Will Smith In Talks To Join 'Gemini Man'

According to THR Will Smith is in negotiations to star in Gemini Man, Skydance’s high-concept action thriller based on one of Hollywood’s long-unproduced scripts.

Ang Lee is in negotiations to direct the project, which is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.

The story centers on an aging assassin who finds himself in a battle with the ultimate opponent: his clone, who is 25 years younger and at the peak of his abilities.

The project was first set up at Disney in 1997 as a pitch by Darren Lemke, with Don Murphy producing and Tony Scott directing. While always popular with execs, in and outside the studio, Gemini was considered unfilmable for many years because visual effects technology had not caught up to the concept. (Originally the idea was to have an actor such as Harrison Ford play the older assassin and someone like Chris O’Donnell play the younger version, before settling on the idea of one actor playing both parts.) The script has been retooled many times over the ensuing two decades, and numerous camera tests have been conducted by the studio, which at different times has considered Mel Gibson and Clint Eastwood for the lead role.

Skydance picked up the project in October, with Bruckheimer on board and Murphy executive producing, in the belief that the technology now exists to have someone like Smith realistically play two different ages and spar with himself.

Smith’s deal is not done, with things like scheduling (the actor is in early talks to play the Genie in Disney’s live-action Aladdin project) among the topics that still need to be hashed out.

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.
