Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Donald Glover will star in a brand new Amazon Prime Video collection primarily based on the 2005 movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith. The film starred Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt as a pair of married killers-for-hire who’re assigned to assassinate one another.
I’m attempting to examine what Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag character would make of this information and whether or not her Mrs. Smith will make the asides to the camera that Fleabag was recognized for (please do). And! This not the primary time the 2 stars have been in the identical manufacturing; each had been within the 2018 Disney film Solo: A Star Wars Story, he as a younger becaped Lando Calrissian and he or she as snarky droid L3-37.
Glover made the announcement by way of a narrative on his Childish Gambino Instagram web page, which was shared by Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke. She referred to as the pair a “dream workforce” for the studio in a press release.
Glover and Waller-Bridge will executive-produce Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Variety reported, and Francesca Sloane will function showrunner for the collection, which is due in 2022.
Waller-Bridge created and wrote for of the hit collection Killing Eve primarily based on the novels by Luke Jennings, and can also be a writer on the delayed James Bond film No Time to Die. Glover has gained raves for his FX collection Atlanta, which he created and co-starred in (its newest season has additionally been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic).
Each stars have finished different initiatives with Amazon Studios; it distributed Fleabag within the US, and Glover’s musical Guava Island was an Amazon Authentic manufacturing.
