Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska have joined the Richard Ayoade-directed The Double with shooting to start this spring in the U.K. Inspired by Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s classic novella, the story centers on an insignificant man driven to near breakdown by the appearance of his doppelganger. Submarine helmer Ayoade co-wrote the script with Avi Korine. Alcove Entertainment’s Amina Dasmal and Robin Fox are producing with Andy Stebbing to co-produce. The U.K.’s Film4 is co-financing while Protagonist Pictures has international sales and will begin meetings on the project at the EFM in Berlin next week.
