LATEST: Brad Pitt has returned to the thriller MR AND MRS SMITH - as Angelina Jolie has now signed up to star alongside him.

The OCEAN'S ELEVEN hunk was reported to have dropped out of the mooted movie, after first choice Nicole Kidman pulled out of her role as Mrs Smith due to 'scheduling problems'.

But the project looks to be back on track as A-listers Pitt and Jolie team up to play a married couple who discover they are assassins hired to kill each other.

The movie is due to be directed by The Bourne Identity filmmaker DOUG LIMAN, and has been penned by first-time writer Simon Kinberg.
