The Double (2011)

Political thriller, from the writers of Wanted and 3:10 to Yuma, about the return of never-caught Soviet assassin. Stars Richard Gere, Martin Sheen, Topher Grace (That '70s Show) and Odette Annable (Cloverfield).

The mysterious murder of a US senator bearing the distinctive trademark of the legendary Soviet assassin 'Cassius', forces Paul (Gere), a retired CIA operative, to team with rookie FBI agent, Ben (Grace), to solve the crime. Having spent his career chasing Cassius, Paul is convinced his nemesis is long dead, but is pushed to take on the case by his former supervisor (Sheen). Ben, who wrote his Master's thesis on Shepherdson's pursuit of the Soviet killer, is certain that Cassius has resurfaced. As they 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.
