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.

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.

    What the f*ck?!??!??! This has to be a f*cking joke, if not then Hollywood is garbage. Give us movielovers something original and smart like The Hurt Locker, or Inglourious Basterds. I mean this movie only released 5 f*cking years ago and now there is gonna be a reboot, that is just ridiculous.

    If the reboot or remake is good, then who gives a sh*t?

    And again, I didn't think of remake when I read the plot description. New title, new characters...more like an unrelated sequel.

    Nothing should be re-booted/adapted for the rest of the decade. There should be some sort of law intact where a studio CANNOT reboot/adapt ANYTHING until 2020. And just see what kind of ORIGINAL content they can come up with.

    If anything should get a reboot it should be Eragon. I think a lot of people enjoyed the story once it was out of the theater and on DVD. I think it would be a success. They would just need to make the armies larger and more like Lord of the Rings instead of small armies with soldiers who look out of shape.

    I've said this before and I'll say it again. I am very forgiving on cinema but this is totally uncalled for.

    There's no reason for this at all. The movie was a box-office success. Reboots are only needed if a franchise becomes stagnant and unprofitable.

    @Nazion The Hulk remake was pretty much needed because the first Hulk movie really sucked. Other than that, these remakes are getting bat-sh*t crazy.

    SERIOUSLY? What is it with all the remakes first spiderman and now this. I don't see any point to remaking this film and if you read the summary it doesn't even look like a remake. Anyway I think this next one will flop because it was Brad and Jolie that made this film work and without them no one is going to see this new remake.

    What!? This is getting really ridiculous. You can't remake a movie that's only 5 years old, can you? Isn't that against the law in California? lol, whatever. I didn't see the first one, and I sure as hell won't see this new one. Seriously, when I saw this I had to check the date to make sure that it wasn't April 1st yet.
