Exciting news!! According to Showbiz 411, Mary has landed the lead role in a as-of-untitled new film project from The Mindy Project‘s Chris Messina. This will mark Messina’s directorial debut with Winstead in the lead. The plot is as follows:
“Workaholic attorney, Alex [Winstead] is forced to reinvent her life after her husband suddenly leaves. Now faced with the humdrum and sometimes catastrophic events that permeate the fabric of our lives, Alex discovers both a vulnerability and inner strength she had not yet tapped all while trying to hold together her broken family.”
Troy Garity, Derek Luke and Don Johnson (“Django Unchained”) are set to co-star with Mary. The movie is written by Jessica Strong with Katie Nehry and Justin Shilton based on characters the latter two created.
Congrats, Mary! 🙂
