The only thing the atrocious black comedy Mr. and Mrs. Smith had going for it was the combined megawatt comeliness of its two co-stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, and according to Variety the ABC TV pilot based on the movie won’t even have that. To those who care, the film’s direcotr Doug Liman will be on the project, and writer Simon Kinberg refers to the movie’s TV incarnation as Married . . .with Children with guns, which should strike fear into the heart of anyone within 200 feet of this project. Oh, and a previous attempt starring Maria Bello and (dear God) Scott “Quantum Leap this” Bakula tanked miserably.
Be very very scared.
