Chalk up a new film for Mary! Variety is reporting that Mary has joined James Ponsoldt’s latest film, The Spectacular Now. Along with new cast members Kyle Chandler, Bob Odenkirk and Andre Royo, Chandler will play Teller’s dad, while Winstead will play his sister.
The coming-of-age tale follows Sutter Keely (Teller), a high school senior who only lives for the moment, and Aimee Finecky (Woodley), the mercurial introvert he attempts to “save” from life as a social outcast. As their relationship deepens, the lines between right and wrong, friendship and love, saving and corrupting, become inextricably blurred.
The film stars Shailene Woodley, Miles Teller and Brie Larson, while Kaitlyn Dever, Masam Holden and Dayo Okeniyi with production currently underway in Athens, Georgia.
FYI: Mary & Ponsoldt most recently worked with Ponsoldt on the soon-to-be released film, SMASHED.
