After a long road through development, Gemini Man is now in production, and Will Smith is taking to social media to share a behind-the-scenes look at the first week of filming -- and all the bugs that go along with it.

Apparently, one of the movie's filming locations is somewhere in Georgia, but while the exact area is unknown, it looks like Smith and company are having a particularly tough time dealing with the swarms of mosquitoes and other bugs that want to get in on the action. Via his Instagram, Smith shared a brief video with fans from beneath a personal mosquito net, as well as a quick pic with similarly netted director Ang Lee:

Although Gemini Man had originally planned to start filming later this spring, the casting of Smith's co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead last month enabled the project to move up its schedule. The movie centers around Smith in the lead role as aging assassin Henry Brogan, who is suddenly targeted by a younger version of himself. Clive Owen, who had previously been reported to be in talks to star as the film's antagonist, is now confirmed as an addition to the cast, as well as Benedict Wong. Jerry Bruckheimer and David Ellison will produce.

Gemini Man is currently scheduled to open in theaters on Oct. 4, 2019, presumably with bugs digitally removed.

You'd think Smith would be used to bugs after Men in Black, right?
