Kristen Stewart has signed on to play the lead in Equals, a sci-fi love story co-starring Nicholas Hoult.

But the actress says she’s very nervous about her new role.

Stewart shared in a recent interview, “I can’t believe I agreed to do it… I’m terrified of it.”

The star went on to describe the film as a modern version of 1984, explaining, “Though it’s a movie with a really basic concept, it’s overtly ambitious.”

Stewart added, “It’s a love story of epic, epic, epic proportion.”

Drake Doremus, who’s directing the movie said he thought “Nick and Kristen would have great chemistry.”

The Like Crazy filmmaker revealed that Hoult’s on-again girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence turned down the role.

Equals begins production later this year.
