Baku, December 7, AZERTAC
Alexander Skarsgård, Eiza González, Sarah Paulson, Sharon Horgan, Ron Perlman, Billy Campbell, Úrsula Corberó have been cast as guest stars in Amazon‘s forthcoming drama from Donald Glover, “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” according to Variety.
The group of new additions join previously announced guest cast members Paul Dano, Michaela Coel, John Turturro, Parker Posey, Wagner Moura. Glover and Maya Erskine lead the cast.
Based on the 2005 film of the same name that starred Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, the series follows John and Jane, who have given up their identities to be thrown together as partners — in espionage and in marriage. After they’re matched by a mysterious agency, each episode follows the duo as they take on a new mission and new milestone in their relationship.
“Two lonely strangers land jobs working for a mysterious spy agency that offers them a glorious life of espionage, wealth, world travels, and a dream brownstone in Manhattan. The catch? New identities in an arranged marriage as Mr. and Mrs. John and Jane Smith. Now hitched, John and Jane navigate a high-risk mission every week while also facing a new relationship milestone. Their complex cover story becomes even more complicated when they catch real feelings for each other. What’s riskier: espionage or marriage?” reads the series official logline, per Amazon.
Previously slated for a November 2023 opening, the series’ premiere date was moved amid the historic dual Hollywood strikes. “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” is scheduled to be released on Feb. 2.
Glover co-created the “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” series with Francesca Sloane (“Atlanta”). Both are also executive producers on the series with Sloane serving as showrunner. New Regency’s Yariv Milchan, Arnon Milchan, and Michael Schaefer also executive produce along with Stephen Glover, Anthony Katagas, Hiro Murai, and Nate Matteson. Sloane and Glover are both currently under overall deals at Amazon.
