It's safe to say that writer/director Drake Doremus knows his way around complicated romances and relationships. From the long distance pangs of "Like Crazy," to the fantastical urges of "The Beauty Inside" (watch it in full here), to the domestic heat of "Breathe In," he's turned over the tangles of men and women in a variety of satisfying set-ups, and now he's looking to change up the game. Currently doing press rounds in the U.K. to promote "Breathe In" which is now in theatres there, Doremus revealed his next movie will take his preoccupations to a whole other realm.

Drake Doremus

It's safe to say that writer/director Drake Doremus knows his way around complicated romances and relationships. From the long distance pangs of "Like Crazy," to the fantastical urges of "The Beauty Inside" (watch it in full here), to the domestic heat of "Breathe In," he's turned over the tangles of men and women in a variety of satisfying set-ups, and now he's looking to change up the game. Currently doing press rounds in the U.K. to promote "Breathe In" which opens there this weekend, Doremus revealed his next movie will take his preoccupations to a whole other realm.

"My next movie is going to be a sci-fi, love story written by Nathan Parker, writer of 'Moon.' An incredible collaborator, we’ve been working together for almost a year now and hopefully we’ll be making the movie sooner than later," he told Little White Lies. To which we have to say, nice. The switch in screenwriters is interesting, considering Doremus has long worked with Ben York Jones, but perhaps that change in flavors is just what Doremus needs to start branching out and testing his limits in new ways.

"It’s not going to be out of hand, but I think it’s a logical next step, if that makes any sense without giving too much away, of the budget realm," Doremus said about the size of the movie, adding: "I’m really excited to explore a whole new thing while bringing my own passions to it and that’s what’s exciting about collaborating with someone who’s doing something totally different to you as together you can create something very original and unique by bringing different elements to the table."

Jeff Sneider from The Wrap adds that the film is titled "Equals" -- so yeah, color us curious. Until then, we'll wait for a U.S. release date for "Breathe In" starring Guy Pearce, Felicity Jones and Amy Ryan. Until then, here's another new clip from the movie.
