Ang Lee, well known for his movies like LIFE OF PI and CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN TIGER, has set foot on a new journey with GEMINI MAN starring Will Smith as the main lead along with Benedict Wong.
Will Smith who was last seen in the movie ALADDIN as the Genie, would be seen in this action thriller GEMINI MAN in a double role. Recently Paramount released the trailer of the new film titled GEMINI MAN. The interesting part about the film is that this would the first time that we would see him in double roles – as an antagonist & Protagonist both played by him.
The recent post by Paramount Pictures read, “Who will save you from yourself? From visionary director Ang Lee and Academy Award nominee Will Smith comes @GeminiManMovie. Watch the official #GeminiMan trailer now. In theatres 10.11.19.”
While Will Smith’s post read, “First Trailer for #GeminiMan! October 11th, I’m gonna kick my own ass”. As per reports Henry Brogen played by Will Smith is an aging hitman who is targeted by a younger clone of himself. Henry Brogen, an aging assassin seeking to exit his career, finds himself going against a younger clone of himself who can predict his every move.
The film originally conceived about 2 decades back, went through the development process for all these years. Several popular directors were attached at some point and numerous top-ranking actors were set to star. And finally, in October 2017, Ang Lee signed on to direct. Watching such a movie would be interesting for various reasons including the development and that Will Smith will fight Will Smith.
In 2016, Skydance Media purchased the rights to the screenplay (which had been through several rewrites) from Walt Disney Pictures. GEMINI MAN is scheduled for October 11, 2019, by Paramount Pictures in the US.
