Mon May 14 2012Richard Ayoade pulled together a dream team to work on his debut feature ‘Submarine’: Ben Stiller exec produced; Arctic Monkey Alex Turner wrote the songs. Ayoade second film, ‘The Double’, is looking just as sparkly. He has written the script with Ave Korine (Harmony’s brother), loosely inspired by Dostoyevsky’s novel of the same name. In the book a shy, humble clerk is driven to a breakdown after meeting his doppelgänger – a man who looks just like him but, unlike him, is popular, and confident. Ayoade has cast Jesse Eisenberg (‘The Social Network’) to play his loser hero – overlooked at work, mocked by his mum and ignored by his dream woman (Mia Wasikowska, ‘Alice in Wonderland’, ‘Jane Eyre’).
