Donald Glover and Phoebe Waller-Bridge are starring in a new take on “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” for Amazon Studios.
Not much is know about the project except that it will be TV series that will feature the two, who co-created the series along with “Atlanta” writer/producer Francesca Sloane, who will serve as showrunner. Amazon Studios is producing with New Regency, the studio behind the 2005 film that starred Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
The news was announced first by Glover and Amazon studios chief Jennifer Salke on social media Friday. In a later press release, Salke said: “Talk about the dream team! Donald and Phoebe are two of the most talented creators and performers in the world. It’s truly a dream for us, as it will be for our global audience, to have these two forces of nature collaborating as a powerhouse creative team.
‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith’ is an iconic property, and we can’t wait to see how Donald, Phoebe and Francesca make it their own. We’re thrilled to be working with them, and with such great partners at New Regency.”
It expected to hit Amazon Prime Video in February of 2022.
