Mary Re-teams with Aaron Paul for ‘The Parts You Lose’

This is very great news! Mary, who back in 2012 starred with Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul in the indie film Smashed, has reunited with her costar to bring us the new dramatic thriller ‘The Parts You Lose‘.

According to Deadline, the film follows the unlikely friendship formed between a young deaf boy, Wesley, and a fugitive criminal who takes refuge in an abandoned barn on the family’s rural North Dakota farm. After forming a deep bond with the man, the boy must decide where to place his allegiances when the authorities begin to close in on the fugitive. Winstead will play Wesley’s mother Gail.

Aaron will play the fugitive criminal while newcomer Danny Murphy will play the young boy. Halt and Catch Fire‘s Christopher Cantwell is directing the film and production has already begun in Winnipeg, Canada.

Mary Starring in New Film, “All About Nina”

After spending parts of my summer wondering when this was finally getting announced, it happened! Deadline has reported that Mary will be starring in a new semi-autobiographical dark comedy called “All About Nina”, opposite Oscar winner Common.

The story follows Nina Geld (Winstead), a bracingly funny and blisteringly provocative stand-up comedian whose career is taking off, but whose personal life is a near-complete disaster. To escape a difficult ex and to prepare for a prospectively life-changing audition, Nina flees to Los Angeles where she meets Rafe (Common), who challenges almost every preconception she has — including those around her own deeply troubled past.

Beau Bridges, Kate Del Castillo, Chace Crawford, Clea DuVall, Jay Mohr, Melonie Diaz, Camryn Manheim, Mindy Sterling and Angelique Cabral co-star in the film.

Mary filmed this over the summer with director Eva Vives, marking this film as her directorial debut.

They wrapped filming at the end of last month.

The Art of Self Defense to Begin Filming Later this Month

Update: Mary is NOT going to be in the film anymore. She was not announced in the cast list, but is currently filming another project which will hopefully be announced soon.

Well, here’s some exciting news! According to Project Casting, it’s been revealed that Riley’s next film, The Art of Self Defense, will be filming from September 11-October 13 in Louisville, Kentucky with Jesse Eisenberg joining the cast! Additionally, according to Casting 360, Imogen Poots is rumored to be part of the film.

Last year while Mary was still on BrainDead, she had revealed in an interview that the movie was very much in the karate world and that while she played the antagonist in Faults, it’ll be the opposite this time around.

The project between Riley and Mary was first announced in May of 2016.

You can find more info about being an extra in the film by visiting the casting links provided above.
