Sarah Paulson is ready to bring the scares – and not just in another season of American Horror Story. The Emmy-winning actress will lead Searchlight Pictures’ upcoming horror-thriller Dust.

The film follows a woman who is trapped by increasingly perilous dust storms. Haunted by her past encounters with a threatening presence, she takes extraordinary measures to protect her family.

“Sarah is an extraordinary artist and we are thrilled to be working with her again,” said Searchlight Presidents David Greenbaum and Matthew Greenfield. 

Paulson previously starred in Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave for Searchlight. As a long-time collaborator with Ryan Murphy on his American Horror Story anthology, she’s also no stranger to the horror genre. Paulson received an Emmy Award for her role as Marcia Clark in American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson; she recently landed another nom for playing Linda Tripp in American Crime Story: Impeachment

Dust comes from writer and co-director Karrie Crouse (Westworld) and co-director Will Joines. The film will debut as a Hulu Original in the US. International distribution will be announced at a later date.

Production on Dust will begin in late August.
