Gina Carano Talks HAYWIRE and WONDER WOMAN

     January 18, 2012


With director Steven Soderbergh’s spy-action pic Haywire opening this weekend, I recently got to speak with most of the cast to talk about making the movie.  Starring 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 Carano we talked about how she went from being an MMA fighter to getting cast in a Soderbergh film, what was the hardest stunt and what made her the most nervous, and deleted scenes. In addition, as some of you may have already seen, after watching Haywire the second time all I could think about was how Carano should play Wonder Woman.  So while I usually start off my interviews asking a karaoke question, with this one, I started with what she thought of Wonder Woman and if anyone had asked her to play the part yet.  Hit the jump to watch.
