Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska appear in new images from The Double
Though not all of his films are hugely successful, I’m finding myself liking Jesse Eisenberg more and more with each film he takes part in. He seems to always choose interesting parts and is paired with great talent. For his next film THE DOUBLE, he will be starring alongside Mia Wasikowska, Noah Taylor, Wallace Shawn and Yasmin Page. Directed by Richard Ayoade (who played Jamarcus in last year’s comedy THE WATCH), THE DOUBLE sounds bizarre but compelling.
Here’s the synopsis for THE DOUBLE: Simon is a timid man, scratching out an isolated existence in an indifferent world. He is overlooked at work, scorned by his mother, and ignored by the woman of his dreams. The arrival of a new co-worker, James, 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.
There’s no release date set right now, but it’s one to keep an eye out for. (Playlist)
