Isabelle Adjani is in talks to star opposite John Travolta in Mandalay Entertainment’s “The Double” for Roman Polanski, sources said. The actress recently wrapped Morgan Creek’s remake of “Diabolique” opposite Sharon Stone.
“The Double” is about an American living in Paris who believes a double has assumed his identity. Travolta will play both roles. Ultimately, the man’s alter ego teaches him the errors of his ways and shows him the value of his future life. The project is expected to go before the cameras in May or June.
The pic is based on an original screenplay by Jeremy Leven (“Don Juan De Marco”), who will serve as executive producer along with Jonathan Krane and Mandalay’s Todd Black.
