Glover Waller Bridge Team On Smith

Amazon has announced a TV series adaptation of Doug Liman’s 2005 action feature “Mr.& Mrs. Smith” and has picked one hell of a pair to lead it.

“Atlanta” star/creator, “Community” actor and rapper Donald Glover will team with “Fleabag” star/creator, “Killing Eve” creator, writer and “Solo” actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge in the lead roles which Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie played in the original.

Waller-Bridge and Glover will create and star in the series while Francesca Sloane (“Atlanta,” “Fargo”) is attached as a co-creator and will serve as showrunner. New Regency, which produced the original, is also onboard.

The series, which has quietly been in the works for months, stems from Waller-Bridge’s overall deal at Amazon and will air in 2022. Jenny Robins, Yariv Milchan and Michael Schaefer also executive produce.

The original Mr. & Mrs. Smith grossed $487 million worldwide when it was released in 2005. Key to doing reboots is having the original producers involved, which is the case here with New Regency.
