The small screen version of Doug Liman's 2005 hit movie"Mr and Mrs Smith" is reportedly on the market after ABC decided not to take on the project.
Despite the success of the big screen version, the TV adaptation of "Mr and Mrs Smith" apparently gets slightly stumbled on its way to have itself aired on the small screen.
The Hollywood Reporter has learned that ABC, for which the big-budgeted pilot of the series was produced, has ended up passing on the project, and thereby prompts Regency Television to put it on the market for sale. However, as part of Regency's deal with ABC, the production company was granted an early release.
Being so, Regency and producing partner Dutch Oven are expected to begin shopping around the series as early as next week. According to the trade, all original names behind it, including Simon Kinberg, Doug Liman, Jordana Brewster, and Martin Henderson will still remain on board.
