Will Smith is back in the action-movie, Gemini Man… twice.
Ang Lee has joined forces with Jerry Bruckheimer and David Ellison’s Skydance, to redefine the possibilities of what people can experience on a big screen.
In GEMINI MAN, the person being chased is Henry, played by the 51-year-old Will Smith. The person chasing him? That would be Junior, played by a 23-year-old Will Smith. Not a ‘de-aged’ doppelganger but a whole new digital human, a virtual mirror-self who will not just interact with but fight with his older self.
“This is not de-ageing, this is not face replacement – Junior is a completely digital creation, 100% driven by Will Smith’s performance capture. Every tear he cries, every punch he throws, everything you see is all pure Smith.” says VFX supervisor Bill Westenhofer.
“What we’re doing here has never been done before,” says Will Smith. “When I saw the first test was a freaky experience. I mean, it was me. I was looking at the perfect 23-year-old version of myself, like somebody took all the flaws out. It was, like, ‘Damn!’ I mean, when you hear about it, it’s a cool-sounding idea, right? But when you see it, it’s cinematically astounding. When you see it, it gets inside of you. It’s like, ‘Oh, that’s what cloning is!’”
