The first trailer for THE DEVIL’S DOUBLE has been released. The movie stars Dominic Cooper who pays Sadam Hussein’s Son Uday body double Latif Yahia in a unbelievable true story money, power, drugs, sex and rock ‘n’ roll and reading the reviews for the film which premiered at Sundance this year we may have the new Scarface on our cards. Reviewers describe the movie as crazy insane and looking at the trailer below it does raise the level of excitement for this movie too.Last week we posted a poster for the movie which show Cooper painted in gold in a Scarface pose(see below ) which really shows how crazy and power mad Latif Lahia was, great stuff.
Last week we only knew the American release date of July 29th but Icon distribution (lionsgate in USA) have sent us the offical synopsis and a UK/Irish release date which will be August 12th.
Baghdad 1987, Latif Yahia (Dominic Cooper) is taken to see his former schoolmate Uday (also played by Cooper), eldest son to Saddam Hussein. Latif is told that a great honour had been bestowed upon him: because of the great likeness between them, he has been chosen to be Uday’s ‘fiday’ – his body double. Trapped, tortured and fearful for the safety of his family Latif has no choice but to comply. A chilling vision of the House of Saddam Hussein comes to life as Latif is forced to become part of Uday’s world, witness to the horror of his insane life of debauchery, excess and brutality. A world entrenched in betrayal and corruption and an experience for which he almost pays with his life on more than one occasion. THE DEVIL’S DOUBLE is based on true events.
