SDCC11: Teaser Poster and Stills from Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Haywire’

With Soderbergh announcing his plans to retire from directing, fans and admirers of his commercial and personal projects alike should savor his recent  offerings all the more.

The latest, Haywire, features mixed martial-arts star Gina Carano as a highly skilled operative for a state security contractor, “in the dirtiest, most dangerous corners of the world” (my kitchen after chili-night Thursdays). After a successful rescue mission, she’s double-crossed by someone in her agency and made the target of several nasty-sounding assassins. As she struggles to uncover the truth and stay alive, “she devises an ingenious–and dangerous–trap,” and that’s where the haywire comes in.

Joining Carano is a cast that rivals Soderbergh’s Ocean’s 11 films, including Channing Tatum (GI Joe: Rise of the Cobra), Ewan McGregor (the Star Wars prequels), Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class), Antonio Banderas (The Legend of Zorro), Bill Paxton (Big Love), Michael Douglas (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps), and Michael Angarano (Almost Famous).

We’ve got stills and the teaser poster for you under the fold.
