Sarah Snook aka Shiv Roy in “Succession” has been cast in “Run Rabbit Run,” (via Deadline) taking Elisabeth Moss’ role as the fertility doctor with concerns about her daughter. The rest of the plot is being kept under wraps, but clearly there’ll be some kind of conflict between mother and daughter somewhere in the Daina Reid film. It’ll be an interesting dynamic change for Snook’s work, since Shiv frequently goes up against her father Logan Roy (Brian Cox) in the critically acclaimed HBO series.
Snook has masterfully played plenty of other intense roles over the years, including in the mind-bending sci-fi thriller “Predestination” — wherein she stars opposite Ethan Hawke. The time-traveling story has action, heart, and tragedy in equal measure — and Sarah Snook carries the film squarely on her shoulders. Or as Nguyen Le put it for The Script Lab, “In a way, Snook is the heart of Predestination … and by the time the film ends, you’ll realize it is a strong and beautiful one.”
All this is to say that Sarah Snook can handle genre adventures as well as prestige drama, so “Run Rabbit Run” is definitely one to keep your eye on.
