Succession spoilers follow.

Succession star Sarah Snook has been cast in upcoming horror movie, Run Rabbit Run.

The actress replaces The Handmaid's Tale actress Elisabeth Moss, originally attached to play the lead. Deadline reports that Moss had to pull out due to a scheduling conflict.

Directed by Australian filmmaker Daina Reid – known for being behind the camera of The Handmaid's Tale – the film tells the story of a fertility doctor. The protagonist's firm grasp on the cycle of life is tested when her young daughter begins to display increasingly strange behaviour.

Additional casting has yet to be revealed. Novelist Hannah Kent wrote the script from an original idea developed with Carver Films, with Anna McLeish and Sarah Shaw of Carver Films (behind Australian horror Relic) to produce.

Snook has recently returned as Shiv Roy on the third season of HBO hit show Succession. The actress opened up about her character in this new stage in a chat with Digital Spy earlier in the year.

"I think it's a development, really. It's seeing Shiv in her next stage, in her next stage of life, almost. We've seen her in one career, in politics, outside the family," Snook said. "We've seen her get married. And then we're seeing her having to manage being married to somebody who's in the family company as well.

"Really in this next season, we're looking at a woman who's, you know, needing to grow up in a different way, to self-identify – whether that's with family or not. It's part of her challenge this season."

Succession season 3 airs on HBO in the US, and Sky Atlantic and NOW in the UK.
