Before Incendies director Denis Villeneuve made the masterful drama Prisoners starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal, the director and Gyllenhaal worked on a smaller thriller titled Enemy, which recently premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival to critical praise. The first teaser poster has arrived for the film. Check it out below.
The film, based on Nobel Prize-winning author José Saramago’s 2002 novel The Double, centers on Adam Bell (Gyllenhaal), a history professor who tries to track down his exact look-alike after seeing him in a movie. The film co-stars Mélanie Laurent as Bell’s girlfriend.
Indie distributor A24 picked up the distribution rights for the film. It’s expected that we’ll be seeing this in theaters sometime in 2014. Make sure to check back for more updates as they come our way.
