Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Donald Glover to star in Amazon’s Mr. and Mrs. Smith series

Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Donald Glover will star in a new Amazon Primary Online video collection based on the 2005 film Mr. and Mrs. Smith. The film starred Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt as a pair of married killers-for-hire who are assigned to assassinate just about every other.

I am hoping to imagine what Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag character would make of this news and whether or not her Mrs. Smith will make the asides to the digital camera that Fleabag was recognized for (please do). And! This not the to start with time the two stars have been in the exact same generation both equally had been in the 2018 Disney motion picture Solo: A Star Wars Story, he as a youthful becaped Lando Calrissian and she as snarky droid L3-37.

Glover made the announcement through a tale on his Childish Gambino Instagram website page, which was shared by Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke. She termed the pair a “dream team” for the studio in a statement.

Glover and Waller-Bridge will government-develop Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Wide range claimed, and Francesca Sloane will serve as showrunner for the sequence, which is because of in 2022.

Waller-Bridge created and wrote for of the hit sequence Killing Eve based mostly on the novels by Luke Jennings, and is also a writer on the delayed James Bond movie No Time to Die. Glover has won raves for his Forex sequence Atlanta, which he made and co-starred in (its most up-to-date season has also been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic).

The two stars have completed other tasks with Amazon Studios it distributed Fleabag in the US, and Glover’s musical Guava Island was an Amazon Primary creation.
