Mary Talks ‘BrainDead’ Cancellation and ’10 Cloverfield Lane’ Sequel

Speaking at the Television Critics Association day for the third season of Fargo yesterday, Mary spoke with Syfy Wire where she said she’d love to step into her character’s shoes Michelle from 10 Cloverfield Lane:

“I know that Dan and I would love to continue that story,” she said with enthusiasm. “The anthology series is where they are going with it, so whether or not that ever comes back to Michelle’s story, I’m not sure. But I know Dan always had more in mind, so I would love the opportunity to explore that. If anybody would every let us do that, we would jump on it.”

In the same interview, she revealed that what draws her to projects lately are the story and character and the creative minds behind project. Right now is such an exciting time because there is so much incredible material in TV, and so many visionaries in TV like Noah (Hawley). I feel like I have been incredibly lucky the last few years to work with some of those people. Sometimes, you want to go off and experiment and do weird things but for the most part I want to stick with people who are really talented.”

Also during the TCA panel, Mary shared her thoughts on why BrainDead was cancelled, saying it was because the show didn’t quite fit into the audience with CBS but applauded the network for giving them a chance.

New BrainDead Interviews

Several new interviews with Mary are out today ahead of the premiere of BrainDead, premiering this Monday, June 13 at 10pm on CBS. As always, below I will post highlights from each interview, but click on each individual link to read them in full. The first one comes from IGN where Mary talks about the show and 10 Cloverfield Lane.

IGN: What was your first reaction hearing the concept? I think what is really interesting is the Kings making it, because I don’t think anyone predicted this would be their next show after The Good Wife.

Winstead: Absolutely not. I think when it was first brought up to me, the concept wasn’t really brought up. What was said was “the Kings are doing this new show. You should read the script.” The producer who mentioned it to me does both BrainDead and Mercy Street. Eventually it came through as an offer from my agent and the same thing was kind of said. “Take a look at the script. It’s from the Kings. It’s their new show after The Good Wife.” I didn’t know what it was when I opened it. I was just blown away by the script and what a risky, fun, ballsy move it was on their part to do this as their first thing after the Good Wife. it’s such a 180 and a shift in tone and style and story and a real experiment because it’s just a mash up of so many genres. I just felt like it was done so well in the pilot that I read and they’re so talented. When really talented people are going on a limb and doing things no one else is doing, you want along for that ride. That was my thought process on it.

IGN: The night that trailer dropped, I was like “holy s**t, I talked to her about this movie a year ago but I didn’t know it was this movie.” Was it funny for you to have the whole discovery yourself of what it was actually going to be, after thinking, “Oh, I made this little movie with me and John Goodman.”

Winstead: It’s been one of the most pleasant surprises of my career because it’s not that the movie became something else. That’s the movie that we shot. But I didn’t expect anyone to know about it because in my mind, it was this little movie called Valencia with me and John Goodman. It wasn’t until the Cloverfield name got attached to it that people turned their heads and said, “Oh, this sounds interesting.” It is an interesting comment on current moviegoers and a title does need something now. That’s a whole other conversation, but in this case, I’m happy that it made people want to talk about it and curious about it and that it made people want to check it out, and that there’s such a great response.
