Mr. & Mrs Smith Looking for a New Buyer


The Hollywood Reporter says that Regency TV’s adaptation of the hit feature Mr. & Mrs. Smith is on the market.

The big-budget drama pilot was produced for ABC this development season. The network ended up passing on the project, but as part of Regency’s deal with ABC, the production company was granted an early release.

Regency and producing partner Dutch Oven are expected to begin shopping “Smith” to other networks as early as next week. All original auspices on the project — the film’s Simon Kinberg and Doug Liman as well as stars Jordana Brewster and Martin Henderson — remain on board, according to the trade.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie starred in the Liman-directed hit film.
