We are finally seeing the first trailer for a film that has been in the works for over 20 years.
Will Smith plays a 50-year-old version of himself and a 23-year-old version of himself in the upcoming action-thriller, Gemini Man.
Smith plays Henry Brogan, an elite assassin looking to get out of the game, who is suddenly targeted and pursued by a mysterious young operative that seemingly can predict his every move. If you’ve watched the trailer, you’ll already know why – this new hitman is a clone of Brogan, 25 years his junior.
Ang Lee is the filmmaker behind this project. His name might sound familiar to you as he’s responsible for directing Brokeback Mountain and Life of Pi.
While teasing footage of the movie at CinemaCon, Lee told the crowd, “If you’re a director and you get to work with Will Smith, you should consider yourself lucky — and thanks to new technology, I get two.”
And we as an audience get two as well! Check out the first trailer for Gemini Man below. It’s scheduled to hit theaters October 11, 2019.
