dominic cooper devils Debut Trailer For Lee Tamahoris ‘The Devil’s Double   Starring Dominic Cooper

Holy freaking ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUWXYZ this flick looks good! The good folks over at Yahoo have unveiled this debut trailer for Lee Tamahori’s (The Edge, Along Came a Spider) ‘The Devil’s Double.’ In the film  Dominic Cooper plays Uday Hussein, the psychopathic son of Saddam Hussein, and his double, Latif Yahia, who’s memoirs the film is based on. ‘The Devil’s Double’ earned glowing reviews at the Sundance Film Festival earlier in the year. ‘The Devil’s Double’ has a July 29th release date in the US, there doesn’t seem to be a UK release date at this moment in time – fingers crossed soon!

Summoned from the frontline to Saddam Hussein’s palace, Iraqi army lieutenant Latif Yahia 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, 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, 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. Cast: Dominic Cooper, Ludivine Sagnier, Mimoun Oaissa, Raad Rawi, Philip Quast.
