What happens when you pair up two of Hollywood's most respected young stars?

We're all about to find out, because word around Tinseltown is that Mia Wasikowska and Jesse Eisenberg have signed on to play hefty roles in the upcoming drama, "The Double."

Inspired by Fyodor Dostoyevsky's classic novella (one of the ones you were supposed to read in school, but didn't), the story follows an insignificant man who is driven to the brink of a breakdown by the appearance of his doppelganger.

No word yet on what parts Wasikowska and Eisenberg will play specifically, but we're pretty sure director Richard Ayoade has big plans for these two.

According to Deadline, Ayoade co-wrote the script with Avi Korine. If it's anything like his sleeper hit, "Submarine," which became one of the most talked about dramedies of 2011, Wasikowska and Eisenberg are in for a treat.

Shooting is slated to start as soon as this spring in the United Kingdom, which means it shan't be too long before we get to see this pair together on the silver screen — which is sure to double our viewing pleasure for audiences everywhere.
