Curtis Hanson circling ‘Gemini Man’

David Benioff wrote Jerry Bruckheimer thriller

Curtis Hanson is negotiating with Disney to direct “Gemini Man,” an action thriller that will be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.

David Benioff wrote the most recent draft of the script.

An NSA agent tries to retire and is targeted for death. He discovers that his assassin is a younger cloned version of himself.

Mike Stenson and Chad Oman will be executive producers with Don Murphy.

The director best known for “Wonder Boys” and “L.A. Confidential” will be taking on his first cloning tale. He is also looking to end a development process that dates back nearly a decade. Darren Lemke originated the project, and drafts were subsequently penned by the likes of Jonathan Hensleigh.

Hanson is repped by UTA.
