By Creative Media TimesParamount Pictures has released the first trailer to Ang Lee’s science fiction film “Gemini Man,” giving audiences a first look at a de-aged Will Smith.
Smith as plays Henry Brogen, an aging assassin and concerned father, as well as his younger assassin clone of himself.
“Twenty-five years ago, they made you from me! They chose me because there’s never been anybody like me. We have to end this right now!,” Smith says to his clone.
Originally based on a concept by Darren Lemke, the film has a long production history for more than 20 years. Various actors were once attached to star including Harrison Ford, Chris O’Donnell, Clint Eastwood and Mel Gibson among others.
Director Ang Lee shot the film in 3D at 120 frames-per-second and 4K resolution which he similarly employed in his previous film, “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.”
Gemini Man is currently in post-production with visual effects provided by Weta Digital. The film also stars Clive Owen, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Benedict Wong, Linda Emond and Theodora Miranne.
The film is set for release on October 11, 2019 by Paramount Pictures.
