Denis Villeneuve explores Enemy in new featurette

Pathé have just released their first featurette for duplicity drama Enemy, which looks into Denis Villeneuve's reunion with Prisoners (2013) actor Jake Gyllenhaal.

Gyllenhaal plays a strung-out professor called Adam Bell, who encounters an identical man named Anthony St. Claire (also Gyllenhaal) bearing a sinister threat. Mélanie Laurent (Beginners), Isabella Rossellini (Infamous) and Sarah Gadon (A Dangerous Method) join him in his hellish struggle for survival in academe.

Aiming to be a notch above your average press kit gushing, this featurette explores the themes of the film, charting Adam's struggles with his inner demons and demonstrates how they went about making sure the shots featuring both Gyllenhaals lined up.

The film is loosely adapted from the book The Double by José Saramago, the Portuguese author behind Blindness (2008), and promises a dramatic thriller with a metaphysical flavour. American audiences will see it on 14 March and while there is no date set yet, we should get Enemy in the first half of this year.
