Gina Carano's HAYWIRE gets a new release date

January 20, 2012. For anyone who doesn't know, that is a bad sign. January through March is pretty much the dumping grounds with studios for films they don't expect to do well at all, with January being the worst date. Given the 6 month release date shift (from a prime August date), this is pretty much an indicator that this one is gonna be rough.  The original distributor dropping it is also a very bad sign.

Steven Soderbergh's upcoming action-thriller starring MMA fighter Gina Carano has a new home at Relativity Media and will be dropping in theaters January 20th, 2012. The film features a ridiculous cast alongside Carano of Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, Antonio Banderas, Bill Paxton, Michael Douglas and Michael Angarano. This is not dissimilar to Soderbergh's upcoming outbreak-thriller Contagion which stars Matt Damon, Marion Cotillard, Kate Winslet, Gwyneth Paltrow, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law, Bryan Cranston, John Hawkes and Demetri Martin. You gotta hand it to Soderbergh for at least having a great casting director. Contagion is set for release (in 3D!!) October 21st, 2011. From the sound of things, Haywire will only be in good ol'fashioned 2D.

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).

Hopefully Relativity will allow us to post the awesome Neil Kellerhouse Haywire posters that former distributor Lionsgate made the internet take down a month or so back. Check back soon.

mm bad news

it's a straight to DVD quality movie.

Too long of a wait. Phone Post

 i are disappoint. this is officially the "duke nukem forever" of MMA. the saga continues...

If she hadn't pulled from her fight this might not have happened.

 pics or gtfo


I can't wait to watch this on Netflix instant when I get drunk . Phone Post

TopGrinder - This movie looks horrid. Gina looks like a fat blob in the production photos Phone Post

uhhhh yeah! glad its not just me who noticed that, Gina looks pretty huge in those beach scenes, not good.....

It will suck and I doubt anyone will be surprised. It cant be worse than the one with Bisping and Lashley in it though, lol

either straight to dvd or straight to sci fi network

A lot of times when they throw a bunch of well known actors in a movie its never a good sign,its usually a compensation for a crappy script.

 VaGina Carano!!!!!!

The only way I'd be excited about this is if they released some "Jessica Biel in Powder Blue Surprise" type news............then I'd be lined up and ready to watch.

ThatsWhatHeSaid - It's nothing special, she's basically the female version of a Jason Statham movie.

It might be the first action movie with a fat middle aged white woman as the main character.

based on the pictures of the retakes, her getting fat didn't help this movie a bit.

I'll concede the range of 'middle aged' might be up for discussion, but there's no denying she is fat.

Humphrey - based on the pictures of the retakes, her getting fat didn't help this movie a bit.

 I agree. She was caught off guard because the film had supposedly wrapped severl months before.
The studio had some extra money and they decided to change the ending thus the reason for the re-shoots.
I don't really fault her for that. It's not like she was obese lol 

Is the studio mad/upset with her? Are they considering scrapping the scene because with the extra weight she looks different than in the rest of the movie?
