Sarah Snook is stepping away from Waystar RoyCo and making her mark on the health care industry: the two-time Emmy-nominated “Succession” actress plays a fertility doctor in “Run Rabbit Run,” a horror/thriller that Netflix just snagged rights to. A press release announced the news.
From Emmy-nominated “Handmaid’s Tale” director Daina Reid, the film sees Snook playing a woman “who believes firmly in life and death, but after noticing the strange behavior of her young daughter, must challenge her own values and confront a ghost from her past.” Hannah Kent penned the script.
Snook will reprise her role as Shiv Roy in the upcoming fourth season of “Succession,” due later this year. The HBO smash hit follows a family wrestling for control over a media empire. “Pieces of a Woman” and “The Dressmaker” are among her film credits.
Reid made her feature debut with 2010 Australian rom-com “I Love You Too.” She’s directed episodes of “Shining Girls,” “Young Rock,” and “The Outsider,” among other series.
“Run Rabbit Run” is currently screening at Sundance. Netflix will release the film later this year.
