I think I'll skip this one.

According to Vulture, Jesse Eisenberg is set to star in director Richard Ayoade’s adaptation of Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s novella The Double, which they describe as "Fight Club for bureaucrats". That actually makes it sound kind of awesome, but a word of warning: Wikipedia says that D.S. Mirsky (a fellow Russian, mind you, who I'm assume was inured to the gloom of Russian literature) described it as "painful, almost intolerable reading".
