Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media have set the upcoming science fiction actioner GEMINI MAN for October 4, 2019. Directed by Ang Lee and starring Will Smith in dual roles, the film is written by David Benioff and tells the story of an older NSA agent who is trying to retire. He’s marked for death and learns that the mean out to kill him is a younger cloned version of himself.

The rights to the film were acquired by Skydance after having the project in development for years. Jerry Brucheimer produces with Don Murphy executive producing.

Originally Gemini Man was set at Walt Disney Pictures in 1997 from a Darren Lemki pitch, but wasn’t able to get made as VFX were not ready to use the same actor for both roles. A number of versions of the script were also made from Brian Helgeland and Andrew Niccol, and at one point had the late Tony Scott to direct.
