It's not Mr. and Mrs. Smith Part 2, but it'll do!

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may costar in another movie, director Ridley Scott's The Counselor, Deadline reported on Thursday.

Based the dark novel by author Cormac McCarthy (No Country for Old Men), the flick -- about an attorney who gets caught up in a drug trafficking scheme -- already signed Michael Fassbender in the title role.

According to Deadline, Jolie, 36, and real-life love Pitt, 48, are in talks to join the cast, plus Javier Bardem. (At one point, fellow Oscar winner Natalie Portman was rumored to be in talks for the female lead.)

This would be the first time that Pitt and Jolie would reunite for a film since Mr. and Mrs. Smith -- the 2005 flick in which they first met and fell in love.

Pitt has said he would definitely be up for collaborating with his longtime partner, with whom he now shares six kids.

"We should be doing [movies] together," he told Entertainment Weekly last year. "We should be doing everything together, and then we could work less. We could have more time off…We work really well together."
