Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska set to star in Richard Ayoade’s The Double
After wowing audiences as Mark Zuckerberg in THE SOCIAL NETWORK, Jesse Eisenberg has been relatively quiet. He had the forgettable 30 MINUTES OR LESS, but that was just about it. Apparently sick of the break, Eisenberg has just signed on for THE DOUBLE. It’s described as a comedy, but it reads more like a drama and centers around a an average man that’s driven insane when he discovers his doppelganger. The film will be directed by Richard Ayoade (who directed SUBMARINE and will star in NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH), who co-wrote the script with Avi Korine.
Along with Eisenberg, the film is also set to star Mia Wasikowska (ALICE IN WONDERLAND). I haven’t made up my mind on Wasikowska yet, but with the proper material, I think she can be a decent actress. There’s no word on an official start date yet.
