The Double Trailer: Here Are Two Jesse Eisenbergs

Based on the Fyodor Dostoyevsky novella The Double, the latest from director Richard Ayoade (who did 2010's Submarine and co-starred in last summer's The Watch) stars Jesse Eisenberg and presumably follows the book's paranoid protagonist, who goes mad obsessing over the idea that his co-worker has stolen his identity. A total pushover, he repeatedly meets the man who is his exact double and yet, personality-wise, his opposite in every other way. Basically, Jesse Eisenberg is going to update what we refer to as Single White Female–ing. And it's going to be totally creepy.
