Channing Tatum spoke at the ‘Haywire‘ panel with co-star Gina Carano and director Steven Soderbergh during Comic-Con 2011 and attended the 2nd Annual “From Dusk ‘Til Con” Party with Gina at Stingaree on July 22, 2011 in San Diego, California.
‘Haywire‘ is a dynamic action-thriller directed by Oscar® winner Steven Soderbergh (Traffic) boasts a talented cast that includes Chan, Ewan McGregor (The Ghost Writer), Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class), Antonio Banderas (The Legend of Zoro), Bill Paxton (“Big Love”), Michael Douglas (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps), Michael Angarano (Almost Famous); and introduces mixed martial arts (MMA) superstar Gina Carano as Mallory Kane, in a demanding lead role that has her performing her own high-adrenaline stunts.
Mallory Kane is a highly trained operative who works for a government security contractor in the dirtiest, most dangerous corners of the world. After successfully freeing a Chinese journalist held hostage, she is double crossed and left for dead by someone close to her in her own agency. Suddenly the target of skilled assassins who know her every move, Mallory must find the truth in order to stay alive.
Using her black-ops military training, she devises an ingenious—and dangerous—trap. But when things go haywire, Mallory realizes she’ll be killed in the blink of an eye unless she finds a way to turn the tables on her ruthless adversary.
Chan (who filmed his role in Barcelona, Spain and New Mexico in February and March of 2010) plays one of the elite specialists on Carano’s team. His character is a military gear head-type who’s sent to try and bring her back in once she’s been double-crossed. He told reporters and Comic-Con attendees…
“In the beginning of the movie I have to hit her with a ketchup bottle. [It wasn't hard enough for her] and then she called me the female p-word and I had to do it [for real]. I had to do it for my mannity. So, I hit her and she hit me back twice as hard and that was that.”
