Will Smith fights himself in Ang Lee’s dopey but thrilling Gemini Man

Will Smith fights himself in Ang Lee’s dopey but thrilling Gemini Man

Ang Lee’s sci-fi action movie Gemini Man, which stars Will Smith as a government assassin who discovers that he was cloned by his former superiors, brims with the kind of possibilities of which transcendent pulp stories are made: an exclusive world of cold-blooded pros; a cavalier attitude toward both science and bodily harm; an air of weariness and regret; a hero who is fast and deadly with a...

Ang Lee and Will Smith dive into hyperreality in the latest Gemini Man trailer

Ang Lee and Will Smith dive into hyperreality in the latest Gemini Man trailer

As a project, Gemini Man has been talked about for decades. What if, creator Darren Lemke argued in the late ‘90s, an actor could fight a younger version of himself on-screen, and do it in a way that didn’t look like total shit? 20-odd years later, the technology has finally advanced enough that Ang Lee has decided to tackle the question, alongside a starring and slug-happy Will...

It's Will Smith vs. de-aged Will Smith in Ang Lee's Gemini Man

Ang Lee shot his last film, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk , in 3D at 120 frames per second of 4K resolution, and he’s done so again with his follow-up, an eye-popping action extravaganza that one could argue better suits the technology than the somber story of an Iraq War veteran. Gemini Man stars Will Smith as an aging assassin in combat with another, younger assassin also played...

Ang Lee’s next movie might be a spy thriller from Game Of Thrones’ David Benioff

Ang Lee’s next movie might be a spy thriller from Game Of Thrones’ David Benioff

Variety reports that Ang Lee might have lined up his next project, with the celebrated visual artist circling a script for an early project from Game Of Thrones co-showrunner David Benioff, titled Gemini Man.

Rather than the story of one of the trippier bosses from Mega Man 3, though, the script is a spy thriller, centered on an older assassin who discovers that his bosses have sent a younger...
