It’s been a little longer than we thought, but after a side trip to Sundance and some good reviews, Iraq drama The Devil’s Double is finally on track for release. And now the trailer has arrived, which can be watched below.

Starring Tamara Drewe’s Dominic Copper in the dual lead roles, Double unspools the crazed true story of Latif Yahida, an army lieutenant plucked from the ranks because of his close resemblance to Saddam Hussein’s son, Uday.

Yahida was selected to become Uday’s body double, positioned to throw off attackers and to stand in for him at certain events. Given a choice between complying or seeing his family slaughtered, Yahida agreed and was thrust into Uday’s debauched world of power, greed, lust and madness. Soon he’s desperate to escape, but caught up in the Hussein world.

Take a look at the trailer and let us know your thoughts.

Directed by Lee Tamahori and also featuring Ludivine Sagnier, Philip Quast and Jamie Harding, The Devil’s Double is out on August 12.
