has the lead role in Shirley, the biopic about Shirley Jackson, author of The Haunting of Hill House.
The Invisible Man, of course, was a critical and financial success for Universal and Blumhouse, grossing $128 million worldwide on a budget of just $7 million. The movie, as horror fans know, follows a woman (Moss) who believes she is being stalked by her abusive boyfriend even after his apparent suicide. She finally comes to the realization that he has the frightening ability to become invisible.
