Gina Carano has a machinegun in this pic from Steven Soderbergh's Haywire

Jul. 5, 2011by: Dave Davis

When he selected MMA fighter Gina Carano for his espionage movie HAYWIRE (formerly KNOCKOUT), filmmaker Steven Soderbergh obviously thought she might be the Next Big Thing.

It's just taking a really long time before the rest of us get to decide for ourselves. The movie was initially planned for release earlier this year, but a distributor switch led to some delays... which knocked the flick back to next January.

In the meantime, here's a good look at the lovely knuckle-sandwich dispenser (and former American Gladiator and videogame sniper) in action. The movie also features Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, Antonio Banderas, Bill Paxton, Michael Douglas and Michael Angarano, some of whom will very likely get severely beaten.

In HAYWIRE, "an electrifying tale of espionage and betrayal, a female covert ops specialist (Carano), who works in the deadly world of international operatives, strikes back after discovering she’s been double-crossed by someone close to her in the agency."

Extra Tidbit: Soderbergh's all-star virus thriller CONTAGION, filmed after HAYWIRE, will actually hit theaters first -- it's scheduled for September 9th.

I like Steve. But hasn't this premise/plot been done to death? It's such a cliche now. I mean after "Ghost Protocol" I would like to see something new being done...

Well, Soderberg knows how to handle big casts, but with this new gal in the lead, I'll have to see. I'm typically against those who have very little to no acting experience taking the reigns, especially when they are up against more seasoned actors. There are, however, exceptions to this.

one of the weirdest casting I ever heard off... some gems mixed with some douches, plus Soderbergh has done amazing films and really crappy snob ones...

Gina for WonderWoman! If she can act, that it, but she must if Soderbergh has her lead the film. Hope she kills of that Tatum guy real quick in this film. I would be surprised if even Soderbergh can get any decent acting out of him.
