||Action Corner|| The Devil’s Double

Welcome back to ACTION CORNER!!!  This time around, I will be tackling a trailer for a movie based on a true story about a powerful man from the middle east……no not that guy……or that other guy……but it is about one of his kids.  The Devil’s Double stars Dominic Cooper and is directed by Lee Tamahori.  The film is based on the book of the same name written by Latif Yahia, whom the story is about.  The film is being produced by Herrick Entertainment and distributed by Lionsgate.

While this isn’t an all around action film, it does look to have plenty in it.  Latif Yahia is an Iraqi forced to become the “body double” for Uday Hussein, the son of Iraqi dictator Sadam Hussein.

I really like the feel of this trailer.  The idea of forcing someone to become you, then that person slowly starts to become you just peaks my interest.  Dominic Cooper is one of my favorite actors, and I always enjoy seeing him pop up in new films.  He tends to stick to English dramas like Sony Pictures Classics and BBC FilmsAn Education or Paramount Vantage and Pathé‘s The Duchess, so I’m really looking forward to seeing him in a different role.  From the look of the trailer, Latif Yahia seems to really believe he is Hussein’s son.  The two “selfs” start to go at it with each other.  Which one is the real one?  Which one will the men listen to?  Your guess is as good as mine.

The Devil’s Double is set for a LIMITED release on July 29, 2011.
