Perhaps we're not quite as excited for this film as E! Online writer Ted Casablanca, whose breathless reports about the picture are kind of amusing (even straight guys didn't write this breathlessly about, say, "Showgirls," did they?), but two Steven Soderbergh films in one year ain't too bad. The first one of 2012 arrives in January, Gina Carano's action thriller "Haywire." The picture also co-stars Channing Tatum, who's directly responsible for Soderbergh's second film of next year, the stripper film "Magic Mike." Based on Tatum's experiences as a male stripper in his pre-fame days, the actor pitched it to the filmmaker a few months after "Haywire" wrapped and the Academy Award-winning director was intrigued by the prospect of a film milleu he'd never really seen onscreen before.

Joe Manganiello Reveals Character Costumes For Some Of The Strippers In The MovieSteven Soderbergh and Warner Bros. have had a long and mostly fruitful relationship for much of the director's career. Of course, right now they are doing very well with "Contagion," which as taken in over $75 million so far, and that's with international territories only starting to open now. And over the years WB has housed variety of Soderbergh's films both big and small, including the "Ocean's Eleven" trilogy, "The Good German" and "The Informant!" and they are also behind the developing "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." And with lensing well underway on the indie-financed, low-budget male stripper pic "Magic Mike," it looks like the suits over at the studio are willing to roll the dice on the movie that was initially perceived as a hard sell for major shingles.

With Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy benefiting from the success of the R-rated chick flick, Wendi McLendon-Covey (aka Rita) is the latest to cash in her chips. She's already landed a role in next spring's "What To Expect When You're Expecting" and now, in a move that would make Rita happy, she's getting ready to surround herself with man meat.
