‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith Set For TV Adaptation at Amazon Prime Video

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.
