Sony Pictures Acquires Rights to Female-Driven ‘EQUITY’


Anna Gunn by Gage Skidmore

Sony Pictures Classics announced last month that they have acquired worldwide rights to the first female-driven Wall Street film, EQUITY. The film had its world premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

EQUITY is directed by Meera Menon (Farah Goes Bang) with a screenplay by Amy Fox, from a story by Sarah Megan Thomas, Alysia Reiner and Amy Fox.

The film stars Anna Gunn (“Breaking Bad”), James Purefoy (“The Following”), Sarah Megan Thomas (Backwards) and Alysia Reiner (“Orange is the New Black”).

Senior investment banker Naomi Bishop’s (Anna Gunn) world of high-power big money is brutal and fierce, and one she thrives in.

When a controversial IPO threatens the fragile balance of power and confidentiality, Naomi finds herself entangled in a web of politics and deception.

With an aggressive prosecutor (Alysia Reiner) from her past on her heels, and a strained relationship with her junior, Erin (Sarah Megan Thomas) Naomi is forced to re-examine her own ambitions, and the cut-throat world she loves—one where women have yet to break the glass ceiling.
