Mr. and Mrs. Smith reboot in the works

source: vulture.com

Regency Enterprises is developing a sort-of-reboot-more-like-a-prequel to their 2005 hit Mr. and Mrs. Smith. The original film starred Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie as married assassins unaware that their spouse shared the exact same profession.

Regency, whose films are distributed by Fox Studios, is now moving ahead with the imaginatively titled Mr. and Mrs. Jones. The new film will follow a pair of twenty-something spies who are set up as a married couple upon their graduation from spy school.

It seems likely that Pitt and Jolie are too expensive for a Mr. and Mrs. Smith sequel, hence the “convenient” reboot that features vastly younger actors.

Although we do not know who the two (expectedly sexy) stars will be, we can only assume that they will begin a torrid affair following production, adopt a bunch of foreign babies, and then dissolve publicly before a sequel to Mr. and Mrs. Jones can be made, forcing the studio to, once again, hit the reset button.

Oscar winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind) will produce the project. He also acted as producer on the now-ancient original film.

Discuss: Too soon?
