ABC's 'Smith' spies Brewster


Jordana Brewster has signed on as the female lead in ABC's drama pilot "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" for director Doug Liman.

The project, from Regency TV and Dutch Oven, is based on the hit 2005 feature written by Simon Kinberg and directed by Liman. It revolves around John and Jane Smith, a married couple who are spies.

Brewster will play Jane, who is as cool, tough and smart as she is gorgeous and can disarm a horde of thugs without breaking a sweat.

Kinberg penned the script and is executive producing with Liman and Dave Bartis.

Brewster was in high demand this pilot season with five projects vying for her, including NBC's "The Bionic Woman."

Her recent credits include the features "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning," "Annapolis" and "Nearing Grace."

Brewster is repped by CAA, Suzan Bymel of Management 360 and attorneys Marcy Morris and Jamie Mandelbaum.
