Haywire at Comic Con 2011

Post by Admin on Sun Jul 03, 2011 8:43 pm

As San Diego Comic Con 2011 approaches - it's set for July 20th to July 25th primarily at the San Diego Convention Center - buzz for the many comic book, books, and movie titles is growing, and that's especially true for a new movie talked about in this space on Saturday: Haywire.

The Stephen Soderberg-directed Haywire stars Mixed martial arts (MMA) superstar Gina Carano alongside a superstar cast with Channing Tatum (GI Joe: Rise of the Cobra), Ewan McGregor (The Ghost Writer), Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class), Antonio Banderas (Desperado), Bill Paxton (Titanic, Aliens), Michael Douglas (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps) and Michael Angarano (Almost Famous).

Wow. That's a cast.

There's little on the film, which is set for release January 20, 2011, but I did manage to uncover this movie clip, below. It has the following story line attached to it:

Haywire Trailer 2011 - Beautiful freelance covert operative Mallory Kane 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.

Here's the clip:

You can tell a lot about Haywire by the photo and the clip. First, it's action, obviously, but also its set in an international venue, and has a lot of scenes that reach for a realistic, militaristic look.

Stay tuned.

Comic-Con 2011: Get the latest news, photos, and more

– 12:15-1:15 The Raven and Haywire – two very different films who share a distributor (Relativity) also share this hour (coincidentally, both will be moderated by yours truly – follow me @Breznican for details.)
Cusack_edger_allan_poe

The Raven stars John Cusack as Poe in a fictionalized thriller in which the gothic scribe is forced to solve a series of serial-killings performed in the style of his horror tales. Co-stars Luke Evans, Alice Eve and director James McTeigue (V For Vendetta) will also be on-hand.

Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire is a spy adventure about a covert ops specialist (MMA star Gina Carano, who does her own stunt-work and screen fighting) kicking ass and taking names after being double-crossed by her agency.

Exclusive Comic-Con Debut: 'Haywire' Poster Premiere!
By: John Halecky on July 21, 2011 at 8:07AM

That's right! Just in time for Comic-Con, the kind folks over at Relativity Films have given us an exclusive poster premiere for Haywire. The film is the latest from acclaimed director, Steven Soderbergh, and stars newcomer and MMA fighting champion Gina Carano.

Director Steven Soderbergh also wanted to provide a personal quote on the Haywire poster and specifically the acclaimed designer Neil Kellerhouse (www.kellerhouse.com). Here’s the quote from Soderbergh...
"When we were working on BUBBLE, I wanted to make sure we came up with a one-sheet that was…well, as odd as the movie. Or as 'distinctive.' Whatever. So I was looking at some of the Criterion Collection dvds which had really striking artwork, and I called Kim Hendrickson and asked who did the design for the titles I thought were particularly cool. She said, oh, those were done by Neil Kellerhouse. So Neil did BUBBLE for us, then THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE and THE INFORMANT!, and in the mean time I turned him on to David Fincher, and Neil did THE SOCIAL NETWORK and is now working on DRAGON TATTOO, in addition to working on HAYWIRE and CONTAGION. Busy guy. The only problem with Neil is that he generates too much good stuff; the images that end up being discarded are often every bit as good as the final choice. Repeatedly I’ve begged the distributor to come up with a way to post Neil’s 'kills' online as a way of rewarding fans of the films and creating chatter and buzz and s$#!. They’ve always said, yeah, yeah, that would be cool, but they’ve never done it. And they won’t unless a lot of you ask them to. So get involved if you want to see more cool stuff from Neil. But until then, check out this teaser for HAYWIRE…"

New Poster for Soderbergh’s Haywire
July 21, 2011 By Jon Lyus

Another poster beams its way out of San Diego and while everyone (including us) is talking about director Steven Soderbergh’s other film for 2011, Contagion, there’s a first look at the poster for his revenge thriller Haywire.

Fandango are ahead of the crowd with the reveal of the poster, which looks striking enough and has a cast list only rivalled by Tomas Alfredson’s Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. An accomplished MMA athlete Gina Carano takes the lead in this film about a government agent who is double crossed and all seven shades of hell break loose.

She is supported by Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Michael Angarano, Matthieu Kassovitz, Channing Tatum, Bill Paxton and Antonio Banderas.

Here’s the poster,

Comic-Con: Haywire Panel: Steven Soderbergh brings the pain

http://www.empireonline.com/news/story.asp?NID=31561

22 July 2011 | Written by James White

Me: I'm going to be cheeky and post the yt link as well, esp. now it's link-only on here! Wink

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=KFV0Uvzpz0o

The panel for Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire certainly brought some important lessons. First among them: do not mess with MMA fighter Gina Carano.

Yes, the trained kick ass-artist proved that she’s got the moves and knows how to use them against such people as Channing Tatum and, in the bruising fight scene that Soderbergh brought to Hall H at Comic-Con, Michael Fassbender. Carano plays Mallory Kane, a female special ops agent who is betrayed by her own people and must go on the run before tracking down those responsible...

Asked about when he first discovered Carano, Soderbergh told the story: “I saw Gina fighting on TV. I Tuned in out of curiosity, and literally thought, ‘why doesn’t someone build a movie around her?’ I’d never seen someone fight like that in a cage! Then two years ago exactly I took the train here to meet her to talk about being in a movie.” After what the Carano described as “an amazing four-hour conversation,” Soderbergh decided he had to try to get something going. So he contacted Lem Dobbs, writer of The Limey, to come up with a “female revenge movie.”

Says the director, “I felt it would be interesting and unusual if we created a female character who performed physically, for real. No doubles, no cutting away. The rule was it had to be real…the result is that the film’s fights are shorter than you’re probably used to seeing in movie. In a realistic fight scene, somebody’s gonna get the drop kick and it’s over.” Although the guys wore a little padding, Soderbergh admits he could tell with Fassbender’s scenes “that those pads weren’t really a lot of help.”

Tatum also took the brunt of Carano’s power. “She actually knocked someone out in rehearsal,” laughs the G.I. Joe star. The silly lad also asked her to kick him harder at one point during their big fight. She obliged. “It was a challenge and I lost.” Talking of challenges, he faced a big one when called upon to hit her with a ketchup bottle at one moment, but couldn’t quite bring himself to go through with it. Carano soon cured him of that. “She called me a female p-word and then I had to do it for my masculinity. But then she hit me twice as hard and I didn’t want to hit her anymore…She pretty much kicked my ass.”

But Carano faced her own challenge, since she’d never acted before. “I just stayed open to it. I had to learn a lot about acting. I got acting 101. It ruined movies for me for a couple of months, but now I appreciate them even more.”

Oh, and last word to Soderbergh, who addressed all the talk about his retirement. Now we know whom to blame! “Matt Damon is apparently as about discreet as a 14-year-old girl… I had this drunken conversation with him in Chicago and four days later it was in the paper. He remembered it verbatim! I was just drunk and going off. It kind of got blown out of proportion there, and it’s Matt’s fault.”

Haywire, which also features Ewan McGregor, Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas, Bill Paxton and Michael Angarano, looks to be a solid action thriller from Soderbergh.

Comic-Con 2011: Michael Fassbender gets violent in Haywire

But he still gets beaten up by a girl

By Josh Winning | Jul 22nd 2011

Footage from Steven Soderbergh’s new action thriller Haywire aired at Comic-Con today, and it packed one hell of a punch.

Literally, because it showed off Gina Carano busting Michael Fassbender's chops as super soldier Mallory Kane.

She’s betrayed by her team, and singled out for assassination. Fassbender’s the hired killer enlisted by Ewan McGregor to terminate Kane.

In the scene shown at the Con, the two go to a hotel room together for what we assume is a romantic rendevous. Once they’re inside, Fassbender makes his move.

That is to say, he attempts to beat Carano into a bloody pulp. Except she’s no wimpy Charlie’s Angels chick, holding her own in the ensuing, brutal action scene; neither party goes easy on the other.

Fass punches Carano, Carano returns the love. The two smash into walls, shatter glass shelves and finally end up in a violent pseudo-sexual clinch on a bed. It’s effortlessly stylish and borderline iconic.

“Each fight was separately special in all the right ways,” says Carano of her many scuffles, which she did without the help of a stunt double.

“Ewan McGregor’s scene, we were on a beach and we were struggling through sand, so that was probably really fun to cut.

“The Fassbender scene was just wreckless, I loved being banged into all that stuff. It was a blast. It was incredible.”


Sound good to you? Do we need more movie heroines? Chuck us your thoughts...

HAYWIRE Comic-Con 2011 Panel

The panel for HAYWIRE at Comic-Con 2011 included director Steven Soderbergh, Gina Carano and Channing Tatum.

Here are some of the highlights from the panel.

- The trailer for the movie was shown (you can watch it here).

- Fun Fact: Steven Soderbergh saw Gina Carano fighting on television and he thoughts why doesn’t somebody do a movie around her. “I never saw someone perform like this in a cage.” -Steven Soderbergh

- Steven Soderbergh thought it would be interesting if you could take a real female actress to do real action scenes without any doubles. And Gina Carano did all her fight scenes in the movie.

- Steven Soderbergh wanted all of it to be real, he didn’t want to do anything that two people wouldn’t actually be able to do.

- The movie starts in the middle of the story, then we get the backstory that led up to the diner in which Gina’s character meets Channing Tatum’s character.

- We were shown a clip featuring a fight between Gina’s character and Michael Fassbender’s character. (Note: If you have ever been frustrated that none of the girls in action movies actually look like they could kick ass, this movie is for you. There is absolutely no doubt that Gina Carano can beat Michael Fassbender, I mean her kicks alone hurt just by looking at them.)

- “I loved getting banged into all that stuff, it was a lot of fun.” -Gina Corano about the clip that was shown.

- Fun Fact: Gina’s character smashes a vase in Michael Fassbender’s face in the clip. He was supposed to look away when it was smashed on his face, but of course he looked right at it and that’s the take they used.

- Gina has a fight scene with Ewan McGregor on the beach which was harder to do because of the sand.

- Channing Tatum was asked about the GI Joe sequel, but unfortunately he was not allowed to say anything about the story.

- Steven Soderbergh’s King of the Hill is currently getting remastered, but he doesn’t know when Universal is going to release it.

- Haywire will be released to theaters on January 20, 2012.

More from Steven Soderbergh on Haywire at Comic-Con; Again Admits to Retirement Plans
Posted 07.26.11 by Ryan

Amongst all the comic book movie fare and genre movies on display at the 2011 Comic-Con, it seemed an odd place for director Steven Soderbergh's upcoming action/thriller Haywire, at least, according to Soderbergh. While Relativity Media would eventually debut the first trailer at Comic-Con, Soderbergh told The Playlist that he wasn't positive the convention was the perfect place to debut the material.

We weren’t sure if it was the right fit. but ultimately we decided, yeah, this is our take on the action film and we should show it off.

Starring MMA fighter Gina Carano as a double-crossed special agent bent on revenge, Soderbergh told The LA Times that he and screenwriter Lem Dobbs fashioned the movie around Carano after seeing her in a televised match. "I’ve never seen someone perform like that, in a cage," said Soderbergh.

The resulting movie had not only Carano perform her own stunts, but also the rest of the movie's cast, which includes well-known actors Michael Douglas, Channing Tatum and Antonio Banderas.

"They [the actors] wore padding, but when Gina was punching Michael [Fassbender] in the ribs [in the trailer], she was really punching him in the ribs," revealed Soderbergh during the Comic-Con panel. The authentic method was an adjustment for Tatum, the actor revealed.

I had to hit her with a ketchup bottle, and I couldn’t do it. She called me the p-word, so then I did it for my "manity." But then she hit me back twice as hard, and I didn’t want to do it anymore.

Haywire may be one of the last chances for audiences to see how Soderbergh tackles the action genre, since the director has been talking (often) of retirement. While Soderbergh had made some recent comments that implied he was backing off of retirement talks, the director talk with The Playlist, where he revealed he still has an exit plan. "I’m still winding down," admitted Soderbergh.

That leaves Soderbergh to work on Magic Mike, a comedy that stars Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer as two male strippers that starts shooting in September; he'll move on to a remake of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. with George Clooney in February. Soderbergh will "finish" his career with the biopic Liberace with Matt Damon and Michael Douglas next summer.

Haywire opens Jan. 20, 2012, and co-stars Michael Angarano and Bill Paxton.

Soderbergh’s Tyranny of Narrative, Haywire at SDCC, Can Carano Hold a Candle to Action Star Jolie?
Thompson on Hollywood

Steven Soderbergh presented footage from Haywire at Comic-Con. It was well-received. In ThePlaylist‘s interview with the director, he admits they weren’t sure if Comic-Con was the right fit for the film, but “ultimately we decided, yeah, this is our take on the action film and we should show it off.” It was a good call, because the movie features an ass-kicking (and hot) female MMA champion, Gina Carano, muscle-boy Channing Tatum and newfound heartthrob and serious thesp Michael Fassbender (Carano and Tatum joined Soderbergh on stage for the panel). Why wouldn’t it play well at Comic-Con?

The footage they shared, while it has impressive stunt-double-free action, is not an indicator of whether the film is actually any good or not. While we are starving for a female-focused action-spy-thriller, just because someone can kick ass doesn’t mean they can act (see Steven Seagal).

At Comic-Con, Carano said: “[Acting] is definitely a skill and not everyone is capable of doing it.” (She said shooting the film was like “Acting 101”). While at the panel, I overheard men disputing Angelina Jolie‘s believability as an action star—“she’s too frail, she can’t act, etc”—and spouting excitement for Carano, who does all her own stunts and has some serious thigh strength, but the fact remains that Jolie is an action star and marquee draw as well. Even train wreck The Tourist had wings because she was in it.

As for Soderbergh’s retirement—“Matt Damon is apparently is about as discreet as a fourteen-year old girl”—he still plans to do it but we need to chill out on marking it in our calendars. He has several other projects he wants to tackle, including Magic Mike, with Tatum as a male-stripper (which “has to be [shot] in September”). Here’s more on Liberace, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and Cleopatra-musical Cleo. Plus;

“I’m still going to be making things, I just may not be making feature films,” he tells ThePlaylist, “I could also make some short film that takes a couple of years to make that doesn’t adhere to any [traditional] marketing film structure,..I’ve said it before, but it would be nice to free myself from the tyranny of narrative. It’s nice to keep trying to surprise yourself and keep your creative senses fresh and on their toes.”

Here’s lots more from the Haywire panel. Relativity is releasing the film January 20, 2012. Here’s the trailer:

Haywire Poster Designed By Criterion Collection Favorite Neil Kellerhouse Hits, Trailer Arrives
By Joshua Brunsting on July 25, 2011, 9:18 pm

Known for the posters for films like The Informant, The Girlfriend Experience and The Social Network, as well as his Criterion Collection artwork for Antichrist, The Thin Red Line, and a cavalcade of others, Neil Kellerhouse is one of the most popular artists around.

Featuring his ever present stark visuals and his linear design, Kellerhouse is the go to guy for those looking for striking promotional material. And his best bud, director Steven Soderbergh, has tapped him to give the world yet another world shatteringly beautiful poster.

Fandango has the first poster for Soderbergh’s upcoming film, Haywire, and it’s gorgeous. The film stars Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, Antonio Banderas, Bill Paxton, Michael Douglas and Michael Angarano, and follows a spy, played by MMA star Gina Carano, who looks to take revenge on those who have double crossed her.

We’ve only seen a few photos from the film, but this poster is definitely something to hold us over. Kellerhouse is a brilliant artist, and this poster is a kick as piece of art proving that very fact. It really gives off this cool vibe that makes me quite intrigued as to what to expect from Soderbergh’s attempt at a spy action/thriller.

Looking for more from Kellerhouse? The Playlist has a great chat with the artist.

In other Haywire news, with Comic-Con in full blast, Relativity has debuted the first trailer for the hotly anticipated film, and I must say, it looks solid. The action here looks really well shot and choreographed, and this cast looks impeccable. Carano as a leaves this writer, and many others, a tad uneasy, but when partnered up with some of today’s best actors and actresses, it remains to be seen just what this MMA figther-turned-thespian can really do. Check out the trailer below, as well as the poster.

Comic-Con: Gia Carano and John Cusack Bring on the Questions
July 23rd, 2011 5:01 PM by Alyssa Caverley

Lots of audience questions at Friday's Relativity panel for John Cusack's The Raven and Gia Carano's Haywire.

Haywire kicked it off with director Steven Soderbergh, and stars Gia Carano and Channing Tatum. The film also stars Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas, Bill Paxton, Ewan McGregor, and Michael Fassbender.

The audience was treated to the first-ever look at the new trailer, which highlights a multi-faceted story, including espionage, character study, father-daughter relationships, and criminal mischief.

The end of the trailer signaled a huge swell of applause from the audience and a ton of questions for the star, MMA star Gia Carano.

Soderbergh told the huge Hall H audience that he was excited to make this film with Carano after seeing her fight on TV. He wanted to built a story around a real fighter - the stunts are real and the fighting is actually happening (choreographed of course) - no stunt people anywhere near them.

For Carano's part, she was eager to take on the role because it was an "adrenaline rush every day."

She also admits transitioning to acting, especially in a starring role, was much harder than she ever expected.

"It's definitely a skill and I don't think everyone's capable of doing it."

The story features a kind of cold-opening. As an audience, we are catapulted right into the middle of the story with a scene featuring Carano and co-star Tatum. The choreography of the fights were extremely detailed to ensure no one got hurt, but Tatum admits, "she kicked my ass."

Soderbergh also brought a special exclusive clip for the audience, featuring a fight scene between Carano and co-star Michael Fassbender. The intense action sequence brought gasps and cheers from the audience throughout as Carano and Fassbender fought in a hotel room - bashing up against cabinets and struggling on the bed.

"Gina kicked all the guys asses," Tatum exclaimed after the clip ended to eager applause from Hall H.

And don't worry MMA fans, Carano is expected to fight again later this year.

Haywire is expected to hit theaters on August 5, 2011.

How to Get Channing Tatum to Smack You in the Face, and More Comic-Con Highlights

Sat., Jul. 23, 2011 8:00 AM PDT by Natalie Finn
Haywire, Channing Tatum Relativity Media
Comic-Con 2011 Tile

Channing Tatum's a pretty brawny guy, in case you hadn't noticed.

And he's also a gentleman, which means being asked to hit a woman—multiple times—in Steven Soderbergh's new ensemble thriller Haywire, gave him pause.

"In the beginning of the movie I have to hit her with a ketchup bottle," Tatum said today durin the Relativity panel at Comic-Con, referring to MMA fighter Gina Carano, who's making her feaure-film debut. "I couldn't do it."

But, of course, he had to do it. So what did his desirable and deadly costar do to break the ice?

"Then she called me the female P-word, and then I had to do it for my manity," he recalled, "so I hit her. Then she hit me back twice as hard, and I didn't want to do it anymore!'

Probably the same went for all the guys—such as Michael Fassbender, who's almost the victim of strangulation-by-thigh—who had to grapple with Carano during the grueling shoot, especially considering she was extra pumped for the fight scenes.

"I think I woke up everyday with a fresh perspective," she said of making the film and going through "Acting 101" with Soderbergh. "It was a crazy adrenaline rush. Every single day I didn't know what to expect...I really liked the physical stuff."

But the experience also "ruined movies for a couple of months for me because I noticed everything...It's definitely a skill and I don't think everyone's capable of doing it—like fighting. I don't know, it was beautiful."

"Each fight was special in all the right ways," Carano said."The Fassbender scene"—which was screened for the panel audience—"was just reckless and I just loved getting banged into all of that stuff. That was a blast."

That was also the moment when a dozen fanboys needed oxygen.

As for one of Tatum's upcoming projects, a GI Joe sequel costarring Dwayne Johnson, the close-shaven star said he was sworn to secrecy.

"I'm not allowed to talk about the story," he said. "Dwayne said he would pop my head off if I said anything. But I love the Rock. He's a gargantuan man and a great actor and I can't wait to act with him."

So, what other Hall H happenings tickled our fancy today?

First trailer for Steven Soderbergh's Haywire drops in

Gina Carano kicks ass

By Matt Maytum | Jul 23rd 2011

The first trailer for Steven Soderbergh's action thriller Haywire has shown up online.

Only hours ago, we were being wowed by footage from the prolific director's latest at Comic-Con.

The movie is bustling with generations of male acting talent, with a cast including (deep breath): Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, Bill Paxton, Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender and Channing Tatum.

Come the end of this footage though, the person who's guaranteed to stick in your mind is MMA star Gina Carano, looking set to break out into the big leagues with this.

Studios often seem keen to secure another Bourne, and it looks like Soderbergh could deliver just that, with sinister agencies, super-trained assassins and frenetic action aplenty.

Check out the trailer immediately:

Soderbergh is always threatening to retire, but on the strength of this promo, we're hoping he can be persuaded to keep going for a few more years.

Haywire is set to open in the US on 20 January 2012. Soderbergh's other new film, Contagion, is due to arrive this October.

Has a new action icon been born? Is Soderbergh the busiest director working today? Air your opinions below!

Comic-Con 2011: Female-Centric Action 'Haywire' Launches Official Trailer

July 23, 2011 04:38:25 GMT

The trailer sees Gina Carano as Mallory Kane, a special ops agent who plans to take revenge on her betrayer and gets involved in multiple scenes of fierce fighting.

Comic-Con 2011: Female-Centric Action 'Haywire' Launches Official Trailer

First official trailer from an upcoming female-driven action film "Haywire" has been premiered during the San Diego Comic Con 2011 on Friday, July 22. The trailer features fierce-looking Gina Carano's Mallory Kane who gets violent in multiple action-packed and fighting scenes.

Developed under Relativity Media and directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, the movie centers on Kane, a highly trained operative who works for a government security contractor in the dirtiest, most dangerous corners of the world. She struggles to protect her family and plans to take revenge after being betrayed during a mission in Barcelona.

Director Soderbergh opened up during the Comic Con panel that he got the idea of creating a female-centric thriller after watching Carano fighting in an MMA match. "You've never seen anyone perform like this... in a cage," he explained.

He then called screenwriter Lem Dobbs to team up with him in writing a screenplay for this film, which also has Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender, Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas and Ewan McGregor in the casting department.

Soderbergh also revealed that during the shooting, Carano Carano did all her fighting scenes on her own without any stunt double. Tatum, who also joined the director at the panel with Carano, added, "They wore padding, but when Gina was punching Michael in the ribs, she was really punching him in the ribs." Carano chimed in, insisting that Tatum actually asked her to kick harder so he was the one who should be blamed.

Tatum also shared that it's a bit hard for him to beat a woman in this film. He said, "I had to hit her with a ketchup bottle and I couldn't do it. She called me the p-word, so then I did it for my 'manity.' But then she hit me back twice as hard, and I didn't want to do it anymore."

Carano added that starring in the film was a "crazy, adrenaline rush." She admitted that she preferred the physical scenes, but she learned acting 101 by working in this film and now she has a greater appreciation of the craft.

Aside from directing the movie, Sodenbergh is also slated as the producer along with Gregory Jacobs and Ryan Kavanaugh. "Haywire" is set to arrive in U.S theaters on January 20, 2012.

Steven Soderbergh’s HAYWIRE Trailer Packs A Punch

It pains me to say this, but watch Michael Fassbender get the crap kicked out of him in this trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s HAYWIRE. Mixed martial arts (MMA) superstar Gina Carano (American Gladiators) makes her feature film debut, starring and performing her own high-adrenaline stunts.

At Friday’s Haywire Comic Con panel, Soderbergh said he discovered Carano when he saw her fight on TV for the 1st time and wondered why no one built a movie around her. There wasn’t even a story in mind when the two first met. Soderbergh said, “I felt it would be fun to watch it be created around her.”

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. The film is produced by Gregory Jacobs (Ocean’s Trilogy) and written by Lem Dobbs (The Limey).

The film’s cast also includes Channing Tatum (GI Joe: Rise of the Cobra), Ewan McGregor (The Ghost Writer), Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class), Antonio Banderas (Desperado), Bill Paxton (Titanic), Michael Douglas (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps) and Michael Angarano (Almost Famous). HAYWIRE will be in theatres January 20, 2012.

Comic-Con 2011 : The Raven, Haywire
Share
by Moviehole Staff (Saturday, July 23rd, 2011 at 4:00 am)

Following up the big “Tintin” panel, Relativity showed off two of their most promising releases of the next year – the long-awaited “Haywire” starring MMA fighter Gina Carrano and directed by Steven Soderbergh, and also “The Raven”, with John Cusack playing Edgar Allen Poe.

Haywire

The presentation kicked off with the all-new trailer for “Haywire” which looks, honestly, like a fun ‘popcorn’ action-movie – surprising, some may some, for Soderbergh.

The film footage that followed a bit later featured Michael Fassbender and Carrano posing as a billionaire couple; he betrays her and they slog it out for a good 3-4 minutes.

Carrano, Soderbergh and Channing Tatum sit on the Panel.

Soderbergh wanted to do a female action movie in which the actress did all her own fights and stunts. Tatum said she knocked someone out for real in rehearsals.
Carrano says she loved doing the action sequences, but did develop an interest in performing as a result of working with Soderbergh
Soderbergh says, despite what Matt Damon says, he’s not retiring yet

Looks like a fun movie! great cast!

Check Out the Action-Packed Trailer for 'Haywire'
By Harley W. Lond (Subscribe to Harley W. Lond's posts)
Posted Jul 22nd 2011 11:00PM

Steven Soderbergh was at Comic-Con on Friday to tout his latest film, the thriller 'Haywire,' which stars mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano as a black ops super soldier who seeks payback after she is set up during a mission and betrayed. The story line is oh-so familiar, but the difference here is that the killer seeking retribution is a female.

Yesterday at Comic-Con, Soderbergh also clarified that he does not plan on retiring, saying that those original rumors had spread thanks to Matt Damon reiterating a drunk conversation they once had.

Soderbergh's next film, 'Contagion,' comes out in September. It's an action thriller that centers on the threat posed by a deadly disease and an international team of doctors contracted by the CDC to deal with the outbreak. He also has three more movies in various stages of production: 'Liberace,' 'Magic Mike' and 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' 'Haywire,' which counts among its ensemble cast Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas and Bill Paxton, will open January 20, 2012.

Now if someone would just team Carano with Cynthia Rothrock.

Comic-Con: Haywire Panel
Steven Soderbergh brings the pain

22 July 2011 | Written by James White

The panel for Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire certainly brought some important lessons. First among them: do not mess with MMA fighter Gina Carano.

Yes, the trained kick ass-artist proved that she’s got the moves and knows how to use them against such people as Channing Tatum and, in the bruising fight scene that Soderbergh brought to Hall H at Comic-Con, Michael Fassbender. Carano plays Mallory Kane, a female special ops agent who is betrayed by her own people and must go on the run before tracking down those responsible...

Asked about when he first discovered Carano, Soderbergh told the story: “I saw Gina fighting on TV. I Tuned in out of curiosity, and literally thought, ‘why doesn’t someone build a movie around her?’ I’d never seen someone fight like that in a cage! Then two years ago exactly I took the train here to meet her to talk about being in a movie.” After what the Carano described as “an amazing four-hour conversation,” Soderbergh decided he had to try to get something going. So he contacted Lem Dobbs, writer of The Limey, to come up with a “female revenge movie.”

Says the director, “I felt it would be interesting and unusual if we created a female character who performed physically, for real. No doubles, no cutting away. The rule was it had to be real…the result is that the film’s fights are shorter than you’re probably used to seeing in movie. In a realistic fight scene, somebody’s gonna get the drop kick and it’s over.” Although the guys wore a little padding, Soderbergh admits he could tell with Fassbender’s scenes “that those pads weren’t really a lot of help.”

Tatum also took the brunt of Carano’s power. “She actually knocked someone out in rehearsal,” laughs the G.I. Joe star. The silly lad also asked her to kick him harder at one point during their big fight. She obliged. “It was a challenge and I lost.” Talking of challenges, he faced a big one when called upon to hit her with a ketchup bottle at one moment, but couldn’t quite bring himself to go through with it. Carano soon cured him of that. “She called me a female p-word and then I had to do it for my masculinity. But then she hit me twice as hard and I didn’t want to hit her anymore…She pretty much kicked my ass.”

But Carano faced her own challenge, since she’d never acted before. “I just stayed open to it. I had to learn a lot about acting. I got acting 101. It ruined movies for me for a couple of months, but now I appreciate them even more.”

Oh, and last word to Soderbergh, who addressed all the talk about his retirement. Now we know whom to blame! “Matt Damon is apparently as about discreet as a 14-year-old girl… I had this drunken conversation with him in Chicago and four days later it was in the paper. He remembered it verbatim! I was just drunk and going off. It kind of got blown out of proportion there, and it’s Matt’s fault.”

Haywire, which also features Ewan McGregor, Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas, Bill Paxton and Michael Angarano, looks to be a solid action thriller from Soderbergh.

Haywire Trailer & Comic-Con Panel: Soderbergh Does Female Bourne

Posted on Friday, July 22nd, 2011 by Devindra Hardawar

While we’re all very excited for Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion, the prolific director has also had an action spy film, Haywire (formerly known as Knockout), sitting in the wings for a while. Today at Comic-Con, Soderbergh hit the stage to premiere the film’s trailer and chat with MMA fighter Gina Carano, the star and inspiration of the film.

Judging from the trailer and clip shown at the panel, Haywire mostly appears to be an excuse for Soderbergh to make a hard-hitting action film. Carano’s fighting talents were on full display — especially in a drawn out fight scene with co-star Michael Fassbender – but she seems to be less adept at dialog or other scenes not involving elbows to the face.

Take a look at the trailer below and judge for yourself.

Haywire’s all-star cast includes Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, Antonio Banderas, Bill Paxton, Michael Douglas and Michael Angarano. So even if Carano — a first-time actress — can’t manage a good performance, we’ll at least have a few stronger actors to round things out.

Carano stars as a covert ops specialist who is betrayed by the people she works for (when has that ever happened in a spy film?!). During the panel, she and Soderbergh couldn’t really muster up much enthusiasm for the film. But the Comic-Con audience warmed up to it once they played the extended Fassbender fight sequence, which involve Carano and young Magneto tussling in, and ultimately destroying, a swank hotel room.

Basically, it looks like a gorgeously shot and realistic action film — exactly the sort of thing you’d expect from Soderbergh spy movie. But I’m hoping Carano’s acting manages to distract too much, and that the film manages to give us more than just a generic spy plot. Haywire hits theaters in January 2012.

Steven Soderbergh Says Matt Damon Is A “14-Year-Old Girl” For Blowing Up His Retirement Spot
Comic-Con ‘11: Soderbergh, Gina Carano & Channing Tatum Talk ‘Haywire’


Director Steven Soderbergh‘s motivation for centering an action film around a female Mixed Martial Arts champion with no real acting experience was simple.

“I saw Gina fighting on television. Remember when CBS was running MMA fights on Saturday? I turned it on one time and thought, ‘why doesn’t someone build a movie around her?’ ” Soderbergh said of Gina Carano, the lead of his new spy thriller “Haywire.” “I’ve never seen someone like her fight – in a cage.” Soderbergh quickly sought out the fighter, pitched her the idea and then called up his old screenwriter friend and DVD-commentary sparing partner Lem Dobbs, who had written “The Limey” and “Kafka,” to pen the script.

One of the elements the Academy Award-winning director of “Traffic” wanted to emphasize was real fighting with very little tricks. “They wore padding, but when Gina was punching Michael [Fassbender] in the ribs, she was really punching him in the ribs,” he said.

Co-star Channing Tatum was just one of the many men in the film who took a beating at the hands of the MMA-fighter-turned-actress. “I had to hit her with a ketchup bottle, and I couldn’t do it. She called me the p-word, so then I did it for my ‘manity,’ ” he laughed. “But then she hit me back twice as hard, and I didn’t want to do it anymore.”


Two sequences were shown to the Comic-Con crowd. The trailer, which you saw earlier today, and a brutal and matter-of-fact fight sequence between Carano and Fassbender—note a major spoiler was shown, so careful what you read out there.

Eschewing the conventional wisdom of quickly clipped and disorienting ‘Bourne’ style fight sequences, this brawl between the two actors was extremely grounded, mapping out a plain-in-sight geography that put the focus on pure and grueling mano y mano combat.

Featuring no music and no sound other than grunting, the smashing of fists on flesh and the breaking of glass and furniture, the sequence is a bold statement flying straight against the grain of modern action sequences. So strangely centered that while watching you almost forget to breathe; this is no frills, punishing stuff.

While there’s yet to be a taste of David Holmes’ score—said to be out there, Lalo Schifrin-like and full of brass—his take on “Haywire” should whet the appetite for fans of action films that do not use vertiginous editing to hide the ferocious, and at times uncomfortable, pounding of flesh.

“Mallory Kane is special ops and she just gets the job done and people want to work with her,” the director said of Carano’s protagonist character. “She’s a private contractor and she’s… a professional doing her job, and I think she definitely believes in what she does because her father was in the military as well, so it’s in her blood.”

Soderbergh noted that the film plays with narrative at times. “It’s kind of a cold open, we kind of parachute into the beginning of the story,” he said. “At a certain point, the story catches up…the second half of the film plays out in real time. I love spy movies and we tried to be really accurate about this world…we had a couple of consultants who worked with us to a make sure that everything we were doing was factually accurate.”

“The fights are probably shorter than you’re used to seeing in movies because at a certain point, someone is going to get the drop on the other one and it’s going to be over.” the director said, noting Dobbs was inspired by ‘60s movies featuring Rod Taylor kicking ass in a suit and tie in the middle of a four-star hotel.

In related Soderbergh news. The filmmaker says a DVD re-release of his depression-era 1993 film, “King of the Hill,” is ready to go, but it all depends on the studio who owns it. “I’m hoping that all studios eventually adopt the system that Warner has,” he said of the celebrated Warner Archive. “I don’t know when Universal is going to release it, I just know that I had to look at the remaster and now it’s sitting there.”

As for all that retirement talk? Well, it’s real, but Soderbergh blames it on Jason Bourne. “Matt Damon is apparently about as discreet as a fourteen-year-old girl,” Soderbergh quipped to much laughter. “I had this drunken conversation with him…and that’s how all this started…It kinda got a little bit blown out of proportion there and it’s Matt’s fault.” - Reporting by Kimber Meyers & RP.

Haywire Trailer Debuts at Comic-Con; Steven Soderbergh Says Retirement Talk Blown Out of Proportion
Posted 07.22.11 by Chris

At Comic-Con, unless there's a comic book superhero or a teen vampire/werewolf heartthrob, your movie can get lost in the shuffle. The exception is made for a spy flick directed by the Steven Soderbergh.

Relativity Media introduced the trailer for Haywire, starring mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano. The story follows Mallory Kane (Carano), a freelance covert operative who's betrayed on a mission in Barcelona and must fight her way back to the States to protect her family and track down those who double-crossed her. The cast includes Michael Douglas, Bill Paxton, Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender, Michael Angarano, and Antonio Banderas.

Soderbergh isn't hanging up his director's hat, as previously reported. At the Hall H presentation, Soderbergh addressed stories about his supposed retirement.

Matt Damon is about as discrete as a 14-year-old girl. I had this drunken conversation with him in Chicago shooting Contagion... was just sort of going off. In this economy, no one wants to hear about someone quitting a good job. It got blown out of proportion. That's Matt’s fault!

With Haywire showing Soderbergh hasn't lost his touch, we're glad to hear he's sticking with his day job. Haywire opens Jan. 20, 2012.

Comic-Con: Relativity’s Haywire Panel with Ass-Kicking Carano, Soderbergh Disses Retirement Rumors
Thompson on Hollywood

Haywire star Gina Carano can clearly kick ass, judging from the trailer and clip Relativity shared this afternoon in Hall H. Director Steven Soderbergh and co-stars Channing Tatum and Michael Fassbender can all corroborate (Soderbergh, Carano and Tatum were at the panel; the film also stars Ewan McGregor, Antonio Banderas, Bill Paxton, Michael Douglas and Michael Angarano). Here’s more project details; synopsis and panel quotes are also below, along with Soderbergh’s response to those pesky retirement rumors.

Soderbergh discovered Carano watching her MMA fights on TV. He thought, “why didn’t someone build a movie around her?” He decided to do it himself. Carano picked him up from the train station with a black eye, and at the end of what Carano calls “an amazing four hour conversation” with Soderbergh told her “it’s either going to happen really fast or it’s not going to happen at all.” After that it came together very quickly.

Lem Dobbs wrote the screenplay, which Soderbergh piqued his interest in doing by calling it “a female revenge movie.” Hatching the story was then a collaborative process that included Soderbergh and Carano. They premiered the trailer (below) to a very impressed crowd. Carano has fans, and she’ll have plenty more after this. It’s not clear what level her acting chops are, but anyone who can kick Fassbender and Tatum’s asses while looking hot will earn respect.

“I felt it would be interesting and unusual if [we] created a female character who performed physically, for real. No doubles, no cutting away,” says Soderbergh. They all did their own stunts in very detailed choreography. Soderbergh says he’s never done fights like this before, but says:“The rule was it had to be real…the result is that [the film’s] fights are shorter than you’re probably used to seeing in movies…[in a realistic fight scene] somebody’s gonna get the drop kick and it’s over.” Although the guys wore a little padding, Soderbergh admits he could tell with Fassbender’s scenes that; “those pads weren’t really a lot of help.”

“She actually knocked someone out in rehearsal,” says Tatum. He asked her to hit him harder at one point: “It was a challenge and I lost.” He was inspired during the shoot: “It’s always a pleasure to work with people who commit like [she did].” Considering the ‘nice guys don’t hit girls’ rule, when Tatum needed to hit Carano with a ketchup bottle in the opening scene, he didn’t want to. But then, he says: “she called me a female p-word and then I had to do it for my manity,..But then she hit me twice as hard and I didn’t want to hit her anymore…She pretty much kicked my ass.”

Carano says shooting was “a crazy adrenalin rush every day.” She adds: “I had to learn a lot about acting. It was like Acting 101. It actually ruined movies for a couple months for me, but now I appreciate them even more. [Acting] is definitely a skill and not everyone is capable of doing it.” Carano loved the physicality of shooting the film: “I just loved getting banged into all that stuff, that was a blast.” The audience ate that up.

SPOILER ALERT: Soderbergh says Carano really “killed Michael Fassbender for real” in the film’s hotel room scene (which they showed). After getting his ass kicked, “he laughed about it,..a little,” says Soderbergh. Lets just say shooting the scene didn’t go well for Fassbender, nor does it end well for him in the film.

Now, about those rumors that Steven Soderbergh is retiring, he says, “Matt Damon is apparently as about discreet at a fourteen-year old girl,..I had this drunked conversation with him in Chicago and four days later it was in the paper,..He remembered it verbatim,..I was just [drunk and] going off…it kind of got blown out of proportion there, and its’ Matt’s fault.”

SYNOPSIS: Mallory Kane is a highly trained operative who works for a government security contractor in the dirtiest, most dangerous corners of the world. After successfully freeing a Chinese journalist held hostage, she is double-crossed and left for dead by someone close to her in her own agency. Suddenly the target of skilled assassins who know her every move, Mallory must find the truth in order to stay alive.

Using her black-ops military training, she devises an ingenious—and dangerous—trap. But when things go haywire, Mallory realizes she’ll be killed in the blink of an eye unless she finds a way to turn the tables on her ruthless adversary.
