Relativity Media has released a new UK quad poster for director Steven Soderbergh’s high-tension action thriller Haywire
, starring Gina Carano along with Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, and Channing Tatum.
The film follows a freelance cover operative named Mallory Kane who is betrayed by the CIA on a mission to Barcelona.
Additional cast include Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, Bill Paxton, Michael Angarano, and Mathieu Kassovitz.
Here is what Fassbender had to say about a mistake he made while filming action sequence with mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano, who stars in the film as the special-ops agent everyone in the film wants dead:
“I remember it clearly. She is supposed to pick up a vase and it breaks away, and the stunt guy said, ‘She’s going to grab it and hit you on the side of the head. But the one thing that’s important as she swings toward your head is you don’t look at her. You turn your head away and take the hit.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, I got it.’”
“Of course, Gina picked up the vase and I looked right at it,” Fassbender said. There was no serious injury, just a little blinding pain. “It was like a camera bulb had gone off,” he said.
Haywire, scripted by Lem Dobbs (Dark City), is out on January 20th, 2012. [source: Empire
