Directed by Academy Award winner Ang Lee (Life of Pi, Brokeback Mountain), Gemini Man stars Will Smith (Suicide Squad) as an elite assassin, who is suddenly targeted and pursued by a mysterious young operative who seemingly can predict his every move. The film, written by David Benioff and Billy Ray, also stars Clive Owen (Children of Men), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane), and Benedict Wong (Avengers: Infinity War).
Skydance developed the project alongside Jerry Bruckheimer, who will serve as a producer with David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger. Chad Oman, Mike Stenson, Guo Guangchang, Brian Bell and Don Murphy will executive produce.
“We’re very excited with the opportunity to work with Ang Lee. He is such a great director with a worldwide reputation and Gemini is a one-of-a-kind character-driven action movie we’ve never seen before,” said Li Haifeng, Chairman of Fosun Pictures and Senior Vice President of Fosun International. “We’re also impressed by the teams of Skydance and Paramount Pictures. Both are very energetic and innovative. We are thrilled to work with them.”
“We are very happy to partner with Fosun on Gemini Man,” said Jesse Sisgold, Skydance Media President & COO. “We believe the film will greatly benefit from Fosun’s massive footprint in China, as well as its connection to audiences worldwide via its myriad of brands.”
Gemini Man is set to release in the U.S. on October 11, 2019.
