The Devil's Double looks like one hell of an awesome film, that could go down as a corruption classic film like Scarface. It just has all those insane elements that makes for badass film. Lionsgate released a trailer for the movie that you have to watch.
The film was directed by Lee Tamahori and stars Dominic Cooper who pull's off some double duty acting skills by playing two different roles in the film... Latif Yahia and Uday Hussein. The film is based on a true story, and was adapted from the autobiographical novel by Yahia. It's about a man who is forced to become the double of Saddam Hussein's sadistic son. Michael Thomas wrote the script.
Here's the synopsis for the film:
Summoned from the frontline to Saddam Hussein's palace, Iraqi army lieutenant Latif Yahia is thrust into the highest echelons of the "royal family" when he's ordered to become the 'fiday' -- or body double -- to Saddam's son, the notorious "Black Prince" Uday Hussein, a reckless, sadistic party-boy with a rabid hunger for sex and brutality. With his and his family's lives at stake, Latif must surrender his former self forever as he learns to walk, talk and act like Uday. But nothing could have prepared him for the horror of the Black Prince's psychotic, drug-addled life of fast cars, easy women and impulsive violence. With one wrong move costing him his life, Latif forges an intimate bond with Sarrab, Uday's seductive mistress who's haunted by her own secrets. But as war looms with Kuwait and Uday's depraved gangster regime threatens to destroy them all, Latif realizes that escape from the devil's den will only come at the highest possible cost.
The movie hits theaters on July 29th and I can't wait to see it! Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think!
