The big name fronting the film in a dual role is, of course, Will Smith. He might’ve played in everything from Aladdin to The Fresh Prince of Bel Air to Men in Black, but playing two parts in Gemini Man – assassin Henry Brogan, and young-Brogan – will present a new acting challenge for one of Hollywood’s most charismatic talents.
Clive Owen will be playing antagonist Clay Varris, Brogan’s corrupt ex-boss and the mastermind behind the clone coming to life, who’s now determined to determined to retire the older Brogan at all costs.
Joining Will and Clive in the star-studded cast will be Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane) as Danny Zakarweski, a hitwoman and ally of Henry’s, and Benedict Wong (Avengers: Infinity War) as Baron, one of Henry’s colleagues.
What is Gemini Man about?
The action-thriller film, directed by visionary Ang Lee (Life of Pi), will follow Henry Brogan, a world-class assassin, as he is targeted by a mysterious threat who is always one step ahead of him. This threat? A clone of himself.
Henry must fight against ‘Junior’ if he hopes to survive… but can he possibly beat his younger, faster self?
Originally devised in 1997, Gemini Man was stuck in development hell for for almost 20 years, during which time various big names, including Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Clint Eastwood, and Sean Connery, were being lined up for the lead role(s).
