Remember the surprise 2018 hit thriller film ‘Searching‘? The movie was made on a budget of less than $1 million and ended up making over $70 million at the box office.
The director behind the film, Aneesh Chaganty, and his writing partner Sev Ohanian, are ready to surprise the box office again.
Their latest project, Run, is described as a psychological thriller starring the great Sarah Paulson.
Paulson playing an intense and overbearing mother and newcomer Kiera Allen as her teenaged daughter, who’s raised in isolation and soon discovers that her relationship with mommy dearest is more sinister than it appears.
What’s interesting about this project is that it’ll be Allen’s first time acting in a feature. The actress and her character use a wheelchair to get around. According to the reports, this is the first studio film to ever star a wheelchair user.
Allen spoke about this in a recent interview…
To see a character in a wheelchair who is, not to give too much away, but who is really kind of a hero and is her own person, and has her own mind and her own journey independent of her disability, and to see a character whose journey is really not defined by her disability; it’s defined by who she is as a person is a really cool thing because I’m an actor, I’m a person first. I don’t come in to play a disability, I come in to play a person, and to have that opportunity is really cool.
We’re all about that. Hopefully this is the start of something new in Hollywood. Check out the trailer for ‘Run’ below. It’s set to hit theaters May 8, 2020.
