Pacific Rim

Story by Jack Foley

CHARLIE Hunnam is set to unite with Lea Seydoux for the next film from Like Crazy director Drake Doremus.

The as-yet untitled project is being described as a ‘unique love story’ by sources quoted by The Hollywood Reporter. Beyond that, plot details are being kept under wraps.

Rich Greenberg wrote the screenplay.

Doremus also recently helmed the science-fiction film Equals starring Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult.

Hunnam, hitherto best known for TV series Sons of Anarchy, will shortly be seen in Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, as well as James Gray’s Lost City of Z.

He’s also attached to the remake of Papillon, the 1973 prison escape drama that starred Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman. Danish helmer Michael Noer is attached to direct.

Seydoux most recently starred opposite Daniel Craig in the latest James Bond adventure, Spectre, and was also in Yorgos Lanthimos’ critically-acclaimed The Lobster.
