‘The Devil’s Double’ Trailer Echoes ‘Scarface’

By  · Published on April 26th, 2011

Dominic Cooper is pulling double duty for Lee Tamahori’s forthcoming film about an Iraqi man forced to become a look-alike (or fiday) for Uday Hussein. The first trailer for The Devil’s Double feels a lot like Scarface, right down to the scantily clad women and blow.

It’s definitely got an energy to it.

Check it out for yourself:

Adding Depeche Mode certainly didn’t make it less weird. And tell me that Uday doesn’t come off a lot like Tony Montana here. This whole damned thing looks like a hellish joyride covered in mustaches and Armani.

In short, I’m sold.

The Devil’s Double hits theaters July 29th, 2011.

Would you go see it?
