In unexpected, but very intriguing news the 2005 film Mr. and Mrs. Smith starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie is being reimagined as a TV series with Donald Glover and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
This new iteration is scheduled for a 2022 release on Amazon Prime Video with both Glover and Waller-Bridge serving as executive producers and Francesca Sloane in the showrunner spot. This would not be the first time the pair have worked together, after previously starring in Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Both Donald Glover and Phoebe Waller-Bridge have achieved major success with their own shows in Atlanta and Fleabag respectfully. The two joining forces, albeit on a project no one saw coming is certainly exciting. I imagine the series will offer up a more comedic take than the movie, but the two stars may have wanted to flex their action chops in different roles than they usually play. Whatever the case, I look forward to seeing how the project further develops.
