Guy Pearce and Jacki Weaver board Equals

Wednesday, July 16, 2014 11:17 PM | Anonymous

Guy Pearce and Jacki Weaver have joined the cast of Drake Doremus' sci-fi drama, Equals.

They join Nicholas Hoult, Kristen Stewart, Kate Lyn Sheil and Aurora Perrineau who are already attached. 

Written by Nathan parker (Moon), the film is futuristic love story set in a society called The Collective, where emotions have been eradicated. The perfect world without greed, poverty, violence or emotion is threatened when a new disease called SOS, or Switched-On-Syndrome, enables people to feel depression, fear and love. Those with emotions are banished from the community. 

Hoult plays Silas, a young man who becomes infected and banished from The Collective. He meets Nia (Stewart), a young woman who seems to understand what he is going through - she has feelings but knows how to hide them. He confronts her and they discover a connection that sparks feelings of love for the first time. 

According to Deadline, Weaver is in talks to play a powerful woman trained as a doctor who helps Silas and Nia.
