Gina Carano – Knockout: In Cinemas Sometime In 2011
Plot: “A black ops super soldier seeks payback after she is betrayed and set up during a mission.”
Gina Carano will be surrounded by an all-star cast which includes Ewan McGregor, Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas, Michael Fassbender and Channing Tatum, for her first starring role.
At the helm is Steven Soderbergh, the oscar winning director of films like ‘Traffic’, ‘Erin Brockovich’ and the Oceans 11-13 series, and that gives some hope that this spy-thriller could be the most credible and stylish film featuring an MMA star to date.
I’m curious to see how this one turns out. Carano certainly has the looks and natural charm to be a movie star, but she has always been camera-shy outside of the cage so it will be interesting to see if she can make an impact as an actress on the big screen.
This one is still in production so there’s no trailer as yet. Instead you’ll have to make do with a fleeting glimpse of Carano on set in Dublin getting chased by a SWAT team.
