Mary Elizabeth Winstead Joins A.C.O.D.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead has joined the cast of the indie comedy A.C.O.D., Deadline reports.

An acronym for “Adult Children of Divorce,” A.C.O.D. will feature Adam Scott as a grown man still dealing with the ramifications of his parents’ divorce and who must do what he can to bring the family together when his younger brother decides to get married. Winstead will play Scott’s character’s longtime girlfriend. Richard Jenkins and Jane Lynch are also slated to star.

Winstead, who previously starred in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and The Thing, next appears in Timur Bekmambetov’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and James Ponsoldt’s indie drama, Smashed.

A.C.O.D. will go into production soon, taking advantage of Scott’s break from shooting “Parks and Recreation” and will be directed by Stuart Zicherman, who also provided the screenplay with Ben Karlin. Zicherman will make his directorial debut, though he’s already established as a writer, drafting episodes of “Lights Out” and “Six Degrees” as well as the 2005 Marvel comic book adaptation Elektra.
