The Thing actress is said to have filmed a cameo role for the upcoming fifth instalment of the Die Hard franchise starring Bruce Willis.
Winstead previously played the role of John McClane's daughter Lucy in Live Free or Die Hard in 2007.
Extra Ted Cross revealed that he got to work with Willis and Winstead on the set of the film.
"I got to work with Bruce Willis again, which is always nice," Cross posted on his blog. "The best, though, was that I got to work with Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who plays Willis's daughter."
Director John Moore recently stated that the action project will not be lighthearted in tone.
Winstead has also joined the cast of indie comedy The Spectacular Now.
A Good Day to Die Hard will arrive at cinemas on February 14, 2013.
