Blu-ray’s About to Go ‘Haywire’ This Spring!

I think Gerard Iribe just filled the cup with today’s announcement here.  Get your adrenaline pumping as Lionsgate releases the action-packed thrill ride Haywire on Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital Copy), DVD, Digital Download and On Demand this spring, May 1st.  This non-stop adventure, directed by Oscar® winner Steven Soderbergh* and written by Lem Dobbs, introduces mixed martial arts (MMA) superstar Gina Carano as Mallory Kane, a black-ops agent for a government security contractor.  Backed by an all-star cast of Golden Globe® nominees Ewan McGregor**, Antonio Banderas***, Bill Paxton**** and Michael Fassbender*****, Oscar® and Golden Globe® winner Michael Douglas****** and Channing Tatum (GI Joe: Rise of the Cobra), watch the story of assassins, betrayal and revenge twist and unfold. Blu-ray and DVD special features include a behind-the-scenes featurette exploring Carano’s transition from the MMA world to film, and a look at the men of Haywire.

Mallory is a highly trained government operative who works in the dirtiest, most dangerous corners of the world.  After successfully freeing a Chinese journalist who was being held hostage, she is double crossed and left for dead by someone close to her in her own agency.  Instantly 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.
