How’s this for a collaboration: Donald Glover and Phoebe Waller-Bridge are uniting for an Amazon series, Mr.& Mrs. Smith. The Atlanta star teased the series, coming to Amazon in 2022, on his Instagram story Friday (Feb. 12).
The project, a reboot of the 2005 New Regency film starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, has quietly been in the works for months and stems from the Fleabag creator’s overall deal with Amazon.Waller-Bridge and Glover will create and star in the series. Francesca Sloane (Atlanta, Fargo) — who is also under an overall deal with Amazon — is also attached as a co-creator and will serve as showrunner. New Regency’s Yariv Milchan and Michael Schaefer will also exec produce, as will Jenny Robins of Wells Street Films.
