We first brought you news close on a year ago of Steven Soderbergh’s action film “Haywire”, starring Mixed Martial Arts star Gino Carano as a double-crossed covert agent looking for revenge and trying to protect her family.

Given that the film boasts a cast list including  Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Michael Angarano, Matthieu Kassovitz, Channing Tatum, Bill Paxton and Antonio Banderas, it should be great and frankly, if Soderbergh can get the quality of his output back up to Out of Sight/Erin Brockovich/Traffic/Ocean’s Eleven then we might get something truly special.

The production and release schedule on this film seems to have slipped more than a little, presumably due to Soderbergh prioritising his virus outbreak film, Contagion. Busy guy these days, but then who isn’t? For today though, we have a lovely shot of Carano letting off a few rounds with an Uzi, with a seemingly excessive level of muzzle-flash, but then what do I know? Everything I know, I learnt from the movies.

The US release date for Haywire is now January 2012. No news yet on the UK release, though I’d be surprised if it’s far from then.

Collider, have we told you that we appreciate you?

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
