Cinemax has found Quarry's rock.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead has been cast on the Cinemax drama pilot, "Quarry," opposite star Logan Marshall Green, TheWrap has learned exclusively.
She will play Joni, Quarry's (Green) wife, who is one of the few who stands by her husband after he returns from the Vietnam War.
Written by Graham Gordy and Michael D. Fuller, the project follows Quarry, a Vietnam vet who evidently learned his lessons all too well during his time overseas. Now he's home, earning a living as a cold, remorseless hitman, taking orders from a man called simply The Broker (Stellan Skarsgard).
Directed by John Hillcoat, the project is set in the 70s and is based on Max Allen Collins' pulp detective novels.
Winstead most recently starred in the last two "Die Hard" films as John McClane's (Bruce Willis) daughter Lucy. Her other film credits include "The Thing" and "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World."
Winstead is represented by WME, Anonymous Content and Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum Morris & Klein.
