Aaron Paul (“Breaking Bad”), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (“Scott Pilgrim”), Nick Offerman (“Parks and Recreation”) and Octavia Spencer (“The Help”) are all said to be up for roles in James Ponsoldt’s indie drama “Smashed” for Super Crispy Entertainment reports Variety.
Considered a modern version of “Days of Wine and Roses”, Winstead and Paul would play a married couple with a shared penchant for drinking who have their lives turned upside down when Winstead’s character decides to go sober.
Spencer would play a friend and AA sponsor of Winstead, while Offerman would play an assistant principal at an elementary school. Susan Burke co-wrote the script with Ponsoldt (“Off the Black”) .
Jonathan Schwartz, Jennifer Cochis and Andrea Sperling are producing.
