“Mr. & Mrs. Smith – ‘Michaela Coel’,’John Turturro’ and ‘Paul Dano’ Cast in Donald Glover’s series”
The cast of Donald Glover’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith reboot series for Amazon has expanded thanks to the addition of Michaela Coel, John Turturro, and Paul Dano.
The three actors are all scheduled to appear in the new series, according to a recent Variety report, though specific character information is currently being withheld. Glover and Maya Erskine will play the leads in the series as John and John, a couple hired by a shadowy secret agency and plunged into the world of espionage.
The limited series I May Destroy You, which Coel developed, directed, and starred in on her way to earning an Emmy Award for best writing in a limited series, is best remembered for her part in it. She will next appear in the much awaited Black Panther sequel, Wakanda Forever. Dano and Turturro will also reconvene on the project, having most recently been together in the successful DC movie The Batman.
Based on the same-named action comedy by Doug Liman from 2005, Mr. & Mrs. Smith is a reboot series. Glover and Francesca Sloane, who are also both serving as showrunners, co-created it and served as executive producers. The undertaking will be a component of Glover’s larger contract with Amazon Studios.
Executive producers include Jenny Robins of Wells Street Films, Michael Schaefer, and Yariv Milchan of New Regency. It is expected to make its Prime Video debut.
Simon Kinberg and Doug Liman wrote and directed the first movie. It was centred on a wealthy married couple who were shocked to discover that they were both assassins working for different agencies and had been given the task of killing each other. Oscar winners Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie served as its leaders.
