The 2005 action comedy ‘Mr. And Mrs. Smith’ is getting a “reimagining” from Amazon Studios that will include new actors and a new story arc. Amazon has been promoting the series on social media and has announced that it is set to debut for subscribers to Prime Video in 2024.
“Amazon Studios announced the new series Mr. & Mrs. Smith is now premiering in early 2024, exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide. From co-creators and executive producers Donald Glover (Swarm, Atlanta) and Francesca Sloane (Atlanta, Fargo), the series, a reimagining of the 2005 New Regency film, stars Glover as John Smith and Maya Erskine (PEN15) as Jane Smith,” Amazon said in a statement.
They added, “Mr. & Mrs. Smith will be a part of the savings, convenience, and entertainment that Prime members enjoy in a single membership.”
The series was originally meant to premiere in November 2023 but was pushed back to 2024.
Amazon says about the series, “Two strangers, John and Jane, who have given up their identities to be thrown together as partners—in espionage and in marriage. Matched by a mysterious agency, each episode follows them on a new mission and new milestone in their relationship. When the cracks begin to show through, they must fight to stay together. Because in this marriage, divorce is not an option.”
Ben Affleck and Angelina Jolie, who were married at the time, starred in the 2005 film as a seemingly married couple who are oblivious to the fact that they are both part of rival mercenary groups. While it received a mixed reaction from critics, audiences seemed to enjoy it as it made more than three times its budget at the box office. It was directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) and written by Simon Kinberg (Sherlock Holmes).
