With his sci-fi romance “Equals” still in theaters, writer/director Drake Doremus has already lined up his next project. Described as “a unique love story,” the untitled film will star Charlie Hunnam and Léa Seydoux. No plot details are being revealed at this time. The Hollywood Reporter first broke the story.
Rich Greenberg, best known for his theater and television work, is writing the screenplay. Prior to “Equals,” which stars Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart as two members of a future society in which all emotional displays are verboten (they fall in love, natch), Doremus came to attention for writing and directing “Breathe In” and “Like Crazy.”
Hunnam will soon appear in both James Gray’s “The Lost City of Z” and Guy Ritchie’s “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword,” while Seydoux was most recently seen in “Spectre” and Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Lobster.” This new film doesn’t yet have a release date.
