“Mr. & Mrs. Smith,” the film after which Pitt and Jolie began their romantic relationship, was a worldwide box office success that grossed more than $ 450 million.
The film recounted the adventures of a married couple of hit men who work for rival agencies and are commissioned to kill each other, rekindling their bleak relationship.
The original cast included Adam Brody, Kerry Washington, Vince Vaugn, Keith David, Chris Weitz and Michelle Monaghan.
The new series will start from this story and, taking into account the history of the new protagonists, will enhance the comic part.
Glover and Waller-Bridge showed their chemistry before the cameras in “Solo: A Star Wars Story”, the film of the galactic saga released in 2018.
Both have recently won the Emmy for best lead in a comedy, he for “Atlanta” and she for the irreverent “Fleabag”.
