Sarah Paulson to lead Run isolationist thriller from Searching filmmakers

Lionsgate has passed the baton to Sarah Paulson, as now the AMERICAN HORROR STORY and OCEAN'S 8 alumna is set to star in the studio's upcoming thriller, RUN, which hails from the dynamic duo behind SEARCHING, Aneesh Chaganty and Sev Ohanian. In RUN, a teenage girl - raised in isolation by her mother (Paulson) - finds that he life starts to unravel after discovering that her mother is hiding a deep and dark secret.

Chaganty will direct from a script he co-wrote with Sev Ohanian, with production expected to begin on October 31st. Whoa, that's one hell of a way to spend your Halloween, eh? Meanwhile, Natalie Qasabian and Sev Ohanian will produce.

In addition to delighting fans with a sinister and stellar performance as Cordelia Goode for FX's AMERICAN HORROR STORY, enthusiasts of all things weird and wonderful can look forward to Paulson's role as Dr. Ellie Staple in M. Night Shyamalan's highly anticipated thriller GLASS. In the film, which stars Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, and Bruce Willis as three extraordinarily gifted individuals, Paulson's Dr. Staple is a  psychiatrist that specializes in clients who believe that they are superheroes. I have it on good authority that the trio are bound to make trouble for the good doctor, and you're not going to want to miss it.

Also in the cards for Paulson is a role in director Susanne Bier's BIRD BOX, an upcoming sci-fi thriller about a woman and a pair of children who are blindfolded and make their way through a dystopian setting along a river. After that, Paulson will star as Xandra in John Crowley's THE GOLDFINCH, a film about a boy in New York who is taken in by a wealthy Upper East Side family after his mother is killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
