Back in 2007, Mary Elizabeth Winstead was cast as Bruce Willis’ daughter Lucy McClane in Len Wiseman’s “Live Free or Die Hard” and while fans of the actress may have wanted her to return for the fifth installment, well, you’re out of luck. In an interview with The Playlist, Winstead herself says she doubts she’ll be back as the feisty McClane daughter.
“I’m assuming I will not be [in that] because I have not heard anything,” Winstead laughs. “But it’s cool, all the updates and everything. I’m excited to see what happens with it.”
Two days ago, Winstead also spilled some “Abraham Lincoln:Vampire Hunter” details and in the latest interview with Playlist, she reveals some more details about her take on Mary Todd Lincoln and the film:
“When it starts out, we’re very young and just dating and courting and it takes it right up to the presidency and the assassination and everything. So I got to span the life of someone from 19 to 46 and really go from this feisty young woman into this sort of force of nature who’s helping her husband fight along with the country. It was a really fun role to play.”
Aside from the vampires of course, ‘Lincoln’ will be a largely historically accurate telling of the president’s life. “It’s our real history of America [as if] we really did have vampires amongst us. Abraham Lincoln, during his presidency and fights against slavery, was also fighting against these vampires and the evil that was existing in our country. It’s sort of this wild action/adventure period piece,” she added.
Hit up The Playlist’s link where Winstead discusses about her upcoming film “Smashed” with “Breaking Bad’s” Aaron Paul and about another project she was rumored to be in, “The F-Word” opposite Casey Affleck.
