The hit television miniseries The People vs. O.J.Simpson: American Crime Story has opened up a world of possibilities for Sarah Paulson. With the actress joining the upcoming thriller Lost Girls. The Amazon production will be directed by Liz Garbus, her first ever feature film that is not a documentary. This fictional feature following her work on titles including The Farm: Angola USA and What Happened, Miss Simone?
The behind-the-scenes crew are in place to see the Langley Park production pair Kevin McCormick and David Kennedy as producers. With Pamela Hirsch as an executive producer. Adapted from Robert Kolker’s 2013 nonfiction book, the screenplay written by Michael Werwie will explore the search of a mother for her child in Long Island. Only to come across four deceased bodies.
Paulson Turns Recognition To Refugee Crisis
While Lost Girls will explore the unsolved murders of women in the escort business, the SAG Award winner used her platform to raise awareness for the plight of refugees during the temporary ban of Muslims from seven various countries last week. Portraying attorney Marcia Clark in the FX series, the 42-year old chose to deflect attention to that cause rather than her personal achievement.
“Any money you have to spare, please donate to the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union),” appealed the actress. “It’s a vital organization that relies entirely on our support... It wasn’t a tough decision to come up with what I wanted to say. I mean, I am not an immigrant. I was born here... So in terms of how I can speak about it from a personal standpoint from my youth or something, (that) wasn’t available to me, so I just wanted to have an opportunity to mention the inclusivity that I think is required right now in general, and the ACLU to me represents that across the board. And they do really rely on funds from people like you and me at this time."
Sarah Front and Center of All Girl Ensemble
A sure sign that you've made the Hollywood elite is pairing up with the likes of Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway and a host of another big names. Set to star in the ensemble Ocean's 8 for a June 8, 2018 release, Paulson will play the character Tammy as Bullock's Debbie Ocean attempts to pull of a con for the ages.
Paulson's career on the big screen to date have not been glittered with major roles. From What Women Want to 12 Years a Slave and Game Change. Wostly appearing in smaller supporting capacities. This should propel the SAG winner back into contention for more honors.
