Haywire... a.k.a. Bourne Identity/Salt/Minority Report


Ya know what hasn't been done in a looooong time? A secret ops/FBI/manhunt/action/spy/agents-on-the-run type of movie. So original. Well, here comes another one... not that you require it, but here's the synopsis:

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.

Coming in 2011, this flick will star Michael Douglas, Ewan McGregor, Channing Tatum, Antonio Banderas and Bill Paxton. I gotta say, it's a pretty suweeeet cast, and although it's soooo been done, this might actually be good. But hey, I don't exactly have the most discerning taste.

Gina Carano plays Mallory Kane (ooooh what an intense name... scoff). Gina has done some acting but also has some Muay Thai fighting and Cage Fighting fame. I'm not sure how she fits in with this amazing cast, but meh. We'll see!

Gina Carano has never done Playboy, only Maxim and after Muay Thai Kickboxing she became a top ranked Cage Fighter.

I dont expect much from her acting-wise but I've heard the action scenes are top notch. You won't see obscured , frenetic camera work, long range covered up stuntmen shots (Bourne, Salt etc..) in her fight scenes.

Thanks 'Anonymous'...

It's been corrected as the source proved to be inaccurate.
