Traditionally, January is something of a wasteland for the movies; as the last of the awards season pictures roll out, studios tend to use it to dump product that they know won't set the world alight critically or commercially. This year is, for the most part, no exception: dicey prospects like found footage horror "The Devil Inside," long-delayed Katherine Heigl vehicle "One For The Money," unnecessary vampire fourquel "Underworld: Awakening" and a film starring Dolly Parton are among what January has to offer. But there's at least one release coming in the first month of the year that promises something far more potent; "Haywire."

With Steven Soderbergh's next next next film being announced earlier in the week as psychological thriller "The Bitter Pill" his next, "Haywire" (shot before "Contagion," but released after, although still ahead of the just-wrapped "Magic Mike") is getting closer and closer, and the film screened in New York last night to a delighted audience, many of whom were MMA fans.

Whether he's retiring, or taking a hiatus, or whatever, Steven Soderbergh's made it clear in recent months that after his HBO Liberace biopic "Behind the Candelabra," with Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, we're not going to see a film from him for a while. But he's also seemingly keen to fit in as many films as he can into that timeframe, having added male stripper drama "Magic Mike" to his schedule earlier in the year.

After exiting the gestating adaptation of '60's spy series "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." as a result of casting and budgeting, it looks like Steven Soderbergh is wasting no time in finding his replacement with his upcoming sabbatical to still take place after filming the Liberace biopic, "Behind The Candelabra," starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon next summer.

Burns have been developing since early 2010. Soderbergh was in meetings with WB brass this evening in Los Angeles and could not come to an agreement over casting and budgets and decided to part ways on the project.

While his film taste is indiscriminate and eclectic, Steven Soderbergh's taste in collaborators tends to be monogamous. Both George Clooney and Matt Damon and the Oscar-winning director have made six pictures together (and Damon has one more collaboration in the works), Michael Douglas and Benico Del Toro have two films a piece with the filmmaker and one new muse is emerging: Channing Tatum.

The wheels continue to turn on "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." over at Warner Bros. with Bradley Cooper offered the role of American spy Napolean Solo and Joel Edgerton in talks for Ilya Kuryakin, it seems things were moving swimmingly along for the project as it had two leads that made both the director and the studio happy but, alas, one has fallen.

At film festivals, it’s hardly uncommon for a Q&A to get hijacked when an overzealous audience member decides to compliment the filmmakers and then ask an eight-minute question that almost always boils down to “how did you do _____?” But on Sunday night at AFI Fest, none other than the moderator spoiled a post-screening question and answer session, when “The Informant” actor Joel McHale stumbled through a spectacularly awkward and nonsensical conversation with the cast and crew of “Haywire” after Relativity offered the film for a secret screening (read our review here).
