Posted by

Gemini Man is a science fiction thriller about a professional killer who is targeted by a younger clone of himself.

Thanks to digital effects, two characters are played by Will Smith: the 50-years-old Henry Brogan, and his 23-years-old counterpart, Junior aka the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, who is sent to kill him.

Where was Gemini Man filmed

Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen, and Benedict Wong co-star this blockbuster directed by Ang Lee (Life of Pi, Brokeback Mountain).

Gemini Man was filmed in Budapest, Colombia, and Georgia. Here is our guide to the filming locations of the movie.

Gemini Man City
If you've visited the most touristic city of Colombia, it won't be hard for you to recognize some of the splendid landmarks of Cartagena's colonial walled town, featured in the movie.

Gemini Man drehort
The Vajdahunyad Castle in the City Park of Budapest was built in 1896 to celebrate the Hungarian Conquest of the Carpathians in 895.

That's why the architecture of this complex looks so much like the original one from Transylvania (now in Romania).

Shot on location in Glennville Georgia
In the United States, the small town of Glennville in Georgia was transformed into a set to host the production.

The local bank building became Glennville High School.

Sequence in Tybee Island Savannah
Local newspaper The Island Packet reported that Will Smith was filming in Tybee Island near Savannah.

Some more locations in Georgia include Savannah's Wright Square, the marshes, Isle of Hope Marina, Pembroke, and Port Wentworth.

In the last years, the city hosted many productions thanks to its tax rebate scheme, including Lady and the Tramp and Council of Dads.

  5. This article is very misleading on the Vajdahunyad Castle! The original Castle is in "now Romania" as it was built in HUNGARY by HUNGARIANS. 70% of HUNGARY was taken away in 1920 big piece was attached to Romania. So that's NOT a Romanian Castle. You need to correct that mistake in your article! This is an insult to Hungarians.
