Based on the action-packed, unbelievable true story of money, power and opulent decadence, Icon Home Entertainment brings The Devil's Double to Blu-ray Disc and DVD on 26th December 2011. This white-knuckle trip deep into the lawless playground of excess and violence is highlighted by a star-making turn from Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger) in an unforgettable dual performance as Saddam Hussein's sadistic party-boy son, the "Black Prince" Uday, as well as army lieutenant Latif Yahia, the man thrust into the highest echelons of the "royal family" when he's ordered to become Uday's body double.
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 (Ludivine Sagnier), 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 realises that escape from the devil's den will only come at the highest possible cost.
Featuring a riveting double performance by Dominic Cooper (An Education, Mamma Mia!) in the roles of Latif Yahia and Uday Hussein, The Devil's Double is a dynamic, chilling adaptation of Latif Yahia's autobiographical novel, charting one man's defiant struggle to survive a viper's pit of corruption and brutality. The film is directed by Lee Tamahori (Die Another Day, XxX: State of the Union) and written by Michael Thomas (Backbeat, Scandal).
