Here is an extract from an interview with Jesse Eisenberg originally posted on collider.com. Jesse takes the lead role in Yasmin’s latest film The Double which is currently in production.
Q: What was it like to work with Richard Ayoade on The Double? Submarine had such a very unique style. How would you describe this film and its visual style?
EISENBERG: They built an entire world for the movie. Every set was built. They basically built an entire city. It’s incredible! So, the style is so unique. It’s a funny movie, but it’s very dark and terrifying. This character that I play, his life is overtaken by his doppleganger, so he’s struggling for not only his identity, but his life. The style of it is so consistently dystopian that I think it will be just fantastic. It was really a weird world to inhabit, as an actor, and I imagine that, as an audience it will be as well because you won’t see the camera and it won’t take you out of it, like it did for me.
