Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane) will star as the titular Nina in the semi-autobiographical dark comedy, All About Nina.

The story follows Nina Geld (Winstead), a bracingly funny and blisteringly provocative stand-up comedian whose career is taking off, but whose personal life is a near-complete disaster. To escape a difficult ex and to prepare for a prospectively life-changing audition, Nina flees to Los Angeles where she meets Rafe (Common), who challenges almost every preconception she has — including those around her own deeply troubled past.

Winstead recently starred on the third season of Fargo. Her recent film work includes 10 Cloverfield Lane and Swiss Army Man. Common recently was in John Wick: Chapter 2 and has several films currently in production or post-production.

Vives is producing her own directorial debut. Her 2000 short film Five Feet High And Rising won awards at Sundance and Cannes.
