The last time we talked about Richard Ayoade‘s upcoming The Double, we shared some pretty cool images with Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska. Today, we’re back with the first official trailer for the movie which is set to premiere at TIFF this weekend, and as usual – we definitely recommend you to take a look. If you ask me – paranoia never looked better…
So, as we previously reported, Ayoade directed the whole thing from a script he co-wrote with Avi Korine, and the movie is based on Fyodor Dostoyevsky‘s novella of the same name.
It stars Eisenberg as Simon, a timid man, scratching out an isolated existence in an indifferent world who goes mad after finding out his life has been usurped by a doppelgänger.
And here’s the rest of the plot:
The arrival of a new co-worker, James, serves to upset the balance. James is both Simon’s exact physical double and his opposite — confident, charismatic and good with women. To Simon’s horror, James slowly starts taking over his life.
Beside Eisenberg and Wasikowska, the rest of The Double cast includes Wallace Shawn, Noah Taylor, Yasmin Paige, James Fox and Cathy Moriarty.
So, looks good or what?
