I have to admit, I’m dying to see what Steven Soderbergh does with “Haywire”, his first real martial arts/action movie, moreso than I’m anxious to see if MMA fighter Gina Carano can actually act, or act-ish. I’m sure she’ll do fine, since Soderbergh has surrounded her with some incredible actors like Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, and Michael Fassbender. Anyways, haven’t seen anything official from the movie yet until now, in the form of some promo posters for the movie. Check them out below.
Beautiful freelance covert operative Mallory Kane (Gina Carano) is hired out by her handler to various global entities to perform jobs which governments can’t authorize and heads of state would rather not know about. After a mission to rescue a hostage in Barcelona, Mallory is quickly dispatched on another mission to Dublin. When the operation goes awry and Mallory finds she has been double crossed, she needs to use all of her skills, tricks and abilities to escape an international manhunt, make it back to the United States, protect her family, and exact revenge on those that have betrayed her.
Starring Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Michael Fassbender, Antonio Banderas, Michael Angarano, Mathieu Kassovitz, Gina Carano, Eddie J. Fernandez, Anthony Wong, Tim Connolly, Maximino Arciniega, Julian Alcaraz, Aaron Cohen, and directed by Soderbergh.
“Haywire”, originally called “Knockout”, takes you out sometime in August.
