Preview: Will Smith vs. Will Smith in “Gemini Man”


He’s made a film of “Omega Man,” a remake of the last Man on Earth thriller which, in his version, went back to the original title — “I Am Legend.”

So why not “Gemini Man?”

This is a hitman battling his younger clone.

So naturally, it was directed by the great Ang Lee. Yeah, I muttered “WTF?” too when I first heard “Gemini Man” was in the works.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Clive Owen star in this Oct. 11 film from the director of “Crouching Tiger” and “Brokeback Mountain.”

Hope the movie is better looking (obvious digital fakery, and not just the younger, fresher Fresh Prince) than the trailer.

With Smith on board a “Bad Boys” reboot with lumpy, long-in-the-tooth Martin Lawrence (so it would seem), we’re looking at a lot more Will in the coming year.
