Ang Lee Eyes Sci-Fi ‘GEMINI MAN’

Ang Lee is currently eyeing to direct Walt Disney Pictures sci-fi actioner GEMINI MAN. The story revolves around an over-the-hill hitman forced to do battle with a younger clone of himself.

Pitched by Darren Lemke in 1997, Gemini Man was originally planned to be directed by the late Tony Scott with Don Murphy producing. Then, it was later set to be directed by the late Curtis Hanson, and even Joe Carnahan. David Benioff, Brian Helgeland and Andrew Niccol have all been on the list as writers on the project. Mel Gibson at one point for eyeing to star. A few years ago, Carnahan even uploaded a pitch reel with Jerry Bruckheimer producing, and picturing Clint Eastwood leading.

As you can see the project has been having problems to get made. Rian Johnson’s Looper also dealt with similar plot lines. One of the reasons why Gemini Man has been quite hard to do is because a single actor is intended to play both roles, which means cutting-edge visual effects. After working on Life of Pi, which had heavy FX and pushing technological boundaries with HFR on Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, it seems maybe this project can be made by Lee.
