Donald Glover & Phoebe Waller-Bridge To Star In ‘Mr & Mrs Smith’ TV Adaptation

Donald Glover and Phoebe Waller-Bridge are set to star in a forthcoming TV adaptation of Mr & Mrs Smith.

Landing on Amazon Prime in 2022, the new series will see the pair assume the roles Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie took back in the 2005 film.

Glover and Waller-Bridge will also take on the positions of executive producers on the series.

Also joining the crew will be Francesca Sloane as showrunner. She’s worked with Donald Glover previously on his show Atlanta.

If you never got round to watching it, the movie is basically about a bored married couple who both work as assassins behind each other’s backs.

In a statement, Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios, 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 won’t be Donald Glover’s first time working with Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The pair previously worked together in 2018’s Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Glover and Waller-Bridge played Lando Calrissian and droid, L3-37 respectively.
