The Devil’s Double Movie Trailer has premiered. Lee Tamahori‘s The Devil’s Double (2011) stars Dominic Cooper, Ludivine Sangier, Raad Rawi, Dar Salim, and Philip Quast. The Devil’s Double (2011)’s plot synopsis: “Based on a gripping, unbelievable true story of money, power and opulent decadence, Lionsgate’s THE DEVIL’S DOUBLE takes a white-knuckle ride deep into the lawless playground of excess and violence known as Bagdad, 1987. Summoned from the frontline to Saddam Hussein’s palace, Iraqi army lieutenant Latif Yahia (Dominic Cooper) 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 (also Dominic Cooper), 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 (Ludivine Sangier), 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. Featuring a riveting double performance by Dominic Cooper (AN EDUCATION, MAMA MIA) in the roles of Latif Yahia and Uday Hussein, THE DEVIL’S DOUBLE is a dynamic, chilling adaptation of Latif Yahia’s autobiographical novel, charting one man’s defiant struggle to survive a viper’s pit of corruption and brutality. The film is directed by Lee Tamahori (DIE ANOTHER DAY, XXX: STATE OF THE UNION) and written by Michael Thomas (BACKBEAT, SCANDAL).”
We previously posted The Devil’s Double (2011) Movie Poster. Since this is a true story, this makes the proceedings in this movie trailer more remarkable and sadder since Latif Yahia had to endure it. The opulence on display is astonishing as well as the depravity and amoral behavior that occurrs within its dominion.
The Devil’s Double also stars Mem Ferda, Khalid Laith, Pano Masti, Nasser Memarziam, Selva Rasalingam, Mark Mifsud, and Mimoun Oaïssa.
