    Curtis Hanson's sign: 'Gemini'

    Director in negotiations to helm Touchstone's action thriller

    The stars may finally be aligning for "Gemini Man."

    "L.A. Confidential" director Curtis Hanson is in negotiations to helm the long-gestating action thriller taking shape at Touchstone Pictures.

    David Benioff ("The Kite Runner") wrote the script, about a brilliant, aging assassin trying to leave the game whose employers dispatch a clone of his younger self to take him out. The concept allows for some techno-wizardry whereby an older actor with a long career would be cast, and his younger likeness would be digitally grafted onto a stuntman's body. A similar trick was employed with Jet Li in "The One," though not with the generational twist.

    Jerry Bruckheimer is producing. Bruckheimer execs Mike Stenson and Chad Oman will executive produce along with Angry Films' Don Murphy, who set the project up originally in 1997 off an original pitch from Darren Lemke.

    Several writers worked on the script over the years, including Jonathan Hensleigh, who collaborated with Bruckheimer on "Con Air," "Armageddon" and "Gone in Sixty Seconds."
