Sean Bean's Next Movie
Sean is currently on location in Berlin filming EQUILIBRIUM.
This was formerly called LIBRIUM but the name was changed last month. It stars Christian
Bale and Emily Watson. The story is set in a future society, where citizens are prevented
from expressing emotions and are controlled by militaristic police with the enforced use
of a dehumanizing drug.
An agent, John Preston (Christian Bale), whose job it is to administer the drug, finds
himself experiencing a spiritual conversion, which puts him in direct conflict with his
position and his superiors.
He joins an underground resistance group in an attempt to destroy the city's ruler.
Taye Diggs plays Preston's partner, while Angus MacFadyen plays the "villain"
who controls the society.
Director Kurt Wimmer wrote the 104-page script for the film, which is produced by
Dimension Films and Blue Tulip Productions (Jan De Bont and Lucas Foster).
I don't know what part Sean is playing yet. (sorry) Production started on Equilibrium
began on 19 September 2000, in Europe, with locations including Berlin.
