“Talk about the dream team! Donald and Phoebe are two of the most talented creators and performers in the world. It is truly a dream for us, as it will be for our global audience, that these two forces of nature work together as a powerful creative team, ”said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “Mr. and Mrs. Smith is an iconic property, and we can’t wait to see how Donald, Phoebe and Francesca make it their own. We are delighted to be working with them and with such great partners at New Regency.”
Yariv Milchan and Michael Schaefer of New Regency said: “After having had the pleasure of fruitful collaborations with the talented Donald Glover, most recently on the island of Guava, we all started talking about other projects to do together and when he suggested the idea of a new take and iteration on the movie New Regency, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, we jumped at the chance to start right away. The addition of Phoebe and her company Wells Street Films as a collaborator and co-star takes everything to another level and makes the project worthy of a reinvention for new audiences and old fans of the original film. We are delighted to be working with Donald, Phoebe, Francesca and the entire Amazon Studios team. “
The 2005 feature film Mr. and Mrs. Smith, from New Regency and starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, grossed $ 487 million worldwide when it was released.
