With Will Smith on board to headline Ang Lee’s upcoming sci-fi actioner Gemini Man, now comes word that Mary Elizabeth Winstead has joined the picture.
As per Heat Vision, the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Fargo and 10 Cloverfield Lane actress will be playing the female lead of the film; a role that sees the actress playing an operative who works for the same agency as Smith’s character. Initially, Winstead’s character will be tasked with tracking down Smith before ultimately teaming with him. Also signed on for Gemini Man is Clive Owen, who’ll be playing the ‘big bad’ of the piece.
In terms of story, the David Benioff-penned tale will see Smith as an aging NSA agent who just simply wants to retire. Unfortunately for him, he’s got a younger cloned version of himself out to kill him. Smith will be pulling double duty here, playing both the older and younger takes on his character.
At present, Gemini Man is set for an October 4th, 2019 release.
