Who's up for a Mr. and Mrs. Smith reboot?

Since 2005 was so long ago, Regency Enterprises wants to reboot MR. AND MRS. SMITH, but with different actors and a new title, MR. AND MRS. JONES.

Most of you remember the the plot of SMITH, a couple (Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie) with a fading marriage are surprised to find out that they are contracted to kill one another. At first, the deal sounds intriguing, but as they venture through their journey they realize that they do belong together.

During filming, something seemed to grab more attention than the actual movie itself. If you read any of the gossip rags at the time, there were rumors that Jolie and Pitt were hooking up. Only problem with this scenario was the fact that Jennifer Aniston was still married to Pitt, even though they were in the process of getting a divorce. The press had a field day with this saying that this was the reason the marriage was ending, etcetera, etcetera...you should know all about it by now.

The source for Vulture jokes that the rumored fallout of the Pitt-Jolie marriage might be the reason for the new cast in the sequel reboot. The real reason though is economic. They want to pay less for the actors. Even though the last name is changed in the sequel's title, they figure people will already be familiar with the original title and story of the movie so in turn they might might go see a sequel reboot.

JONES will serve as an origin story about a similar but differently named pair of twentysomethings. The two spies are set up as a fake married couple when they graduate agency trading. Akiva Goldsman (I AM LEGEND, HANCOCK) is set to produce.

Would you still consider this a reboot, even with the change of the last name in the title and younger actors? Give your thoughts in the strike backs!

Extra Tidbit: Jolie was considered for the role of Kelly Kapowski on SAVED BY THE BELL.
