Mary Elizabeth is Set to Get SMASHED

Oh wow! This is such fantastic news! We’re finally going to see Mary in a dramedy & the plot sounds great! Perfect opportunity for audiences to see Mary show the talent we know she truly has. 🙂 Here’s part of the announcement via Variety:

Super Crispy Entertainment is lining up an impressive cast for its latest project “Smashed,” as “The Thing” heroine Mary Elizabeth Winstead and “Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul are in negotiations to topline the indie dramedy, while Octavia Spencer, the breakout star of “The Help,” and “Parks and Recreation” thesp Nick Offerman are in negotiations to co-star.

Loosely described as a modern day take on Blake Edwards’ 1962 drama “Days of Wine and Roses,” pic stars Winstead and Paul as a married couple whose bond is built on a mutual love of alcohol. Their relationship is put to the test when the wife decides to get sober and attend AA meetings.

Spencer is in talks to play Winstead’s close friend and sponsor, while Offerman is in talks to play an assistant principal at the elementary school where the protag teaches.

Filming starts in November.

Congratulations, Mary! This is really exciting!

If the text is too small, there’s just a text page that’s a little bigger for you to read. Check out all the scans in the gallery. After seeing this pics, I’m even more pumped for this film!

  1. Best Director– Edgar Wright
  2. Best SCREAM-Play–Scott Pilgrim VS The World
  3. Best Villain– All of Ramona’s seven evil exes
  4. Best Supporting Actress– Ellen Wong (Knives)

  7. Best Comic Book Movie– Scott Pilgrim Vs The World
  8. The Ultimate SCREAM– Scott Pilgrim Vs  the World

While I think part of the nominations list is ridiculous, partly because Mary wasn’t even remotely nominated and the film didn’t get more nominations where it should have, I still think we should all try our best to vote everyday and help the movie win some, if not all, categories. The film was fantastic in every way.

The SCREAM awards will be airing on October 18 so be sure to tell your friends and VOTE!
