The action comedy “Mr. And Mrs. Smith ”with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie gets a series reboot for Amazon Prime Video. The series was conceived by Donald Glover and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who will also play the leading roles.
In 1941 Alfred Hitchcock told in his comedy “Mr. and Mrs. Smith ”by a married couple (played by Carole Lombard and Robert Montgomery) whose relationship falls into turmoil when they learn that they have never actually been married because of some formality.
The concept of this film came from writer Simon Kinberg (“X-Men” series) and director Doug Liman (“The Bourne Identity”) in “Mr. & Mrs. Smith ”on the head, in which Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie could be seen as married couples who each keep a double life as contract killer secret from each other – with correspondingly explosive consequences when this secret finally comes to light.

In a new Amazon series, the concept of the film from 2005 is now to be turned on its head again. The creative minds behind and at the same time the familiar faces in front of the camera at the “Mr. & Mrs. Smith ”series are Donald Glover and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who are currently among the greatest comedy talents in Hollywood.
Both worked together on “Solo: A Star Wars Story”, where they could be seen as Lando Calrissian and L3-37 respectively. They made a name for themselves before, however: Glover starred in the brilliant sitcom “Community” and was awarded a Golden Globe for his role in “Atlanta”; the series is often considered one of the best comedy series of all time and will soon be shown in Germany on Star on Disney +.

For the “Mr. & Mrs. Smith ”series, Glover and Waller-Bridge will team up with Francesca Sloane (“ Fargo ”), who also wears her hat as the showrunner. Details of the content of the series have not yet been revealed, but it can be assumed that it will be more in the direction of comedy than the 2005 film.
An exact start date for “Mr. & Mrs. Smith “does not yet exist, but Amazon has already revealed that the series should start in 2022.
