Richard Gere and Topher Grace team up for spy thriller The Double

Here's an unlikely (but somewhat interesting) combo: Richard Gere (BROOKLYN'S FINEST) and Topher Grace (PREDATORS) will be teaming up for THE DOUBLE, a spy thriller from screenwriter Michael Brandt (THE A-TEAM, WANTED).

Brandt, making his directorial debut here, will be joined by his frequent writing partner Derek Haas (3:10 TO YUMA, 2 FAST 2 FURIOUS), both of whom, according to THR, are fans of films such as THE CONVERSATION, THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR, and NO WAY OUT. Following similar lines, Brandt and Hass's film "begins with a murder of a senator in Washington by a Soviet assassin long thought to be dead. A retired CIA operative (Gere), who spent his career going toe to toe with his Soviet nemeses, is forced to partner with a young FBI agent (Grace) to hunt the killer down."

Gere was last seen in the pretty okay BROOKLYN'S FINEST (where I felt he turned in one of the film's strongest performances), and in something I've never even heard of called HACHIKO: A DOG'S STORY, which is rocking a pretty high rating over at IMDb. Huh. He's got the animated film HENRY AND ME voicing the title character, and the Gary Marshall romance film STATE OF THE UNION opposite Annette Bening.

Grace, meanwhile, will be off doing battle/running the f*ck away from dreadlocked aliens in PREDATORS come this July. He also has YOUNG AMERICANS featuring good-lookers Anna Faris, Michelle Trachtenberg, and Teresa Palmer (and yay, Michael Biehn!).
Extra Tidbit: Grace used to tap Ivanka Trump and is currently nailing his YOUNG AMERICANS co-star Teresa Palmer? A collective fist bump for Topher, foiks.

The best thing about this is that Michael Biehn was mentioned.

There was a movie about 15 years ago supposed to be made by Roman Polanski and was to star John Travolta. Then JT left and it was supposed to be Steve Martin. It was also called THE DOUBLE. Is this the same movie?

It kind of reminds me of the Matarese books of Ludlum. Like if they took both books and kinda merged them. Interested to hear some more on this

Talk about an unusual duo...I like them both. Gere was awesome back in '85 as King David -Topher really helped make "Traffic" but he'll always be Eric Foreman(That 70's Show) to me. Might actually be a cool film?

I 2nd that!

I'm feeling this. Sounds like a great story with the always great Mr. Gere and very talented Grace, Spider-Man 3 aside that is.

like them both

but I will never be able to take Topher serious, he still looks too much like himself from the 70's show. They dont let scrawny/wimpy guys who look like there 17 and weighs 120lbs to be lead investigators of hitmen related murders. Why dont we get Kelso to be the hitman?

I don't care how horrible Topher Grace was in Spider-Man 3, I'm still a big fan of his and will definitely check this out. I am also a big fan of Richard Gere and am glad he is doing an action film after so long(havent seen Brooklyn's finest).

Topher Grace sucks

I hate to be so negative in here most the time, but I just can't help it, being that most of the news posted in here sucks.

So this bland asshat used to date some vapid barbie doll, and now he's dating her anorexic double, and he deserves a fist-bump? Why?? I honestly couldn't even talk to Ivanka for 10 minutes without stabbing myself in the ears. Your taste in women sucks, Topher & George.

BTW, Richard Gere is a one trick pony & a piece of eye-candy for the ladies, nothing more.

I'll pass on this.
