Toronto Start For Gyllenhaal's "Enemy"

TorontoFilm.Net reports that actor Jake Gyllenhaal will star, beginning next week, in the 'doppelganger' movie "An Enemy" for director Denis Villeneuve. 
The film adapts a novel by author José Saramago, that was inspired by author Fyodor Dostoevsky's  novella "The Double".
Gyllenhaal will portray a history teacher "...whose life is thrown off the rails when he discovers a man that appears to be his exact double physically, living nearby..."

Also starring are Isabella Rossellini ("Keyhole"), Mélanie Laurent ("Inglourious Basterds") and Sarah Gadon ("Cosmopolis").

The film starts shooting in Toronto towards late May 2012, with a release scheduled for 2013.
