'Run' Filmmakers on Their Cinematic Influences, the Film's 'Mission: Impossible' Moment, and More

Mission: Impossible is Searching director Aneesh Chaganty‘s favorite film franchise, so it’s not a surprise that he uses imagery from that movie to describe the centerpiece action sequence in his newest thriller, Run. In a recent interview, Chaganty told me that one of his movie’s biggest camera moves “was intentionally supposed to evoke the pullout of Tom Cruise on the Burj Khalifa.”

But Mission: Impossible wasn’t on the primary list of cinematic inspirations for this nail-biter of a story about a wheelchair-using teenager (Kiera Allen) who finds herself essentially trapped in her own house by her overbearing mother (Sarah Paulson), who’s harboring a dark secret. Read on to learn which films directly inspired this suspenseful yarn (our full review calls it “relentless” and “tense as hell”), and hear from Chaganty and producer Natalie Qasabian about the biggest challenges to mounting this production, storyboarding the entire film, and more.

Run lands on Hulu on November 20, 2020. Be sure to head back to /Film on Friday to read the rest of this interview, which covers the movie’s easter eggs and touches on Searching 2.
