The “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” movie starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie was released back in 2005.

The film saw the Hollywood duo play a married couple who worked as assassins belonging to competing agencies.

Phoebe previously worked alongside Donald, 37, on “Solo: A Star Wars Story“, and she’s also helped to write the new James Bond film, “No Time to Die“.

Speaking about her Bond experience, she previously said, “The wonderful thing is … you have these incredible conversations about this iconic character who you’ve grown up with.”

“Then when you’re on board, it’s like every other job because everyone is just making a story, making a thing work.

“And you’re just suddenly in a room again with post-its on the wall, and then you’ll go to the loo and you’ll see a set being built outside for some extraordinary thing and you’re like, ‘Oh yes, this is different, this is different from Fleabag.’ “
