LOS ANGELES — Paramount Pictures’ innovative action-thriller Gemini Man, starring Will Smith, is not only the latest film by Academy Award®-winning Taiwanese American director Ang Lee but also an unprecedented showcase for Asian and Asian American talent both in front of and behind the camera. On screen, Benedict Wong (Dr. Strange, Avengers: Endgame), one of Hollywood’s most high-profile Asian actors, co-stars alongside Smith, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Clive Owen.
