Overriding __new__

Code isn't passing and I'm not sure why. Is it something to do with returning the instance?

class Double(int):
    def __new__(*args, **kwargs):
        return (int)

in the final line, you have to call the method on your int instance like so:

          return int.__new__(*args, **kwargs)
