Where was Gemini Man filmed? The City, the House & All the Filming Locations

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, Belgium, Colombia, Georgia, and New York. Here is our guide to the filming locations of the movie.

Liège train station
Most of Gemini Man was filmed where the action is set: The modern Liège-Guillemins railway station from the first scene was filmed on location in Belgium.

Stock Exchange Palace
The scene where Henry is talking to Marino (played by E. J. Bonilla) after the train sequence was filmed in a classic location of Budapest, the old Stock Exchange Palace (also known as the MTV building) in Liberty Square.

Many productions have used this vacant building in the last few years. The 2021 movie Outside the Wire, the Netflix show Shadow and Bone, the first season of the Hanna series, and the Las Vegas casino in Blade Runner 2049 were also filmed here.

Gemini Man house
The local newspaper The Island Packet reported that Will Smith was filming in Tybee Island near Savannah.

Henry's cabin was actually filmed at Buttermilk Sound near Brunswick.

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

Buttermilk Sound Marina
The Isle of Hope Marina in Savannah doubled as the Buttermilk Sound Marina where Henry meets Danny.

The Isle of Hope is nestled in the middle of a scenic Historic District, adjacent to the Wormsloe Plantation.

Enid A Haupt Conservatory in The Bronx
This scene with Clayton "Clay" Varris and Janet Lassiter, the director of the DIA (played by Linda Emond) was filmed outside the Victorian-style Enid A. Haupt Conservatory in The Bronx, NY.

Gemini Man in Cartagena
The colorful house in Cartagena, Colombia, was located in a seafront property on the Plaza Del Maestro Obregon in the historic center.

However, several street scenes were filmed in the also beautiful Getsemani neighborhood (Plaza Trinidad, Plaza del Pozo), located next to downtown.

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.

Pictured, the Clock Tower Monument located on Los Coches Square.

The motorbike chase scene continues in the walls and ramparts of the city, passing through the Caribbean Naval Museum building.

Heredia Theater
The scene pictured was shot in the small square where the beautiful Heredia Theater is located.

Built between 1906 and 1911, this edifice is part of Cartagena's architectural ensemble declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Wo wurde Gemini Man gedreht
Gemini Man was also filmed in several iconic monuments of Budapest.

After the short scene at the reading room of the library at Budapest University of Technology and Economics, the trio meets at the courtyard of this impressive complex, founded in 1782.

Széchenyi Thermal Bath
The next scene was filmed on Liberty Square, near the Parliament Building.

The baths featured in the movie are the famous Széchenyi Thermal Baths (pictured), built in 1913.

Unless you are renting the full place, it is almost impossible to see this Neo-Baroque style landmark as empty as it appears in the film.

Will Smith in Budapest
The Fisherman's Bastion overlooking the city from the Buda side of the Hungarian capital is always full of tourists with annoying selfie sticks. You have been warned.

Gemini Man drehort
Danny meets Junior at Vajdahunyad Castle in the City Park of Budapest, 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 awesome fortified churches of Transylvania, now in Romania.

The courtyard is the Jaki Chapel, which was also a featured location in The Witcher series, season one.

Kiscelli Museum
The taxi drives through Heroes' Square before arriving at the entrance of the catacombs, filmed at the Kiscelli Museum in Óbuda.

This 18th-century monastery was reconverted into the Municipal Picture Gallery of Budapest.

However, the interior of the underground boneyard was a set built at the studios.

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

The local bank building became Glennville High School, and as you can see, the Art-deco liquor store doesn't actually exist.

Brooklyn College New York
The last scene, six months later, was recorded at the Brooklyn College public university campus in Brooklyn, New York.

  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.
