Mary Elizabeth Winstead has landed the female lead opposite Will Smith in Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media's "Gemini Man".
The Ang Lee-directed project has been in development for the past 20 years. Smith stars as an aging assassin fighting his own clone who is 25 years younger than him and at the peak of his abilities. Winstead will play an operative who has been ordered to surveil Smith. Clive Owen is in talks to play the film’s villain.
"Gemini Man" was first set up at Disney in 1997 as a pitch by Darren Lemke, with Murphy producing and Tony Scott directing. Curtis Hanson was also attached to direct at one point as well before Lee came on in the spring of 2017.
