Sarah Paulson’s ‘Run’ To Skip Theaters, Will Debut On Hulu

Sarah Paulson’s cinematic efforts continue to make news. The much-in-demand actor–as reported here in Horror News Network–is returning for the 10th season of American Horror Story on FX, will direct an episode of the spinoff American Horror Stories on FX on Hulu and will star in the upcoming Ratched series on Netflix.

And, this week, it was announced that Paulson’s horror film Run–first slated for a theatrical release–will now be seen on Hulu, according to The Hollywood Reporter. No debut date for the movie has been set as of this writing. The film still will be released in theaters in select international markets.

Hulu acquired the domestic rights to the thriller from Lionsgate, which had looked forward to a May 8 (Mother’s Day) big-screen debut, but that was before the COVID-19 pandemic ruined those plans–along with those of so many other studios.

The film–directed by Aneesh Chaganty, co-written by Chaganty and Sev Ohanian and produced by Ohanian and Natalie Qasabian (the creative team behind the sleeper hit Searching)–stars Paulson and newcomer Kiera Allen.

The movie tells the harrowing story of a mother, Diane (Paulson), who has raised her daughter Chloe (Allen) in total isolation, controlling her every move since birth. But now, the wheelchair-bound teenager starts to understand the dark secrets surrounding her, leading to events that place the girl in a struggle for her life. A struggle that shows that “when mom gets a little too close, you need to run.”

Chaganty said he is “super excited” for his film to stream on Hulu, a platform he noted is “committed to giving the movie the same big splash that was always intended for it. Plus,” he added, “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.”
