Director Drake Doremus is plotting his follow-up to Equals now that The Hollywood Reporter reveals Léa Seydoux and soon-to-be King Arthur Charlie Hunnam are boarding his as-yet-untitled project.
Billed as a “unique love story,” Scott Free Productions is on board to produce – extending its collaboration with the filmmaker following work on Equals – though plot details are practically non-existent at such an early stage. We understand that Rich Greenberg is the brain behind the script, though, and that Léa Seydoux and Charlie Hunnam are central to the goings-on of Doremus’ latest.
Granted, the director may have split audiences with the Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult sci-fi film Equals, but Like Crazy – which featured Felicity Jones and the late Anton Yelchin – displayed the director’s deft touch for all things romance, a knack he’ll no doubt call upon for this latest project.
In terms of Drake Doremus‘ newfound duo, we know that Seydoux, who enjoyed a remarkable breakout in Blue is the Warmest Color followed by Skyfall, is currently rubbing shoulders with Rachel Weisz and Colin Farrell in dystopian comedy, The Lobster. As for Hunnam, he’s lined up James Gray’s The Lost City of Z, while King Arthur and the Legend of the Sword is due to march directly into theaters on March 24, 2017.
