Guy Pearce Added to 'Equals', Kristen Gives Support to 'It Gets Better' Charity

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

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.

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

Brown at Shanahan Management.
