Donald Glover will star in a remake of 2005 hitman comedy Mr. & Mrs. Smith, which is coming to Prime Video in 2024.

UPDATE (11/16, 12:46 p.m. ET): The series has now set a premiere date of February 2, 2024.

The film is being turned into a series, with Glover starring opposite Maya Erskine. Glover co-created the series with Francesca Sloane, whom he previously worked with on Atlanta.

The series has a slightly different premise than the movie, although both are about a married couple who are both assassins. In the case of the movie, they are each hiding their true identity before being assigned to kill one another.

The show's synopsis, on the other hand, is this: "Meet the Smiths: Two strangers, John and Jane, who have given up their identities to be thrown together as partners — in espionage and in marriage. Matched by a mysterious agency, each episode follows them on a new mission and new milestone in their relationship. When the cracks begin to show through, they must fight to stay together. Because in this marriage, divorce is not an option."
