Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Donald Glover will be the new ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith ‘ in a Serie from Amazon that will be based on the film of the same title that starred Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in 2005.
“Donald and Phoebe are two of the most talented creators and performers in the world. It is truly a dream for us, as it will be for audiences around the world, to have these two forces collaborating on the team,” announced this Friday the Amazon’s video platform in a statement.
‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith ‘, the film after which Pitt and Jolie began their romantic relationship, was a worldwide blockbuster which raised more than 450 million dollars.
The film recounted the adventures of a married couple of hit men who work for rival agencies and are commissioned to kill each other, rekindling their bleak relationship.
The original cast included Adam Brody, Kerry Washington, Vince Vaugn, Keith David, Chris Weitz and Michelle Monaghan.
The new series will start from this story and, taking into account the history of the new protagonists, will enhance the comic part.
Glover and Waller-Bridge showed their chemistry before the cameras in ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’, the film of the galactic saga released in 2018
Both have recently won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead In Comedy, he for ‘Atlanta’ and she for the irreverent ‘Fleabag’.
