The move is understood to have been made due to creative differences.
The series is currently being written ahead of production next year. Amazon will now begin re-casting the female lead, with Glover still attached to star as well as in his roles as co-creator and exec producer. Francesca Sloane is co-creator and showrunner on the series.
The project is a reboot of Doug Liman’s 2005 action comedy film of the same name, which starred Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. The movie followed a bored married couple who are surprised to learn that they are both assassins hired by competing agencies to kill each other.
Both Glover and Waller-Bridge have overall deals at Amazon. The streamer did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
