You say, you're a big fan of Jesse Eisenberg? Well, get a load of this! There's not one, but two Eisenbergs in this debut trailer for the doppelganger flick "The Double," which marks the sophomore effort of English comic actor/writer/director Richard Ayoade (Submarine).
Based on Fyodor Dostoyevsky's classic Russian novella, the movie depicts a nightmare scenario where a seemingly ordinary man (Eisenberg) teeters on the edge of sanity when he realizes a carbon copy of himself has inexplicably stepped into his world, jeopardizing the relationship with the woman he loves (played by Alice in Wonderland's Mia Wasikowska).
"The Double," which also stars Wallace Shawn, Noah Taylor, Yasmin Paige and James Fox, will have its world premiere this Saturday at the Toronto International Film Festival. A U.S. distribution deal will likely follow, though no announcements just yet.
Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska star in writer-director Richard Ayoade’s updating of the famous Dostoevsky novella about a man who finds his life being usurped by his doppelganger.
