The real life exploits of Uday Hussein were chronicled by his body double Latif Yahia, in his novel The Devil's Double. Now, this autobiography is to be turned into a film, which will release in theatres July 29th. The first trailer for The Devil's Double is here and actor Dominic Cooper plays two roles: Uday Hussein and his body double, Latif Yahia. Have a look at the clip below, as Uday shows the power associated with unlimited wealth, with little restraint and without conscience.

The synopsis for The Devil's Double is here:

"Bagdad, the playground for the rich and infamous, where anything can be bought, but for a price. This is Uday Hussein’s world and with his depraved lust for debauchery and immorality, he helps himself to whatever turns him on.

When army lieutenant Latif Yahia, is summoned to Saddam’s palace, he is faced with an impossible request - to be Uday’s - fiday, his body double, or have his family condemned to death.

In a world entrenched in betrayal and corruption knowing who to trust becomes a matter of life or death for Latif, as he battles to escape from his forced existence" (Devil's Double).
