The Sex, Money & Sadism of 'The Devil's Double'


"Mamma Mia!" star Dominic Cooper gets serious in the incredible true story of an Iraqi army lieutenant hired to double for Saddam Hussein's son, and we have a look behind the scenes!

In limited release July 29, Cooper plays both men -- lieutenant Latif Yahia and the notorious "Black Prince" Uday Hussein -- in this white-knuckle story of money, power and opulent decadence in the violent, lawless Baghdad of 1987.

With his and his family's lives at stake, Latif Yahia is ordered to double for Hussein and must learn to walk, talk and act like him. One wrong move could cost him his life, and Yahia is shocked by Hussein's sadistic, drug-addled lifestyle of fast cars, easy sex and impulsive violence. With war looming, his family's lives and his own life at stake, Yahia begins to plot his impossible escape from the devil's den.

Based on Latif Yahia's chilling autobiographical novel, 'The Devil's Double' was directed by Lee Tamahori ('Die Another Day') and shot on location in Malta, doubling for Iraq.
