Ang Lee in talks to helm clone assassin film ‘Gemini Man’

LOS ANGELES, Apr 23:  Filmmaker Ang Lee is in negotiations to direct clone assassin movie “Gemini Man”.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story of the high-concept action thriller centers on an ageing assassin who tried to get out of the business but finds himself in the ultimate battle: fighting his own clone who is 25 years younger than him 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. The makers wanted to use computer effects to have the same actor play both parts but the technology to have one actor realistically carry that off for an entire movie did not exist.
Curtis Hanson was also attached to direct at one point while Mel Gibson was supposed to star at another.
Skydance picked up the dormant project in October 2016 and Jerry Bruckheimer is now producing it. (PTI)
