"Mr. & Mrs. Smith" Make the Leap to the Small Screen

by | January 2, 2007 | Comments

Director Doug Liman and screenwriter Simon Kinberg are about to bring their "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" to network television — only I wouldn’t expect Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie to reprise their roles. (Funny but true: There was a "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" series a few years ago; it starred Scott Bakula and Maria Bello, and it went nowhere fast.)

From Variety: "As in the movie, ABC’s "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" will revolve around two married assassins. Action will pick up about six months after the movie left off. "It’s essentially ‘Married … With Children‘ with guns," Kinberg said. "The show takes all the marital issues a couple has and blows them up to action-genre size." (Full story here.)

The series was supposed to get rolling last year, but Liman and Kinberg have been hard at work on their "Jumper" flick. Mr. Kinberg promises that the series will be funnier than the movie … but also darker, too. Interesting.

Anyone want to try casting this thing? My vote is … some guy and Carla Gugino.
