If you’re a fan of the iconic Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt movie, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, then you’re in for a treat. Donald Glover and Phoebe Waller-Bridge are attached to a new TV version of the action-comedy, which is set to hit our screens in 2022.
Here’s everything you need to know about Donald Glover and Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
The pair announced their version of Mr. & Mrs. Smith on Instagram.
Sharing some sultry, and some not-so-sultry, dancing, Glover and Waller-Bridge revealed their collaboration on Instagram, making it clear that their version of the classic story will have more than a hint of comedy in it.
As well as starring in the production, Glover and Waller-Bridge are co-creators of the new Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and will executive produce, too. The stars previously appeared onscreen together in Solo: A Star Wars Story, in which Glover played Lando Calrissian, and Waller-Bridge portrayed L3-37.
