[quote7e][size=187e]'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' Head to ABC[/size7e]
Tuesday, January 31, 2006 10:35 AM PT

"Mr. and Mrs. Smith" was a hit at the box office last year, and part of that was probably due to the real-life romance between the movie's stars, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

ABC is betting, though, that its plot will be strong enough to bring viewers to a small-screen adaptation of the movie.

The network has ordered a pilot based on the movie, in which Pitt and Jolie played a suburban married couple who each find out that the other is an assassin when they're hired to kill each other. Pitt and Jolie, needless to say, aren't expected to reprise their roles for the series.

The movie's director, Doug Liman, and writer Simon Kinberg, however, are both attached to the TV project. Each will perform the same duty on the pilot and serve as executive producers along with Liman's producing partner, Dave Bartis.

Because of Liman's schedule -- he's an executive producer of NBC's forthcoming series "Heist" and has some other projects cooking as well -- "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" will probably not be among ABC's pilot crop for fall. It's expected to be a contender for midseason next year or fall 2007.[/quote7e]

I could actually see this being developed into a tv series - done the right way it could work - maybe though they should use the concept and not necessarily Mr and Mrs Smith!

haha - yeah, honestly, I haven't seen the movie, but as a weekly series, it might have potential. :)

I never saw the movie but the concept seems quite fun.

We need some more action type series that are not sci-fi based (as much as i love sci-fi) :)

Brad and angelina were probably the main attractions for the movie but as VMARS stated its the concept that seems quite fun.

I'm not a fan of Brad or Angelina, so I didn't see the movie - its the concept that is interesting for me. :)

Ive seen the movie and it was pretty good, so if the director and writer of the movie are gonna be involved in the show i think it may actually do well as a TV series, even if Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie arent in it.

I doubt either would be in it. Far too much to get them to star in it.
But yes, I love Doug Liman, so if he is attached as part of the project that can only mean good things. :)

[quote:de54a32970="aliasfanjay"]I doubt either would be in it.[/quote:de54a32970] Yeah i realise that, as if BP & AJ two successful movie actors are gonna do a TV series, what i was saying was that they dont need to be in it to make the show a sucess, as long as the director and writers are involved it should be a good Tv series
