Gina Carano’s fans can now enjoy the first official trailer of her upcoming movie, Haywire. The movie also stars great names in Hollywood, like Michael Douglas and Antonio Banderas.
For fighter Gina Carano, Haywire is her big screen debut. The movie has a heavy Hollywood cast, which includes Michael Douglas Antonio Banderas, Ewan McGregor, Bill Paxton and Channing Tatum. The story is about a freelance agent named Mallory Kane (played by Carano) who is double-crossed by her handlers. When she finds out that she has been set up, the whole mission blows up. This starts up a race to an international hunt down. Mallory tries to return to the United States in order to protect her family and get her revenge.
The movie career interrupted Gina Carano’s fighting career. Before 2009, the mixed martial arts fighter was one of the most famous faces in MMA, known for being undefeated. But in 2009, the 29-year-old fighter-turned-actress lost to Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos, thus ending her line of undefeated run in her career. Since then, there was only one fight set up this year in April. Carano had to challenge Sarah D’Alielo. However, despite the high expectations of the fans and the clearance given by Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, the Strikeforce show which had to take place in Houston was cancelled. Gina Carano’s doctor did not give her the green light and did not share the reasons.
Gina Carano, 29, had other movie appearances before. She starred in the film Ring Girls, based on the true story of five American women going to Vegas and fighting the most famous female fighters in the world. Carano also appeared in the reality show Fight Girls, on NBC’s American Gladiators and in Michael Jai White’s film, Blood and Bone.
Haywire was written by Lem Dobbs and directed by Steven Soderbergh. The movie is due to hit theaters in January 2012.
