Eisenberg and Wasikowska join Ayoade’s Submarine follow-up

Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska have joined the cast of director Richard Ayoade‘s upcoming film The Double, THR reports.

A loose adaptation of Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s darkly comic novella of the same name, Eisenberg will play a man “driven to near breakdown by the appearance of his doppelganger”.

Though Ayoade is best known for playing Moss on The I.T. Crowd, last year he made his feature directorial debut with the coming-of-age comedy Submarine (our fourth favourite film of 2011).

The Double is written by Ayoade and Avi Korine.

Discuss: Looking forward to Ayoade’s next feature?
