A24 and DirecTV are partnering to acquire “Equals,” the sci-fi drama directed by Drake Doremus and starring Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult.

“Equals” follows the romance between Stewart and Hoult, two people drawn together in a society without emotions. The film premiered to positive notices at TIFF and the Venice Film Festival earlier this year.

“Equals” is the latest in a string of joint acquisitions by A24 and DirecTV, as they recently picked up the Emma Roberts thriller “February” and Ellen Page’s apocalypse drama “Into the Forest,” both also out of TIFF. The plan for “Equals” is to have DirecTV premiere it first, followed by A24’s rollout in select theaters.

No release date has been set.
