Trivia Equals

Many media outlets falsely reported 'Equals' to be a remake or a romantic take of George Orwell's novel '1984'. The film has nothing to do with the novel. Jennifer Lawrence read the script with co-star Nicholas Hoult and loved it but she stated that she cannot see herself playing the lead character. Lawrence co-starred in Doremus' 'Like Crazy' (2011). Filming took place in Japan and Singapore.
