We really weren’t expecting this kind-of remake a classic novel! Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult are to star in a romantic movie that’s based on George Orwell’s futuristic epic, 1984.
The movie, called Equals, will be directed by Drake Doremus and written by Moon screenwriter, Nathan Parker.
“I can’t believe I agreed to do it” said Kristen of her casting.
“I’m terrified of it. Though it’s a movie with a really basic concept, it’s overtly ambitious.”
The star said that the new movie will be a slightly updated version of the 1956 film “1984” about a repressed society.
“In Equals, things go wrong because you can’t deny the humanity in everyone. It’s the most devastating story. I trust Drake’s process and I know we will do something really natural and real” she said.
“But I told Drake, ‘Don’t expect that I am going to be able to do this. It’s too hard.’ But he wouldn’t take ‘no’ for an answer. I’ve given directors disclaimers before, but never this much.”
“It’s a love story of epic, epic, epic proportion,” she added. “I’m scared.”
The movie begins filming later this year.
