Gina Carano in Haywire

Check this out! An "official" photo from the new Steven Soderbergh action film Haywire has hit the web this evening, courtesy of Collider (via The Film Stage). Haywire stars MMA fighter-turned-actress Gina Carano as female covert ops specialist, seen in this photo firing off some rounds. This looks considerably similar to the Bruce Willis Looper first look, so apparently hugely bright muzzle flashes really sell. Haywire has been confirmed for a Comic-Con appearance, so that'll probably be the big reveal before its January 20, 2012 release next year, but maybe we'll get a trailer before. Check out the photo below and click for high-res!

Gina Carano in Steven Soderbergh's Haywire

Haywire is directed by Oscar winning filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, following up The Informant and The Girlfriend Experience, from a script by Lem Dobbs, of Soderbergh's The Limey, as well as Dark City and Kafka. 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. Cast includes: Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Michael Fassbender, Antonio Banderas and Bill Paxton. I hope we get to see more from this soon.

Hot and hot.

Xerxexx on Jul 1, 2011


My Crush is definitely hot... but not in this pic. Gotta be one of the worst "shooting-a-gun" faces ever. I know everyone squints and/or pouts, but this is a terrible angle; well for her anyway.

That face is ridiculous...

Ricardo Marques on Jul 1, 2011


That face is realistic!

Blue Silver on Jul 1, 2011


No that face is NOT realistic - that face is a "tough" face.  Firing a machine gun doesn't do that to your face.  Of course her behavior is almost as bad as Robert DeNiro's when he fired a gun.  Dude totally blinks. 

Harm on Jul 2, 2011


So your saying people dont blink when there firing a gun?.....youve obviously never fired a gun in your life. You flinch like a bitch no matter how much experience you have, the skill is maintaining accuracy while flinching.

Cody W. on Jul 2, 2011


Cody - I TEACH several shooting classes a year.  I've spent a good deal of time with Class 3 (read full auto weapons).  And you're wrtong - If you flinch like a bitch - well then you've aptly described your best practices.  A real shooter , a practiced shooter trains out the flinsh, repetiion, starting with appropiiate caliber weaponry and then building a skill set.  So no - tough faces and, flinching and blinking are NOT acceptable practices.  And NON of those are conducie to accuracy. 

Harm on Jul 2, 2011


Wow please forgive my typos there - I'm on my phone.  woof. 

Harm on Jul 2, 2011


Harm, what part of 'realistic' do you NOT understand? Not everyone shooting a gun makes the same face. I've seen men/women flinch, as well as, puckering their lips (thus, the so-called, tough face), blinking repeatedly, in different combinations; give or take various facial expressions IN film and IN real life. This woman is PLAYING A ROLE. She is not a PRACTICED SHOOTER (clearly, not "practiced" enough!) So, yeah it's a DAMN REALISTIC FACE as I've described above. I sure hope you don't need anymore specific TECHNICAL ANALYSES. By the way, I can TEACH YOU GRAMMAR, PUNCTUATION, AND SENTENCE STRUCTURE. ....Cody, you do GET what I'm saying. Thank you!!

Blue Silver on Jul 2, 2011


 I smell bullshittery all over your "experience" Harm but nothing I can do to prove it. Ive shot guns all my life, My dad and Gpa are both ex navy seals dont fucking talk down to me like I dont what Im saying, hits a nerve. You sound like you dont have a clue what your talking about.....but this is a movie after all, all of this is pretty moot.

Cody W. on Jul 3, 2011


This movie looks and sounds Cool, the second a woman is featured in something her looks are the main issue but thats males for you. I am really looking forward to this and hope she brings it in the acting department.

Cool cast.

Cracky on Jul 1, 2011


Man, what isn't Fassbender in?  Not that I'm complaining, he's quickly become one of my favorite actors.  

Jertown on Jul 1, 2011


He's been getting tips from Natalie Portman.

duane on Jul 1, 2011


There are some cool fight sequences but not much else. I love Gina Carano and I had such high hopes for this. I probably will go see it in the theater just Gina's in it.

diamond dawg on Jul 1, 2011


Another MMA athlete? With SODERBERGH no less?  Couture and Rampage must be waiting for this chick in an alley somewhere.

duane on Jul 1, 2011


that sounds darkly ominous 😉

Harm on Jul 2, 2011


Great cast! 

whatafy on Jul 2, 2011


Harm so the tightening or flexing of face muscles and the muscles around the eyes to prevent flinching is a no no? contorting the face is often the result of that
