A crop of some pretty amazing concept posters and other art from Steven Soderbergh's forthcoming "Haywire" has hit and they're pretty damn great. Featuring an all-star cast including Michael Fassbender, Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Bill Paxton, Michael Angarano, Matthieu Kassovitz and Antonio Banderas, the picture is a gritty spy thriller written by Lem Dobbs (”The Limey”) and stars MMA fighter Gina Carano as a black ops soldier on a mission of revenge after she’s double crossed by one of her teammates. And while we have yet to see the film, the artwork at least points to something a bit more artful than your standard actioner like say, "Colombiana."
The Gina Carano fansite where these all cropped up suggests that this looks to be the work of designer Neil Kellerhouse and that's not a bad guess at all as we were told last year he would be doing work on the film (he also designed the poster for "The Girlfriend Experience").
Though not yet firmly set, we've been told the film is now eyeing an August date (Soderbergh recently corroborated by saying the film comes out "this summer"), marking the first of two punches from Soderbergh this year, with his virus thriller "Contagion" coming in October. Check out the pics below.
