After battling alien life forms in this fall’s The Thing prequel, Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs The World) could sure use a drink. So it’s fitting that Winstead’s in negotiations to join the indie drama Smashed, which focuses on a married couple who are brought together by booze. Completing the partnership is Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) who is no stranger to portraying a man with an addiction. I’d imagine that Paul’s character in Smashed will be slightly less tweaked out than the meth-cooking Jesse, as he will be romancing Winstead and seducing her with his passion for alcohol. Loosely based off of the 1962 film, Days of Wine and Roses, Smashed explores what happens to their relationship when Winstead’s character makes a move towards sobriety and attends AA. James Ponsoldt (Off the Black) will direct from a script co-written with Susan Burke. Hit the jump for more of the stellar cast of Smashed.
