Written and directed by the Pflugerville-raised Riley Stearns, the deadpan sci-fi comedy Dual finds Karen Gillan’s terminally ill everywoman cloning herself so her double can inherit her life immediately upon her death. When Sarah’s circumstances change, her double refuses to accept her decommission and legally challenges Sarah to a dual to the death to determine which one of them will live out the rest of Sarah’s life. Aaron Paul costars as Trent, Sarah’s personal combat trainer. Dual opens April 15 at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar. Riley Stearns previously wrote and directed 2014’s Faults and 2019’s The Art of Self-Defense.
