Nicholas Hoult has been cast in the movie Equals for a long time. The movies is based on 1984 by George Orwell. The project has a lot of hype but I don't think it is going to be that great. I think studio executives start getting enamored with things that sound good on paper but rarely turn out that great when filmed. Kristen Stewart jumped at the chance to star opposite Nicholas but it took a long time for her to get the part. She is the one who did the chasing for the part. Despite her interviews stating she was reluctant or scared she was desperate to get the role. She has been so desperate to get the role that Jennifer Lawrence told a couple of her friends that she would love if Nicholas would drop out of the role because she doesn't trust Kristen and is not particularly fond of her either. There is some bad blood and if Jennifer could have said no to anyone to be cast opposite her boyfriend it is Kristen Stewart.
