With director Steven Soderbergh’s spy-action pic Haywire opening January 20th, this past weekend I got to sit down with most of the cast to talk about making the movie. Staring MMA fighter Gina Carano as a burned spy who takes revenge against her handlers, Haywire also stars Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Michael Angarano, Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas, and Bill Paxton. I’ve seen Haywire twice now and it’s fantastic. On top of Carano’s star-making performance, the action scenes are some of the best I’ve seen in years. It’s absolutely something you should see in a theater.
During my interview with Tatum we talked about how he got involved in Haywire and what excited him about the project, filming the awesome action scenes, and working with Soderbergh. In addition, with G.I. Joe: Retaliation arriving this summer, I asked what can fans look forward to in the sequel. Hit the jump to watch.
