Donald Glover To Star In ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith’ Remake

Still no word on when Atlanta is coming back since its 3rd season has been delayed (for two years now), but it’s not like Donald Glover is just chilling at home. The multi-talented actor will be starring in a remake of Mr. and Mrs. Smith alongside actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge that’s set to drop next year via Amazon Prime.

The OG Mr. and Mrs. Smith starred Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie as secret assassins and dropped in 2005. It was Glover who revealed the remake is in the works via social media.

Reports Page Six:

The project was announced on Instagram — in pandemic fashion, quite literally. Waller-Bridge, 35, wore pajamas to film herself striking a pose in a doorway — the same leg lift Jolie, 45, did for the film’s movie poster and promotional materials. Glover, 37, filmed a bit of himself flossing — the dance, not the dental routine — to celebrate.

The videos, which originated in Glover’s Instagram Stories, were also reposted by Jennifer Salke, the head of Amazon Studios.

According to Glover, the project is via New Regency and Amazon Studios in collaboration with writer Francesca Sloane and is scheduled to release via Amazon Prime Video in 2022.

You might have seen Glover as Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story which also included Phoebe Waller-Bridge as the voice of droid L3-37. The same robot Calrissian had, let’s say, an affinity for.

As for FX’s Atlanta, season 3 and 4 are in the works, per Glover, and he also has new Childish Gambino music on the way, too.  Consider us sold, on everything.

Donald Glover Welcomes Third Child With His Longtime Girlfriend, Reveals They’re Considering Adopting

Donald Glover Welcomes Third Child With His Longtime Girlfriend Reveals Theyre Considering Adopting

Donald Glover revealed that his longtime girlfriend, Michelle, gave birth to their third child.

He spilled the tea during a GQ discussion with I May Detroy You star, Michaela Coel. “You know, I had [a kid] during the coronavirus,” the rapper and actor said.

He described the day his son was born as a “weird moment” because it was amid the protests for George Floyd. “Yeah, it was nuts. I was in the hospital bed. My son had just been born, like, an hour before and I was watching the George Floyd video. It was such a weird moment,” Glover said.

The actor revealed that he and his girlfriend are considering adopting a child. “And we actually have been talking about [it], because we have three boys so I’m like, ‘Oh, it might be nice to be get a girl in there.’” He shared, “So I think all those are great options.”

The notoriously private couple have kept their children out of the spotlight since welcoming their son, Legend, in 2016. The following year he welcomed his second son, and now there’s a new addition to the bunch.

Congratulations to Donald Glover and Michelle on their new bundle of joy.

adidas Announces Partnership With Donald Glover Has Ended

The partnership between Donald Glover and Adidas has come to an end. T In 2018, they were starting an animated short film, in which fans were excited to have it when it will be released to the public. It came down to only having three sneaker deal releases that were supposed to drop April of 2019.

Gambino wanted to tell a story by the shoes they are wearing. A statement from Childish states, “Value isn’t quantified by what you wear, rather the experiences from them. And you make the decision on what works for you, you live through your own lens. The partnership for me is about being able to exemplify what doing your own thing truly looks and feels like.”

Donald Glover’s Partnership With adidas Officially A Wrap

adidas x Donald Glover Presents

Source: adidas / adidas

While we anxiously await the next season of our favorite FX series Atlanta (seriously, hurry up!), Donald Glover is out and about making moves. But his latest venture has gone up in flames before it really even began.

Just a few days after debuting – and deleting – some new music online in Donald Glover Presents, adidas has released a statement confirming that they’re partnership with the Golden Globe winning actor has come to an end after only a year and change of working together. Complex is reporting that Glover and adidas have decided to go their separate ways and in a statement released by the house that Run DMC built, they wished the actor/artist well on his future endeavors.

“The Adidas Originals by Donald Glover partnership has come to an end. Together Adidas and Glover set out to look beyond the confines of a traditional collaboration inspired by limitless creativity. Adidas continues to be inspired by Glover’s visionary creativity and wishes him the best in his future endeavors.”

The campaign officially kicked off in April of 2019 with a series of videos featuring Glover and Monique in comedic form and showed much promise and creativity as Glover was looking to make his mark as the brand’s Co-Creator.

“I believe it’s important not to feel like ideas are bound by specific guidelines and adidas Originals has given me the opportunity to create on my own terms,” said Glover via a press release. “I’m looking forward to seeing what that leads to.”

No word on where Glover might take his talents but we wouldn’t be mad if he went from the three stripes brand to the swoosh conglomerate that Yeezy left. Just an idea.

Quarantine Slaps: Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover Drops Surprise Collection Of Music

LACMA Art + Film Gala

Donald Glover clearly had some time. The renowned actor also known as (sometimes) Childish Gambino just surprised dropped a new collection of music titled Donald Glover Presents in the middle of the night  (March 15) with no care for sleeping schedules.

As Rolling Stone reports, the music arrived via his website and is billed under his name rather than his aforementioned music moniker. The 12-song drop features appearances from 21 Savage, Ariana Grande and SZA is playing on a loop.

The project also features some previously released tunes including “Algorythm,” “Feels Like Summer,” and Warlords.” Besides that, and until we get the tracklist, just let the joint play because there are some definite slappers on there.

For now. Donald Glover Presents is only streaming via website, right here. Considering the tumultuous times (see: Coronavirus), Glover’s tunes are receiving praise on Twitter, mostly for arriving right on time.

Glover’s last proper album, Awaken, My Love!, was released in 2016. He then went off a couple of years later with “This Is America,” winning multiple Grammys in the process.

Peep the reactions to Donald Glover Presents belowCan we speed up the arrival of that next season of Atlanta, though?

Childish Gambino Drops Surprise Album ‘Donald Glover Presents’

Today, Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino “dropped” a new album out of nowhere. Did he know that the world is at full attention from coronavirus office and school closings?

The 12-track album includes single “Feels Like Summer” and new songs featuring SZA, 21 Savage and Ariana Grande. Currently, there is no album title that has been shared. However, when you head to the Livestream link a text field opens beneath that lets you input text. The has artwork is available as a four-panel illustration that depicts the world on fire.

How metaphorically timely is that!

A link leading to a site called donaldgloverpresents.com was first tweeted. The album was also live streamed via the website.

In a unique twist, the album was released under the artist’s real name and not his rap moniker, Childish Gambino.

‘Atlanta’ Season Three Postponed Due To Coronavirus

Coronavirus continues to disrupt your regularly scheduled programming as Atlanta season 3 has reportedly been postponed.

According to Deadline, Donald Glover’s signature series is just one of a few FX original programs that have been postponed.

The other shows are Fargo, Snowfall season 4, and the new comic book series “Y: The Last Man.” Production for these series will be suspended for at least two weeks.

President Donald Trump declared a national state of emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Trump said the move will free up about $50 billion in emergency funding to assist “our shared fight against the disease.”

Atlanta executive producer Stephen Glover had a little fun about the postponement.

He then followed it up with a lighter note.

Coronavirus has shaken up the entertainment and sports world considerably as people are waiting for things to return to normal.

Seasons 3 & 4 of ‘Atlanta’ Slated For A 2021 Release, Will Feature Scenes Outside of The U.S.

Rejoice, FX’s hit show, and the brainchild of Donald Glover, Atlanta is coming back, you’re just going to have to be patient and wait another year for it.

Variety is reporting that seasons three and four will arrive in 2021 and will be shown in two installments. FX network’s chairman, John Landgraf, revealed the news during the Television Critics Association press tour. He also added that fans can expect the first set of episodes will arrive in January 2021.

Landgraf disclosed that we can expect a “new era of the show” and that forthcoming seasons will be broken up into two parts. The first part will be comprised of ten episodes, while the second part, which is expected to arrive in fall 2021, will have 8. Landgraf also revealed that yes, the show will still live in Atlanta, BUT, we can also look forward to some scenes that were shot “outside the U.S.”

Fans have been eagerly waiting for news of when they can expect the show back, which has been missing in action since season 2 that was dubbed “Robbin’ Season.” We learned back in August of last year that the show was already renewed for a fourth season despite not even know when to expect season 3.

Atlanta’s slow return could be a product of its cast being booked, blessed, and busy. Since the show’s premiere, Donald Glover, Brian Tyree Henry, Lakeith Stansfield, and Zazie Beetz have been collecting well-deserved Hollywood checks on the regular starring in damn near everything.

It seems FX knows fans are salivating for more hijinks from Earn, Paper Boi, and Darius and are aiming to reward them mightily when Atlanta returns, with a boatload of episodes ready to go.

Source: Curtis Baker/FX / Curtis Baker/FX

We’re still eagerly awaiting the third season of Atlanta. But today (August 6), we learned has already renewed the Donald Glover-helmed series for a fourth season.

Deadline reports that the news was revealed at FX’s presentation at the TCA summer press tour. Production for both season 3 and 4 is set to begin next spring, with each series consisting of eight episodes.

“What more can be said about Atlanta than the critical acclaim and accolades that Donald, Paul, Dianne, Stephen and Hiro have earned for two exceptional seasons of what is clearly one of the best shows on television,” said FX Entertainment President Eric Schrier. “This group of collaborators and cast have created one of the most original, innovative stories of this generation and we are proud to be their partners.”

Season 2, dubbed ‘Atlanta Robbin’ Season,’ wrapped up way back in May 2018.

Meanwhile, damn near the entire main cast—besides Glover; Brian Tyree Henry, Lakeith Stanfield and Zazie Beatz—have become certified stars.
