Mary Elizabeth Winstead A Front Runner for Will Smith’s ‘Gemini Man’
I am definitely loving all the newest projects Mary has coming up. With All About Nina completed and The Parts You Lose nearly wrapped, Mary is now vying for the female lead in Ang Lee’s Gemini Man opposite Will Smith.
According to THR, the action film follows Smith in a dual role. One is that of Henry, an aging assassin who wants to get out of the business but finds himself in a battle with the ultimate opponent: his clone, who is 25 years younger and at the peak of his abilities.
Tatiana Maslany is also being considered for the lead and both actresses have read and are testing for the role of Danny, an operative who works for the same company as Henry and is tasked to surveil him. However, she soon teams up with him. Elizabeth Debicki (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) is also in the running for the female lead.
A decision for the part will be made soon as the movie is eying a February start with an international shoot that would include locations ranging from Savannah, Georgia to Budapest, Hungary.
Clive Owen is also going to be in the film, playing the head of the cloning program, one of the villains of the movie.
This sounds like a really great movie and I do hope Mary gets the part! We’ll know within two weeks’ time!
Mary Attends the Critics’ Choice Awards
Mary attended her first Critics Choice Awards on Thursday night with the cast of Fargo. While the show itself was nominated as was her costar David Thewlis, Ewan McGregor was the one who picked up the win for his work as Ray/Emmitt Stussy in the ‘BEST ACTOR IN A MOVIE MADE FOR TV OR LIMITED SERIES’ category. Mary was also nominated in the ‘BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A MOVIE MADE FOR TV OR LIMITED SERIES’, but lost out to Laura Dern.
The important thing is that she was nominated and appeared to have a good time. She rocked a pretty pastels Delpozo dress on the blue carpet and went with fellow actor/friend Ben Lewis.

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.

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.
