I’m soooo thrilled about this news and so happy for Mary!
Just last week it was reported that Mary was being considered for the front runner to play the female lead opposite Will Smith in Ang Lee’s Gemini Man. She was up against Tatiana Maslany and Elizabeth Debecki and now THR has confirmed that Mary landed the role!
In the film, Smith plays two opposing roles: one of Henry, an aging assassin who wants to get out of the business, and that of his ultimate opponent, a clone who is 25 years younger and at the peak of his abilities that has been tasked to kill him.Winstead will play an operative who has been ordered to surveil Smith. However, she soon teams up with him.
Filming will begin next month with Clive Own joining the cast as the villain.
