It was 10 years ago this month that New Regency’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith opened, bringing in a big box-office haul and introducing a new Hollywood power couple, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Now unscripted production company 3 Ball Entertainment (Extreme Weight Loss) has teamed with New Regency to develop and produce a reality game-competition version of the hit movie.
The show will feature married couples that compete in a high-octane, high-stakes game, with the producers offering no further details. In the movie, a bored married couple is shocked to discover that they are both assassins hired to kill each other.
3 Balls’ Todd A. Nelson and Brant Pinvidic executive produce.
New Regency previously took a stab at a Mr. & Mrs. Smith scripted series. The project got to a pilot stage at ABC in 2007 with Martin Henderson and Jordana Brewster starring.
