Guy Pearce Joins Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult in ‘Equals’

Guy Pearce will join Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult in the futuristic indie movie “Equals.”

Filming is set to commence in Japan and Singapore in August. 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.

Drake Doremus, who worked with Pearce on his feature “Breathe In,” is directing from a script by Nathan Parker.

Ridley Scott’s Scott Free is producing with Route One. Producers are Scott, Michael Schaefer, Ann Ruark, and Jay Stern and Chip Diggins of Route One, who are also financing. Executive producers are Mike Pruss, Lee Jea Woo,  Choi Pyung Ho and Russell Levine.

“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.
