Lionsgate and Herrick Entertainment today announced they have acquired North American distribution rights to the gripping drama The Devil’s Double. The Devil’s Double takes a look at the House of Saddam Hussein through the eyes of the man who was forced to become the double of Hussein’s sadistic son.
The movie is directed by Lee Tamahori. It stars Dominic Cooper playing a dual role as both Latif Yahia and Uday Hussein. It is loosely based on Latif Yahia’s autobiography, adapted for the screen by Michael Thomas.
