Run, the new psychological horror film starring Sarah Paulson, is headed to Hulu after Lionsgate pulled it from its release schedule for domestic theaters. The news comes hot on the heels of Lionsgate’s decision to do the same with Antebellum starring Janelle Monae.

The film is written by Aneesh Chaganty and Sev Ohanian with Chaganty also serving as a director on the film. The two previously teamed on Searching starring John Cho. It centers on a homeschooled teenager (Kiera Allen) who comes to believe that her mother (Paulson) is hiding a dark secret from her.

Run was initially scheduled for release in May before being postponed and ultimately pulled from the release schedule. While the film will still see a theatrical run in foreign markets, Deadline is reporting that Hulu acquired the domestic rights to the film in a competitive situation for an undisclosed amount.

No date has been announced at this time for the film’s release on the streaming platform.

Paulson has a number of projects in the works and some that are ready for release at the moment including Ratched, a new series developed by Ryan Murphy that tells the origin story of the infamous nurse from Once Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. It was also announced last week that she would be serving as a director on at least one episode of American Horror Stories, the new spin-off series from American Horror Story on which she has appeared in every season except for one.

The question now becomes, how will new film releases be rated and ranked with the lack of theatrical releases until theaters are again able to safely open to the public in the U.S.? Only time will tell on that front.

For now, check out the trailer for Run below, and look for it on Hulu soon!
