The news comes courtesy of Glover and Waller-Bridge, who posted the announcement in separate Instagram stories, subsequently shared by Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke, who also credits Fargo’s Francesca Sloan as a co-creator.
“Talk about the dream team!” says Salke in a statement, reported by Variety. “Donald and Phoebe are two of the most talented creators and performers in the world. It’s truly a dream for us, as it will be for our global audience, to have these two forces of nature collaborating as a powerhouse creative team.”
The 2005 action comedy saw Jolie and Pitt star as a married couple living in suburbia, who discover that they’re both secretly assassins working for competing agencies. “We can’t wait to see how Donald, Phoebe, and Francesca make it their own,” adds Salke.
Glover and Waller-Bridge have previously collaborated in the Star Wars film Solo, and have separately produced projects for Amazon. The former’s Rihanna-starring film Guava Island premiered via Amazon in April 2019, while Waller-Bridge’s cult sitcom Fleabag was co-produced by the company.
