STX Entertainment Nabs Global Rights For Elisabeth Moss Starrer ‘Run Rabbit Run’

STX Entertainment Nabs Global Rights For Elisabeth Moss Starrer ‘Run Rabbit Run’

Elisabeth’s new project “Run Rabbit Run” gets a distributor! Read below:

STX Entertainment has secured worldwide distribution rights to psychological thriller “Run Rabbit Run,” from Emmy-nominated “Handmaid’s Tale” director Daina Reid (“The Outsider”) and starring Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss (“The Invisible Man”).

While STXfilms will directly distribute “Run Rabbit Run” in the U.S., U.K. and Ireland, STXinternational will introduce the project to buyers at the ongoing virtual Cannes market. The deal was negotiated by Nate Bolotin of XYZ Films on behalf of the producers on the eve of the market.

Moss will play a fertility doctor who is frightened by her young daughter’s inexplicable memories of a past identity. The film is written by novelist Hannah Kent, who wrote from an original idea developed with Carver Films (“Relic”). Anna McLeish and Sarah Shaw of Carver Films are producing the film, and Moss will also produce alongside her partner Lindsey McManus. Principal photography is expected to commence on location in Australia in 2020.

XYZ Films (“Mandy”) will finance in collaboration with Finland’s IPR.VC and executive produce the project. “Run Rabbit Run” is a Carver Films production, with major production investment from XYZ and Screen Australia, in association with Film Victoria and the South Australian Film Corporation. 30WEST will also serve as executive producers. Umbrella Entertainment will distribute in Australia and New Zealand.

Adam Fogelson, chairman of the STXfilms Motion Picture Group, said: “Elisabeth’s outstanding performance and the huge success of ‘The Invisible Man’ make her a theatrical force to be reckoned with. 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.”

Moss will next be seen in Wes Anderson’s Cannes Official Selection “The French Dispatch,” as well as Taiki Waititi’s “Next Goal Wins.”

Moss is represented by WME, Independent Talent Group and Ribisi Entertainment Group. Reid is represented by RGM Artists and ICM Partners.

STX recently merged with Indian studio Eros International. The STX-Eros combine has plans to set up a base in China to tap into that giant market, and also leverage the existing Eros capacities in India. Eros also has a well-established distribution network around the world, and the combine is looking at maximizing synergies there. Post-theatrical, “Run Rabbit Run” could also benefit from access to streamer Eros Now, that has 187 million registered users and 26 million paying subscribers. Eros Now will imminently launch a premium, English-language tier, featuring content from NBCUniversal and STX content.

Elisabeth Moss To Star In And Produce Run Rabbit Run

Elisabeth Moss To Star In And Produce Run Rabbit Run

New Project for Elisabeth:

Even with her duties on The Handmaid’s Tale, Elisabeth Moss has found time to keep her film career ticking over, including with this year’s successful The Invisible Man. She’s going to work with Tale director Daina Reid on a new Australia-set thriller Run Rabbit Run.

XYZ Films and Carver Films are producing the new film, which has a script by novelist Hannah Kent developed from her original idea. Moss will star (and produce) as Sarah, a fertility doctor, with a firm understanding of the cycle of life. When she is forced to make sense of the increasingly strange behavior of her young daughter Mia, she must challenge her own beliefs and confront a ghost from her past.

Given Australia’s relatively lower Covid situation, it’s quickly becoming a destination for filmmakers, who can get back to work on movies. Moss, who last appeared in Josephine Decker’s Shirley, will be seen in Taika Waititi’s Next Goal Wins and Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch.
