Wagner Moura already has his next project in Hollywood! The Brazilian was confirmed in the cast of the series Sr. and Mrs. Smith, which is being developed for Prime Video. The production is based on the 2005 film starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie – Donald Glover and Maya Erskine take on the lead roles in the new adaptation.

According to Variety, Wagner Moura’s role is kept under wraps. He is not expected to participate in every episode of the attraction, but he will have a recurring role – that is, he will appear in more than one chapter. Parker Posey, Dr. Smith from Lost in Space (2018-2021), also agreed to have an arc in the production.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith will also feature Paul Dano and John Torturro, who respectively played the villains Riddler and Carmine Falcone in Batman (2022), and Michaela Coel, from I Will Destroy You (2020) and who will be in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Acquired by Prime Video, the Mr. and Mrs. Smith will be a TV series. The project was initially conceived by Donald Glover and Phoebe Waller-Bridger (Fleabag), who would also share the leading role. But the actress ended up leaving the attraction for creative differences and was replaced by Maya.

The series is an adaptation of the action-comedy of the same name directed by Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) and starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. The film follows a couple who are surprised to learn that the two are hitmen hired by competing agencies to kill each other.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith marks another great international project with Wagner Moura for streaming. After starring in Narcos (2015-2017), on Netflix, the Brazilian was in Sergio (2020) and in the super production Agente Oculto (2022), on the same platform. On Apple TV+, he shared the leading role of Illuminadas (2022) with Elisabeth Moss, from The Handmaid’s Tale.
