The exact details behind the role are unknown other then that it will be an antagonist role, reported Variety.
Skydance came on to the project, which has been in development for two decades, last year.
The film follows an over-the-hill hitman who faces off against a younger clone of himself.
The makers are eyeing an October 4, 2019 release.
"Gemini Man" was first set up at Disney in 1997 as a pitch by Darren Lemke, with Murphy producing and Tony Scott directing. Curtis Hanson was also attached to direct at one point as well before Lee came on in the spring of 2017.
