"The Devil's Double": Sex, Power, Too Much Money

Sneak Peek the new poster supporting Liongate's upcoming R-rated dramatic thriller "The Devil's Double", directed by Lee Tamahori ("Die Another Day"), starring Dominic Cooper, Philip Quast Ludivine Sagnier and Raad Rawi :

"...Based on a true story, 'The Devil's Double' takes a white-knuckle ride deep into the lawless playground of excess and violence known as Bagdad, 1987. Summoned from the frontline to Saddam Hussein's palace, Iraqi army lieutenant 'Latif Yahia' (Cooper) 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' (Cooper), 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' (Sangnier), 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..."

"The Devil's Double" opens July 29, 2011.
