As all good peelers will know, Richard Ayoade‘s directorial follow-up to Submarine will be an adaptation of Fyodor Dostoyevsky novel The Double. Well now some new information about the film has been released!
Submarine actors Yasmin Paige (Jordana Bevan) and Noah Taylor (Lloyd Tate) have been added to the cast, which stars Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska in the lead roles, with James Fox and Wallace Shawn also set to appear.
The film focuses on Simon (Eisenberg), an insignificant man whose world is turned upside down by the sudden appearance of James, his exact doppelganger, who takes a job at Simon’s firm. While they may look the same the two men are very different, and it isn’t long before Simon begins to worry that James is taking over his life.
No release date has been confirmed for the movie yet, but filming begins on 20th May, so hopefully we won’t have to wait too long!
