Young At Heart: Behind The Scenes Of Will Smith’s GEMINI MAN

Movies In Focus has been thrilled at the prospect of Gemini Man since I first heard about the concept around 20 years ago. At that time it was being pitched as a movie for an ageing action icon like Sean Connery or Harrison Ford. Fast-forward two decades and it’s Will Smith now playing a middle-aged assassin who must fight his younger self. 

This short but sweet behind-the-scenes featurette offers-up a hint of  how they digitally de-aged Smith for this And Lee directed, Jerry Bruckheimer produced action pic.

It looks touch CGI heavy for my tastes, but I’m fully aware that Bruckheimer produced Smith’s best movie – Enemy Of The State

The synopsis:

Gemini Man is an innovative action-thriller starring Will Smith as Henry Brogan, an elite assassin, who is suddenly targeted and pursued by a mysterious young operative that seemingly can predict his every move.  The film is directed by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Ang Lee and produced by renown producers Jerry Bruckheimer, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger.  Also starring are Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen and Benedict Wong.
