Plot details are unknown about the film, which is still untitled at the moment. However, The Hollywood Reporter, which was first to reveal the casting, states it will feature “a unique love story.” Doremus teased on Twitter, “New journeys on the horizon.”
The filmmaker’s last effort, Equals, starred Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart in a futuristic drama about a couple who fall in love in a society that did away with human emotion.
Meanwhile, Hunnam is set to star in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and is getting ready for the debut of The Lost City of Z, which will premiere during the New York Film Festival later this year. His future costar, Seydoux, had a breakthrough moment for U.S. audiences with Blue is the Warmest Color, followed by the James Bond blockbuster Spectre and the acclaimed sci-fi film The Lobster. She can next be seen as Belle in a live-action French version of Beauty and the Beast, opening in limited release Sept. 23, opposite Vincent Cassel as the titular cursed prince turned monstrous creature.
