Richard Ayoade's dark comedy The Double is set to make its Sundance premiere on January 17th in the fest's Spotlight section, and in honor of the occasion we have the official poster and an international teaser trailer to share.
The Double is directed by Ayoade, who co-wrote the script with Avi Korine. It stars Jesse Eisenberg in a dual role along with Mia Wasikowska, Wallace Shawn, Yasmin Paige, Noah Taylor, James Fox, Cathy Moriarty, Chris O'Dowd, Sally Hawkins, Craig Roberts, and Paddy Considine. Some cast, right? We'll be keeping an eye out for Magnolia Pictures to announce the release date.
Simon James is a ghost. Friends, family, and coworkers meet his every action with complete indifference. He grimly goes through the motions, hoping for recognition that never comes. All of this changes when James Simon arrives.
Physically, James and Simon are dead ringers. Yet, in temperament, James is everything Simon is not: personable, spontaneous, assertive, and desirable. When James begins to take over Simon’s life, he is forced to act.
Jesse Eisenberg’s fantastic double performance is bolstered by a cast of seasoned character actors who bring Simon James’ gloomy retro world to life. Directed with a deftly comic hand and assured visual technique by Richard Ayoade, The Double is a stylish black comedy with acerbic wit to spare.
