Will Smith is on mission to assassinate himself in Ang Lee’s Gemini Man.
“Tell me something,” Clive Owen’s character asks Smith. “Why is it so hard for you to kill this man?”
“He knew every move of mine before I made it,” Smith’s character says before learning the identity of his target. “I’d have him right there, I’d take the shot, and he would be gone — like a ghost. Who is he?”
The actor pulls off double duty, playing both the 50-year-old and 23-year-old version of himself in “Gemini Man,” thanks to stunning technology
Smith plays the dual roles of Henry, an aging assassin, and his younger clone who is sent to kill him. Owen is set to play the head of the cloning program that creates Henry’s 25-years-younger clone, while Winstead is Danny, the operative assigned to surveil Henry who later teams up with him against their malicious employer.
Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, the Paramount Pictures and Skydance film also stars Benedict Wong.
Gemini Man opens in theaters on October 4, 2019.
