Donald Glover and Francesca Sloane are bringing Mr and Mrs Smith to the small screen, here’s the trailer.

2005 was a good year for action films. Jet Li gave one of his greatest performances opposite Bob Hoskins in Unleashed and Christopher Nolan kicked of his iconic trilogy with Batman Begins.

Another hugely successful film that year was Mr And Mrs Smith. It saw Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie play a married couple who, unbeknownst to each other, are both world class assassins. The film originally cast Nicole Kidman to star opposite Pitt, but scheduling conflicts with The Stepford Wives meant she had to drop out.

Doug Liman directed the film from a screenplay by Simon Kinberg, and while it is by no means perfect, it remains a hugely enjoyable, rollicking ride.

Now, Donald Glover and Francesca Sloane have brought the story to the small screen.

The synopsis reads as follows:

Two lonely strangers land a job working for a mysterious spy agency that offers them a glorious life of espionage, wealth, world travels and a dream brownstone in Manhattan. The catch: new identities in an arranged marriage as Mr. & Mrs. John and Jane Smith. Now hitched, John and Jane navigate a high risk mission every week while also facing a new relationship milestone. Their complex cover story becomes even more complicated when they catch real feelings. What’s riskier: espionage or marriage?

Glover also stars alongside Maya Erskine. The supporting cast includes Parker Posey, Wagner Moura, Michaela Coel, John Turturro, Paul Dano, Eiza González, Sarah Paulson, Alexander Skarsgård, Sharon Horgan and Ron Perlman.

Writers for the series include Glover, Sloane, Yvonne Hana Yi, Carla Ching, Adamma Ebo, Adanne Ebo, Stephen Glover and Schuyler Pappas, with episodes directed by Christian Sprenger, who previously worked with Glover on Atlanta.

Mr And Mrs Smith will stream on Amazon Prime Video from the 2nd February 2024.
