Once again, our favorite Instagram dad, Will Smith, is coming to the big screen!
In the upcoming film Gemini Man, Smith plays the role of a a 23-year-old man. The CGI technology used in Marvel films like Captain American, will allow the Fresh Prince of Bel Air actor to represent a younger version of himself.
“I’m 50 years old now, and the irony of becoming 23-year-old Junior in this film is that 23-year-old me wouldn’t have been ready for this experience or to take on this role,” said Smith.
Although this role will go down as one of the most emotionally and physically demanding films of his career, we can’t deny the fact that there’s always a message behind every Will Smith project. While watching Gemini Man, he wants viewers to understand that this is more than just another action movie, it’s an “exploration of what one’s younger self can ultimately teach one’s older self.”
Although the movie is called Gemini Man, it won’t be out until Libra season on October 11th.
