Sony Pictures Classics Picks Up Sundance Wall Street Drama ‘Equity’

Sony Pictures Classics Picks Up Sundance Wall Street Drama 'Equity'

Sony Pictures Classics has acquired worldwide rights to “Equity,” the first female-driven Wall Street drama. The movie stars Anna Gunn (“Breaking Bad”), James Purefoy (“The Following”), Sarah Megan Thomas (“Backwards”) and Alysia Reiner (“Orange is the New Black”). 
The film follows female investment banker Naomi Bishop as she navigates a world where big money and high-power is brutal and fierce. When a controversial IPO threatens the delicate balance of power and confidentiality, Naomi finds herself swimming in a shark pool of politics and deception. With an aggressive prosecutor (Alysia Reiner) from her past on her heels, plus a strained relationship with her junior, Erin (Sarah Megan Thomas), Naomi is forced to reexamine her own ambitions and the cutthroat world in which she lives in, one where women have yet to break the glass ceiling. 
The film is directed by Meera Menon. Broad Street Pictures’ Reiner and Thomas serve as producers. “Equity” will be released by Sony Pictures Classics sometime in the near future.
