As theaters continue to remain closed due to the ongoing pandemic, more films seem to be going directly to streaming services.
Just last week it was announced that Netflix had purchased the rights to The Woman In The Window. Today, THR reported that Hulu has bought domestic rights to the highly anticipated horror thriller, Run, from Lionsgate.
Director Aneesh Chaganty, who also wrote and directed the critically acclaimed Searching, said in a statement, “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.”
This may be the latest purchase from the Disney-owned streaming service, but it comes as no surprise as its last purchase, Palm Springs, was well received by audiences and critics alike. We’re sure it won’t be the service’s last purchase either.
Currently, there are no other details about when subscribers might be able to view it on the platform, or even if there may be an additional fee to watch it similar to how Mulan is rolling out on Disney+.
Run is still expected to release theatrically overseas.
The film stars Sarah Paulson and newcomer Kiera Allen. The plot is said to revolve around a homeschooled teenager (Allen) that begins to suspect her mother (Paulson) is keeping a dark secret from her.
