‘House of Cards’ Actress Kate Lyn Sheil Joins Sci-Fier Opposite Guy Pearce, Kristen Stewart

Kate Lyn Sheil (“House of Cards”) will join Guy Pearce, Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult in the sci-fi movie “Equals.”

Producers are Ridley Scott, Michael Schaefer, Ann Ruark, and Jay Stern and Chip Diggins of Route One, which is also financing. Exec producers are Mike Pruss, Lee Jea Woo, Choi Pyung Ho and Russell Levine.

Drake Doremus (“Like Crazy”) is directing from a script by Nathan Parker (“Moon”).

The story is set in a world where there is no greed, no poverty, no violence, and no emotion. But a new disease is threatening everyone by activating depression, sensitivity, fear, love.

Mister Smith Entertainment is handling international sales on the film and launched the project to buyers at the recent Cannes Film Market, selling the film in over 35 territories.

UTA Independent Film Group arranged financing and will sell the North American rights to the film.

Sheil will appear in “The Heart Machine” and “Listen Up Philip,” starring Elizabeth Moss and Jason Schwartzman. She’s represented by CAA and One Entertainment.
