Image Entertainment has released the first images from The Double.  The flick centers on a former CIA operative (Richard Gere) who’s called out of retirement and must team up with a rookie FBI agent (Topher Grace) when a US senator turns up dead and bearing the distinctive trademark of a Russian assassin known as “Cassius”.  I’m always up for a good spy thriller and I tend to think Grace is fantastic in everything.  The film also stars Martin Sheen, Stephen Moyer, Odette Yustman, and Stana Katic.

Hit the jump to check out the images along with the official synopsis.  The Double opens September 23rd.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Double:

In THE DOUBLE, the mysterious murder of a US senator bearing the distinctive trademark of the legendary Soviet assassin “Cassius,” forces Paul Shepherdson (Richard Gere), a retired CIA operative, to team with rookie FBI agent, Ben Geary (Topher Grace), to solve the crime.

Having spent his career chasing Cassius, Shepherdson is convinced his nemesis is long dead, but is pushed to take on the case by his former supervisor, Tom Highland (Martin Sheen).  Meanwhile, Agent Geary, who wrote his Master’s thesis on Shepherdson’s pursuit of the Soviet killer, is certain that Cassius has resurfaced.  As Shepherdson and Geary work their way through crimes both past and present, they discover that Cassius may not be the person they always thought him to be, forcing both to re-examine everything and everyone around them.

A taut espionage thriller, THE DOUBLE stars Richard Gere, Topher Grace, Martin Sheen, Stephen Moyer, Odette Yustman, and Stana Katic.  Written by Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, the team behind “Wanted” and “3:10 To Yuma,” the film also represents Brandt’s directorial debut.
