Clive Owen, Will Smith To Star in Ang Lee’s GEMINI MAN

In an interesting collaborative move, Clive Owen and Will Smith have agreed to star in And Lee’s upcoming sci-fi hitman movie, Gemini Man.

While that title probably makes one think of an old Steven Seagal mid-90s rap-infused action flick, or the 70s TV show of the same name about an invisible dude, this Gemini Man sounds like something original. According to the Variety report, “[T]he film follows an over-the-hill hitman who faces off against a younger clone of himself.”

This project has been around for twenty or so years, with Tony Scott once attached to direct. Jerry Bruckheimer is producing, and now Clive Owen and Will Smith are set to star, with the former playing “an antagonist role.” Hopefully this turns into something interesting.

Ang Lee has been hit or miss his entire career, as has Will Smith the past decade. But this news is especially exciting for Clive Owen fans (present!), who has mysteriously disappeared into thankless supporting parts when he should be making serious movies and chewing on meaty roles. Gemini Man at least has a shot.

We’ll see when the film arrives October 4… 2019…
