Sci Fi Wire
Actor Angus MacFadyen, who appears in the upcoming SF movie Equilibrium, told SCI FI Wire that the futuristic political film is being delayed indefinitely in reaction to the current political climate. "I have a feeling that because of 9/11, since the film is very much about that the enemy is within, it may be too dark for right now," MacFadyen said in an interview.
The film tells the story of a future society
in which the population is forced to take a drug that suppresses
all emotions. When a government agent (Christian Bale) starts
to experience feelings, he falls into conflict with his bosses.
MacFadyen would play the highest-up boss. "I play the president
of the world, who is a bit of a fascist," MacFadyen said.
"Everybody thinks he's a nice guy, but actually, he's the
baddie." Equilibrium was produced by Dimension Films and
was formerly titled Librium.
