Curtis Hanson tracks down Gemini Man

Hitman gets hunted by… Himself?

Curtis Hanson is about to take his first crack at the sc-fi action genre – and he has Disney’s Gemini Man in his sights.

Jerry Bruckheimer’s producing the tale of an NSA agent who attempts to retire but discovers that he’s been marked for death.

And the twist? The assassin hunting him is a cloned, younger version of himself. With that pitch, it sounds either like a cool, topical thriller or the worst kind of high concept nonsense which dredges up memories of The 6th Day.
