Starring Jesse Eisenberg...
Here is the latest trailer from Magnolia Pictures for The Double. The film, directed by Richard Ayoade, 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 and opens on May 9th.
The film is loosely based on Dostoyevsky's novella and 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.
