Premiering at this years Sundance film festival is the doppelganger thriller The Double starring Jesse Eisenberg. For those not a fan of his work you may want to stay away as you will see him twice as many times in this engaging film. I think the trailer looks pretty good so far and i’m sure many will flock at the festival to see this. The Double is directed by Richard Ayoade and stars Jesse Eisenberg, Mia Wasikowska, Wallace Shawn, Yasmin Paige, Noah Taylor, James Fox, Cathy Moriarty, Chris O'Dowd, Sally Hawkins, Craig Roberts and Paddy Considine.
I’m curious to see how Jesse and Mia work together in this film as it’s rumored their relationship maybe a little shaky right now. This film has been picked up by Magnolia Pictures and should get a full theater run after it is over. Check out the images and international trailer and look for more on this soon!
Eisenberg plays Simon, 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.
