Principal photography has started on location in Malta on the action drama, "The Devil’s Double." Directed by "Die Another Day" director Lee Tamahori, the look at Saddam Hussein’s inner circle is being financed by the Belgian production company Corsan.
Dominic Cooper will portray the dual roles of ("Mama Mia!") Hussein’s son, Uday and Latif Yahia, his body double. Ludivine Sagnier ("Swimming Pool") will play Sarrab, Uday’s concubine and secret lover to Latif.
The screenplay, written by Michael Thomas, is based on Latif Yahia’s biographical novel,
