Gemini Man lives

Wow -- here's the very definition of "Development Hell", a pending big-budget Hollywood project that has been around longer than most of the remaining movie sites on the internets (but not this one!).

But like a morning after all-you-can-eat Mexican, you never know what might resurface. Megaproducer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Curtis Hanson (LA CONFIDENTIAL, WONDER BOYS) skipped the fish tacos, but the sci-fi thriller GEMINI MAN has floated to the top of their production pile.

The Disney project involves a government agent on the verge of retirement, only to wind up in the sights of an assassin who is actually a young clone of himself. Top tier talent like Harrison Ford, Sean Connery and Mel Gibson supposedly once considered starring -- as both versions of themselves, with the younger version produced through some combination of older movie footage and digital de-aging.

Modern FX procedures should make the process easier (if not entierly convincing).

Writer David Benioff (THE 25th HOUR, X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE) took the last crack at the script.

Extra Tidbit: I can remember when this was first announced. Damn, I have been doing this a long time...

Well after seeing Benjamin Button and what modern filmmaking can do, this movie should look BA.

I remember when this was announced too. And I remember when Nic Cage was attached to it and all I could picture was H.I. McDunnough trying to kill Castor Troy.

Maybe they should hire a bald actor for the older part and then have the young actor shave his head. It worked for Star Trek Nemesi.......Oh wait.....Nevermind

My choices would be either Robert Downey Jr, Christian "I'm Gonna Kick Your Fucking Ass" Bale, or John Cusack. I mean Cusack has already played an assassin/hitman two times already in his career (i.e. Grosse Point Blank and War Inc.) Why not a third.
