Phoebe Waller-Bridge has reportedly stepped away from Amazon’s Mr & Mrs Smith series.
However, Waller-Bridge’s departure from the show was said to be amicable, with sources saying she remains friends with Glover.
The Independent has contacted Waller-Bridge’s representatives for comment.
The show is apparently still on track for its planned 2022 debut.
Waller-Bridge and Glover first worked together in the 2018 Star Wars spin-off, Solo: A Star Wars Story.
The Mr & Mrs Smith reboot was conceptualised by Glover, who then pitched it to Waller-Bridge.
Head of Amazon Studios, Jennifer Saike announced in February that the two Emmy Award winners were going to reprise Pitt and Jolie’s roles in the action movie. Saike shared a video of Glover dancing and Waller-Bridge recreating Jolie’s pose on the original poster, on Instagram.
Doug Liman’s 2005 film followed the story of a bored married couple (played by Pitt and Jolie) who find out they are rival spies on a mission to assassinate each other.
Glover will reportedly remain on-board as the show’s executive producer and lead. Francesca Sloane, who has previously worked with Glover on FX’s Atlanta and is the co-creator of the reboot, will also continue as the showrunner.
