Need someone to give a fraught, harrowing performance? Elisabeth Moss is who you need to call. The distress she’s able to portray in The Handmaid’s Tale is just one of the reasons that show is so compelling, which bodes well for Run Rabbit Run, a thriller that will reunite Moss with the show’s director, Daina Reid.
Run Rabbit Run is penned by novelist Hannah Kent, based on her own original idea. Described by Deadline as a “modern-day ghost story”, it centers on 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.” Moss will star and produce, adding to her list of tense thriller roles.
Reid works as an actor and a director, with credits that include episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale, The Outsider, Space Force, and many more. Moss recently starred in The Invisible Man, giving another stressful performance in one of the year’s biggest hits. She can be seen right now in Shirley, delivering a venomous turn as horror author Shirley Jackson. Next up for Moss is Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch.
