LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Divorce papers are close to being signed for "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," a thriller that was set to star Nicole Kidman (news) and Brad Pitt (news).


After losing Kidman a month ago because of scheduling conflicts, Mr. Smith -- aka Pitt -- is close to leaving the Regency Enterprises project as well, also because of scheduling conflicts, his reps confirmed.

The actor is in Mexico filming Warner Bros. Pictures' "Troy" until next month. He would have then done "Smith" before segueing to "Ocean's Twelve" for director Steven Soderbergh (news) and Warners in February, but none of the actresses he had approved for "Smith" -- including Kidman, Catherine Zeta-Jones (news) and Angelina Jolie (news) -- was available at the right time.

Sources said "Smith" hasn't hit the end of the road, with other names being bandied about to replace Pitt, including Will Smith (news) and Johnny Depp (news).

The project, which Doug Liman ("The Bourne Identity") is attached to direct, centers on a bored married couple who discover that they are enemy assassins hired to kill each other. Regency declined comment Tuesday.
