The Devil's Double

Oh *bleep* yea, now this is cool! Ain't It Cool News debuted the poster for what they've dubbed "Scarface of Arabia", a film called The Devil's Double that Lionsgate picked up at Sundance this year. Despite being an indie, it apparently is as epic as Scarface and Lawrence of Arabia, as it's about the real life "crazy motherfucker" Uday Hussein, son of Saddam who was quite an eccentric fellow, as you might be able to tell from the fact that everything, literally everything, on the poster is solid gold. Step aside Goldfinger, Uday is making himself heard now. Dominic Cooper plays Uday and his double, Latif Yahia. This all sounds good.

In addition to the new poster below, you can also watch the official trailer here. Have a closer look below:

The Devil's Double Poster

A chilling vision of the House of Saddam Hussein comes to life through the eyes of the man who was forced to become the double of Hussein's sadistic son. Based on Latif Yahia's memoirs, starring Dominic Cooper.

The Devil's Double is directed by veteran action filmmaker Lee Tamahori, director of The Edge, Mulholland Falls, Along Came a Spider, Die Another Day, xXx: State of the Union and Next previously. The screenplay was written by Michael Thomas, of Ladyhawke, Backbeat, Welcome to Woop Woop and B. Monkey. It's based on on Latif Yahia's memoirs first published in 1997. Lionsgate picked this up during the Sundance Film Festival this year. They'll be bringing The Devil's Double to limited theaters on July 29th. Can't wait.
