The Double Interview: Jesse Eisenberg & Richard Ayoade

Adapting a Dostoyevsky novella about a man suffering from a serious case of dual identity may not sound the most obvious idea for a movie.

But then The Double's director Richard Ayoade and star Jesse Eisenberg are not your average movie stars.

What they've crafted is something slightly odd, slightly genius and slightly detached.

We decided to speak to the duo about what drew them to the project - check it out below!

The Double is in UK cinemas from 4 April 2014.

And for more Eisenberg/Ayoade double-man goodness, check out our video below in which they laugh and joke about Batman vs Superman - shortly before it was announced that Eisenberg would be playing the movie's Big Bad Lex Luthor.
