Gemini Man: Paramount’s sci-fi film to use high frame rate technology

According to The Playlist, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ang Lee (Crouching Tiger, Life of Pi) will be utilizing a HFR (High Frame Rate) technology for his upcoming sci-fi thriller film Gemini Man in order to improve and take the audience’s movie experience to a higher level with 120 frames-per-second presentations.

In preparation for the film’s release, Paramount Pictures has sent a letter to certain theater exhibitors with instructions on how to test their theater’s capabilities to handle the HFR technology. Lee previously used HFR in his most recent film Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk starring Joe Alwyn and Kristen Stewart, making it the first ever feature to use an extra-high frame rate of 120 frames per second.

Gemini Man follows the story of an older NSA agent named Henry (Smith) who is trying to retire. He’s marked for death and learns that the man out to kill him is a younger cloned version of himself. It is directed by Ang Lee and produced by renowned producers Jerry Bruckheimer and David Ellison along with Smith, James Lassiter, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger.

The film stars Will Smith (I Am Legend) in dual roles; Clive Owen (CloserChildren of Men) who is the lead villain/ the head of a cloning program; Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Birds of Prey) as an operative working for the same agency as Smith’s character; and Benedict Wong (MCU, Deadly Class)

The rights to Gemini Man were acquired by Skydance after having been in development for two decades. Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the CaribbeanThe Amazing Race) is producing with Don Murphy set to serve as executive producer.

Gemini Man was originally set at Walt Disney Pictures in 1997 from a Darren Lemki pitch, but the film wasn’t able to be made as the VFX were not yet ready to use the same actor for both roles. There were a number of versions of the script from Brian Helgeland and Andrew Niccol and, at one point, the late Tony Scott was in the running to direct.

The film will hit theaters on October 4.
