Hollywood actors feared working in movie based on Saddam Hussein's son
Washington, July 30 (ANI): Hollywood actors were said to have been afraid to work on the movie 'The Devil's Double', which had been adapted from a tell-all book about Saddam Hussein's son, Uday Hussein.
The book was written by Latif Yahia, who was ripped from his family and forced to become the "bullet catcher" to Uday due to which he claims he was exposed to the behind-the-scenes corruption and abhorrent abuse.
"The story itself is incredible, I think a lot of actors and directors were tentatively scared of it when the script was first developed a few years ago, I know a lot of people decided not to take it on but I didn't fear that... I tried not to think about that too much, even now," Fox News quoted Dominic Cooper, who plays both Uday and Yahia as saying.
The forthcoming flick tells all about the notorious late dictator's son, his violence, his frequent indulgence in abduction, rape and murder of young women, before being killed by the US forces in 2003.
"I just couldn't believe the lack of humanity in the man. We know about dictators and we know what they are capable of but this man had no moral code and no grounding of what was right and what was wrong," Cooper said.
"I was just more and more repulsed by him and what he was put there to do to other human beings," he added. (ANI)
