Dostoyevsky To Big Screen

Jesse Eisenberg, who starred as Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network, will play two roles in the film adaptation of the Dostoyevsky novella, The Double, about a man whose life begins to fall apart when a fellow who looks just like him arrives at his office and seems to be living his life better than he does.

The movie will be directed by Richard Ayoade, whose first feature film, the coming-of-age British comedy Submarine was a hit with critics. The Double is very dark, but The Guardian suggests that Ayoade will play it for laughs.
