Big news for Kristen Stewart and that one guy dating Jennifer Lawrence who isn't you, a.k.a., Nicholas Hoult: According to AP, the two have been cast to headline an upcoming remake of 1984, set to be titled Equals.
"I can't believe I agreed to do it," Stewart reportedly told AP. "I'm terrified of it. Though it's a movie with a really basic concept, it's overtly ambitious."
According to Stewart, Equals is a "slightly updated" remake of the 1956 film 1984, which in itself is based off of George Orwell's 1949 literary masterpiece that you probably read in high school English class, 1984. "It's a love story of epic, epic, epic proportion," Stewart added of the film. "I'm scared..."In Equals, things go wrong because you can't deny the humanity in everyone. It's the most devastating story."
Stewart and Hoult will play the two lovers, and the film will be directed by Like Crazy director Drake Doremus. "It's about love in a world where love really doesn't exist anymore," Doremus explained.
Equals will begin filming later this year.
