Here’s a combo you don’t think of right away: Donald Glover, of “Atlanta” fame and many other successes, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge of “Fleabag.”
This twosome are going to play Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie from the great 2005 movie, “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.” Donald and Phoebe will be married hit men-woman whatever. They’re teamed with Francesca Sloane, whose credits include “Atlanta,” and some kind of adaptation of Anais Nin’s erotic works,= to make this a reality for Amazon Studios.
How clever of Amazon to find a way to continue their relationship with Phoebe. And to bring in Glover, sometimes known as Childish Gambino, and a hot commodity in all regards, is brilliant. It’s got to be comedy, right? With these two it can’t be too dark.
We’ll see what’s next.
