If a new story is to be believed, it seems a 2005 summer blockbuster could get a reboot. Vulture is reporting that Fox is developing Mr. and Mrs. Smith remake.
Fox remaking Mr. and Mrs. Smith so soon?
The site also reports that the new film will be titled Mr. and Mrs. Jones and will not feature the original film's stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. While the first film centered on a dull married couple who both lead double lives as assassins without either of them knowing their spouse's true profession, this film will revolve a younger couple who are set up as a fake husband and wife when they complete their agency training.
Akiva Goldsman is attached to produce the new remake. It was said that financial matters were at the heart of the remake, since the studio could revisit a popular title without the high-priced talent attached to the first film, going with younger, more cost-efficient stars.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith was released June 10th, 2005 and stars Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Vince Vaughn, Adam Brody, Kerry Washington, Keith David, Chris Weitz, Rachael Huntley. The film is directed by Doug Liman.
