Gemini Man follows the story of an older, elite assassin named Henry Brogan (Will Smith) who is trying to retire. In the film, he’s suddenly targeted and pursued by a mysterious young operative that seemingly can predict his every move. Directed by Ang Lee, Gemini Man is produced by renowned producers Jerry Bruckheimer and David Ellison along with Smith, James Lassiter, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger.
The film stars Will Smith (I Am Legend) in dual roles; Clive Owen (Closer, Children of Men) who is the lead villain/ the head of a cloning program; Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Birds of Prey) as an operative working for the same agency as Smith’s character; and Benedict Wong (MCU, Deadly Class).

The rights to Gemini Man were acquired by Skydance after having been in development for two decades. Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Amazing Race) is producing with Don Murphy set to serve as executive producer.
Gemini Man was originally set at Walt Disney Pictures in 1997 from a Darren Lemki pitch, but the film wasn’t able to be made as the VFX were not yet ready to use the same actor for both roles. There were a number of versions of the script from Brian Helgeland and Andrew Niccol and, at one point, the late Tony Scott was in the running to direct.
The sci-fi action film is scheduled to hit theaters on October 11.
