Charlie Hunnam and Lea Seydoux will star in Drake Doremus' next film.

Doremus, the director behind Like Crazy, recently helmed the sci-fi film Equals, starring Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult.

The currently untitled project is being described as a "unique love story" by sources, but all other plot details are being kept under wraps. Rich Greenberg wrote the screenplay.

Ridley Scott's production banner, Scott Free Productions, which also worked with Doremus on Equals, is producing.

Hunnam, who starred on FX's hit series Sons of Anarchy, next will be seen in Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, which is set to hit theaters in March, and James Gray’s The Lost City of Z. He also is attached to star in production company Red Granite's remake of Papillon, the 1973 classic prison-escape drama toplined by Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman. Danish helmer Michael Noer is attached to direct, and Rami Malek is in talks to co-star.

Seydoux starred opposite Daniel Craig in the latest James Bond installment, Spectre, and was recently seen in theaters in the Yorgos Lanthimos' festival standout The Lobster.

Hunnam is repped by CAA, Brillstein Entertainment and Sloane Offer. Seydoux is repped by WME and the U.K.'s United.

Doremus is repped by UTA, the U.K.'s 42 and Morris Yorn.
