Gemini Man Behind-the-Scenes

"The concept of man being chased by himself – that's a really compelling idea for a story… Thanks to the technology, now it's possible." Paramount has released a behind-the-scenes featurette for Gemini Man, the next film from Ang Lee. The second trailer just dropped, so they're trying to keep us intrigued with this making of look at how they created a completely digital "younger" character for Will Smith to play off of. It touches upon the dual roles and how Smith shot this, but doesn't mention anything about HFR or shooting at 120FPS. This sci-fi action thriller is about an aging hitman who finds himself facing off against a younger clone of himself. The visual effects are being done by Weta Digital. The cast also includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen, Benedict Wong, Linda Emond, Ralph Brown, and Theodora Miranne. I don't think this is groundbreaking nor will it change cinema, as they say, but I still hope this turns out good.

Here's the behind-the-scenes featurette for Ang Lee's Gemini Man, direct from Paramount's YouTube:
