Look out HBO, AMC and Netflix, here comes...Cinemax? Yep ,that would appear to be the case as the cable company are now swinging the auteur stick around, recently bagging Steven Sodebergh's period medical drama "The Knick" and now bagging another high profile filmmaker for an equally compelling new show.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Logan Marshall-Green and Stellan Skarsgard are slated to star in "Quarry," with John Hillcoat set to direct the pilot. So what's it all about? Based on the pulp novels by Max Allan Collins (read our review of "Quarry's Ex"), the post-Vietnam War, '70s set show will follow Max Quarry (Marshall-Green), a cold, methodical almost emotionless hitman, who takes orders from the figure known only as The Broker (Skarsgard). This is how it is in the books anyway, The Broker is a bit of mystery but it seems the show will flesh him out a bit more. As for Winstead, she'll play Joni, Quarry's wife...and if you haven't read the books that's all we'll say, but we do wonder if it'll stay true to the source material regarding her arc.

Either way, sounds like a pretty nifty and gritty concept and it has a pretty solid cast to go along with it. No word yet on when it will lens, but hopefully once Hillcoat is done, he can get his brewing feature "Triple Nine" (which was aiming to shoot this past spring) back on track. [The Wrap]

    I'm curious if this show chances will be hurt by the fact that Cinemax already has a Pulpy crime show called Banshee. Then pulp is a rarity all over TV.

    Boy, this woman is truly getting desperate, she should just call it quits and retire all together from acting, you can almost hear producers laughing at her when she shows them her meager resume; what an embarrassment of an actress.

    oh wow, I knew I'd get torn apart by her fans(the few of them she has anyways), however I know you guys are very well aware that I hit a nerve with this comment, no need to get angry about it. Regardless, you guys have sparked my curiosity, why do you enjoy defending this woman? Hopefully it's because of her "amazing" talent like the one displayed in truly "great" movies like The Thing(2011), Death Proof, Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, & Black X-mas('06), because if that's the case then obviously I'm not seeing the same movies as you all do, because all I see whenever she's on screen is a god-awful actress who can't act her way out of a paper bag.

    She took out a PPO because you kept sending her body fluids, and now she's not your make believe girlfriend any more because you broke up with her, and not it was not amicable.

  • Wow. | June 19, 2013 12:45 PM

    Did she piss in your coffee?
    Did she break up with you claiming you had a small penis?
    Did she tell you your breath smelled like donkey sperm?
    Did she steal money from your grandma?
    Jesus, that's a lot of venom directed at an actress who hasn't really done anything worthy of such scorn.
