Like Crazy writer/director Drake Doremus has developed a reputation for crafting intimate and engrossing relationship dramas using his signature improvisational style, and for his next project the filmmaker plans to apply his talents to the sci-fi genre. I spoke with Doremus earlier this year at Sundance where he premiered his excellent new drama Breathe In, and the director noted that he planned on venturing “into the futuristic, semi sci-fi love story land,” but utilizing his improvisational style. Now Deadline reports that Doremus is courting Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult to star in the pic, titled Equals, for an early 2014 production start date.
Plot details regarding Equals are unknown at this point, but Moon scribe Nathan Parker penned the screenplay. Doremus’ shooting style involves improvising nearly every scene, so if Hoult and Stewart sign on, they’ll have a hefty job ahead of them. Hit the jump for news concerning Will Smith starring in a supernatural thriller.
