In some very exciting news, it has been announced that Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired domestic distribution rights to The Parts You Lose, the Christopher Cantwell thriller starring Aaron Paul, Scoot McNairy, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Danny Murphy. A late summer theatrical release is planned for the movie, which is having its world premiere tonight at the Sun Valley Film Festival.
In the film, Aaron plays a fugitive criminal who forms an unlikely bond with Wesley, a deaf child (Murphy). When authorities close in on the farm he’s chosen to hide out in, Wesley has to decide whom to trust. Mary will play Danny Murphy’s character’s mother, Gayle.
Glad we finally got some news about this film! Hopefully a trailer isn’t too far away now! I will let you all know about a theatrical release once more info is available!

Two new actresses have been added to the long list of the Birds of Prey cast. First up is actress Charlene Amoia. Amoia, who played Wendy the Waitress in CBS’ How I Met Your Mother, will play Maria Bertinelli, the mother of Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s vigilante the Huntress/Helena Bertinelli and the wife of mafia syndicate gangster Franco Bertinelli.
And according to the imdb cast list, Ella Mika will be playing a ‘young Helena Berinelli’ in the film.
Additionally, it is being rumored that if Birds of Prey does well at the box office, we could potentially see a spinoff of Mary’s character the Huntress.
According to sources close to We Got This Covered, Warner Bros. is developing solo movies for Huntress, Black Canary and Cassandra Cain that could be going into production if Birds of Prey proves a big enough hit at the box office. Additionally, it’s said that Rosie Perez’s character Renee Montoya could be getting the same treatment, too, though this possibility is deemed less likely.
This is very exciting news! Can’t wait to see the first trailer for the movie.
Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) will hit theaters on February 7, 2020.

Looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer to see Mary in the upcoming sci-fi/action film Gemini Man. According to Screen Rant, children’s horror adaptation Are You Afraid of the Dark? and Ang Lee’s Will Smith-starring action sci-fi Gemini Man have swapped their 2019 release dates. The former will now be arriving a week earlier, while the latter will be arriving a week later than previously expected.
Originally, Gemini Man was scheduled for October 4, 2019. It’ll now be released on October 11, 2019 instead.

Last week I had mentioned that Mary would be getting an ‘artist of distinction’ award from the Newport Beach Film Festival for her amazing career, and that event took place on Sunday afternoon as Mary and fellow honorees Colman Domingo, Topher Grace and Zazie Beetz attended the event. In the gallery, I added over 20+ photos of Mary there, and have included a few videos of Mary being interviewed on what movies influenced her, acting career advice, and spoke a little about Birds of Prey. Enjoy the new content!

Variety has announced that Mary will be receiving an Artist of Distinction Award at this year’s Newport Beach Film Festival taking place on November 11 along with her former The Beauty Inside co-star Topher Grace and Fear the Walking Dead‘s Colman Domingo.
Over the past 20 years, Winstead has been portraying complex women in projects on TV (“Fargo”) and film, both studio (“Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”) and indie (“Smashed”). This year, she took on one of her most challenging roles as a troubled standup comedian in “All About Nina,” the feature film debut from writer-director Eva Vives. “When I read it, it was absolutely the most intimidating role I’d ever read. It was an easy yes for me obviously, because the role was so incredible,” Winstead says. Only later did the fear sink in. “The closer we got to shooting it, the more scared I started to become.”
Up next, Winstead will be seen in Ang Lee’s “Gemini Man” and “The Parts You Lose.” And she’s just landed the coveted role of Helena Bertinelli / Huntress in “Birds of Prey,” the Harley Quinn spinoff with Margot Robbie. But she’ll never abandon the indie world. “I love it,” she says of the fast pace, noting “All About Nina” was shot in 21 days. “It’s difficult for sure but in terms of the energy, the frenetic, intense energy, it’s easier to get that on a short shoot.”
Congrats to Mary on this fantastic recognition in her career! I’m very happy for her! She deserves this. 🙂

In further casting news for Birds of Prey, it has been announced that Mary’s Fargo co-star Ewan McGregor has joined the DC film as the villain Black Mask. He will join Margot Robbie who is reprising her role of Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad along with Jurnee Smollett-Bell who is playing Black Canary. Rosie Perez is playing Renee Montoya.
Black Mask is a Gotham City mob boss aka Roman Sionis who leads the False Face Society gang. In the comics, he killed his wealthy parents in order to take control of their corporation, but he was a terrible businessman and lost everything. He blames others for his shortcomings with Bruce Wayne being one of his targets.
In a recent interview this past week, director Cathy Yan confirmed that Birds of Prey will be rated R. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on February 7, 2020.
Nice to see that Nikki Swango and Ray Stussy will be reunited again! 😛
