Film4Video has released a new clip from Richard Ayoade’s The Double.
Stars Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska, Wallace Shawn, Yasmin Paige, Noah Taylor, James Fox, Cathy Moriarty, Chris O’Dowd, Sally Hawkins, Craig Roberts and Paddy Considine, is co-written by Avi Korine and produced by Amina Dasmal and Robin Fox, with executive producers including Michael Caine, Graeme Cox, Tessa Ross and Nigel Williams.
Loosely based on the novella by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Double follows Simon (Eisenberg), a timid, isolated man who’s overlooked at work, scorned by his mother, and ignored by the woman of his dreams (Wasikowska). The arrival of a new co-worker, James (also played by Eisenberg), 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.
