STX Entertainment has acquired worldwide distribution rights to the Elisabeth Moss paranormal thriller “Run Rabbit Run,” the company announced Tuesday.
STXfilms will distribute director Daina Reid’s film in the U.S., U.K and Ireland with STXinternational set to introduce the film to buyers at this week’s Cannes Virtual Market. Umbrella Entertainment will be releasing in Australia and New Zealand.
Novelist Hannah Kent (“Burial Rites,” “The Good People,”) wrote the screenplay based on an original idea she developed with Carver Films. Moss stars as a fertility doctor who has a firm understanding of the cycle of life: you are born, you live, and then you die. But when she is forced to make sense of the increasingly strange behavior of her young daughter Mia, Sarah must challenge her own beliefs and confront a ghost from her past.
XYZ Films financed the film in collaboration with Finland’s IPR.VC and executive produce the project. 30WEST alse serve as executive producers.
Moss, the Emmy-winning star of “Mad Men” and “The Handmaid’s Tale,” is fresh off the box office success of Universal’s “The Invisible Man,” which grossed $124 million worldwide following its late February release despite the widespread shutdown of movie theaters worldwide in March.
“Elisabeth’s outstanding performance and the huge success of ‘The Invisible Man’ make her a theatrical force to be reckoned with,” STXfilms Motion Picture Group chairman Adam Fogelson said in a statement. “A genre film that reunites Elisabeth with “The Handmaid’s Tale” director Daina Reid is an incredible opportunity and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this film together.”
'Grey's Anatomy': Elizabeth Moss, Sarah Paulson and 9 More Stars You Forgot Appeared on the Show (Photos)
Honestly, who could forget Coach Taylor's appearance on "Grey's Anatomy" as bomb squad leader Dylan Young? Chandler appeared in Seasons 2 and 3 -- he guested on "Grey's" the same year that "Friday Night Lights" debuted on NBC.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan
Long before he was wielding a bat in the apocalypse of "The Walking Dead," Jeffrey Dean Morgan played one of "Grey's Anatomy"'s most tragic and beloved figures. Denny Duquette was the love interest to Izzy Stevens (Katherine Heigl) in Season 2, and their relationship inspired the interns to perform a questionable procedure on Denny's heart.
Shondaland fans will recognize this face from another ABC drama. But before he played the sexy Jake Ballard on "Scandal," Foley played Henry Burton, a dying patient without insurance who Teddy (Kim Raver) ends up marrying so he could have surgery. "Scandal" stars Bellamy Young, Josh Malina and Katie Lowes have also made appearances on "Grey's."
The "American Crime Story" star played Meredith's mother Dr. Ellis Grey in a flashback episode in Season 6, "The Time Warp." The episode revealed more about Ellis' relationship with Dr. Richard Webber.
The "Network" star had a guest spot in Season 5 of "Grey's Anatomy" as Dr. Margaret Campbell, one of the original surgeons at the hospital who comes back to help in the OR.
The pop star made an appearance on "Grey's Anatomy" during her "Sonny With a Chance" days as Hayley May in a guest role during Season 6.
Now one of the stars of "This Is Us," Mandy Moore guest-starred in one of the most-talked about episodes in "Grey's" history. She played a pregnant patient in the active shooter episodes in Season 6.
The "Handmaid's Tale" star had a guest role in Season 3 of "Grey's" as Nina Rogerson, the daughter of a patient.
Kyle Chandler isn't the only "Friday Night Lights" alum to make an appearance on the ABC medical drama. Zach Gilford popped up in Season 5 as a soldier trying to get in healthy enough condition to return to the field. (And Jesse Plemmons made an appearance in Season 2).
Leslie Odom Jr.
The Grammy- and Tony-winning "Hamilton" star made an appearance on the small screen way back in Season 5. He played P.J. Walling, a participant in a domino surgery.
