Sarah Paulson’s movie ‘Run’ will no longer receive a theatrical release in the US.
The horror thriller, which also stars newcomer Kiera Allen, had been due to be released into cinemas by Lionsgate on 8 May, to coincide with Mother’s Day weekend because of the film’s themes of motherhood gone wrong, but it will now stream on Hulu after the original plans were disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, a number of broadcasters were keen to land the rights to the film and it will still be released theatrically in selected international markets.
Director Aneesh Chaganty said: “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.
“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.”
A premiere date has yet to be announced…
