“Equals” is set in a world where there is no greed, no poverty, no violence, and no emotion. But a new disease is threatening everyone: SOS, or Switched-On-Syndrome, activating depression, sensitivity, fear, love — and once a person is overtaken, they are sent away  and never seen again.

Pearce can been in “The Rover” and his credits include “The King’s Speech,” “Animal Kingdom,” John Hillcoat’s “Lawless” and Kathryn Bigelow’s The Hurt Locker.” He’s represented by CAA, Sally Long-Innes at Independent Talent Group and by Anne Churchill-Brown at Shanahan Management.
