Nathan Parker (“Moon”) wrote “Equals,” which marks a departure for Doremus as it’s a sci-fi love story. The duo have spent the past year developing the project, which Steven Rales’ Indian Paintbrush is planning to put into production early next year.
Doremus is coming off the infidelity drama “Breathe In,” which stars Guy Pearce, Felicity Jones, Amy Ryan and Mackenzie Davis. He has a strong rapport with Indian Paintbrush, which produced and financed his breakout film “Like Crazy.”
“Twilight” sensation Stewart next stars in the indies “Camp X-Ray” and “Sils Maria.” She’s repped by Gersh and McKuin Frankel Whitehead.
Hoult, who reprises the role of Beast in Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” recently wrapped George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” and the indie thriller “Dark Places.” He’s repped by UTA, 42 and attorney Fred Toczek.
