In an already narrow playing field of female actors who play characters as tough as their male counterparts, Gina Carano is just about the only one who’s tougher than most of them. In Steven Soderbergh's new film "Haywire," the former mixed martial arts star not only holds her own against the acting talents of Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor and Antonio Banderas (among others), but she also convincingly beats them all to a bloody pulp.
Carano plays Mallory Kane, a freelance operative who must fight her way to freedom after she’s betrayed by the people who hired her. Conversely, Carano indicated that the experience of shooting her first film was a great collaborative experience. She recently explained to us how her previous career has helped guide her through a whole new one. Get More »
Steven Soderbergh's brand new high octane spy thriller "Haywire" is set to arrive in theaters on Jan. 20 and, just in case you've somehow forgotten why you should be totally jazzed for it, we've prepared a helpful reminder for you — and it involves free copies of both "Ocean's Eleven" and "Traffic" on DVD.
Now is that reason enough to go "Haywire," or what? Get More »
Steven Soderbergh is starting to bear a striking resemblance to the Energizer bunny — this guy just keeps going.
With not one, but two features out in the next six months ("Haywire" on Jan. 20 and "Magic Mike" on June 27), the director du jour is already locking down an all-star cast for his next flick "The Side Effects."
Penned by Soderbergh's frequent collaborator Scott Z. Burns (the scribe behind "The Informant!" and "Contagion"), this psychological thriller will star Blake Lively, Channing Tatum and Jude Law. Umm… is it hot in here or is it us? Get More »
Steven Soderbergh has made some pretty sweet thrillers in his day (see: "Out of Sight") but now he's getting ready to take things to a whole new level -- and he's got not one but three brand new clips from his upcoming blockbuster "Haywire" to prove it.
Lock and load, ladies and gentlemen. Lock and load. Get More »
Would you chose the stripper life over hanging out with Batman?
If you're Adam Rodriguez, apparently you would. The "CSI: Miami" heartthrob, who's about to step strut onto the big screen wearing very little, just revealed that he passed up a role in Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" in order to do so.

UPDATE: Bradley Cooper has dropped out of talks to star in Steven Soderbergh's "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.," according to Deal Central. The "Hangover" star is apparently too busy for spy games as he'll immediately segue into Alex Proyas' epic "Paradise Lost" after wrapping "The Silver Linings Handbook."
So the hunt is on for a new Napoleon Solo. Joel Edgerton is reportedly circling the role of Solo's Russian partner, Ilya Kuryakin, though nothing's been made official.

Since George Clooney ditched Steven Soderbergh's big-screen adaptation of the '60s show "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.," the rumor mill has been churning nonstop with the names of other dapper dudes up for the role. Would it be Joseph Gordon-Levitt? The Gos? What about Alexander Skarsgaard? Get More »
One "CSI: Miami" star won't be a man of mysteries much longer.
Adam Rodriguez is about to appear in Steven Soderbergh's ode to the male full-frontal, "Magic Mike." The film is loosely based on co-star Channing Tatum's days as a male stripper.
Deadline reports that Rodriguez star will show off his moves -- and maybe more -- as an exotic dancer in the movie. A-listers including "True Blood" star Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Olivia Munn and Wendi McLendon-Covey are already attached to the project.
But that's not the only big gig for the guy who appeared in Tyler Perry's "I Can Do Bad All By Myself." Rodriguez has also landed a minor part in the third installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman saga, "The Dark Knight Rises," scheduled for release in 2012.
What that will be, of course, remains a mystery (cue David Caruso removing his sunglasses).
In Steven Soderbergh's "Erin Brokovich," Julia Roberts played one woman trying to fight a corporation poisoning smalltown residents. But what does Soderbergh need to tackle a worldwide pandemic? How about six superstar actors?
In "Contagion," the director employs an all-star cast to deal with the outbreak of one nasty virus that sends a shockwave over the world and stirs massive panic, fear and chaos. Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard, Gwyneth Paltrow, Laurence Fishburne and Jude Law have all gotten their flu shots and are trying to survive in this nail-biting new thriller.

Steven Soderbergh has a request for film fans, internet denizens and citizens of the world at large: Take a deep breath.
Last month, we shared the news that the "Ocean's Eleven" director had taken a jog down to North Carolina to pitch in on the filming of "The Hunger Games." Immediately, speculation that something was terribly amiss reached a fever pitch. Did they bring him in because the movie is a mess? Did they need the help of a more trusted hand than director Gary Ross? Was, in fact, the world as we know it coming to an end?
Now Soderbergh reveals the truth: He was just helping out Ross because they're friends. The end. Get More »
Any connoisseur of fine dining will tell you that you need to balance the savory with the sweet. Which is why we're happy to announce that Steven Soderbergh's upcoming beefcake feast will come with a side of sugar.
Or in other words, according to indieWire, up-and-coming actress Cody Horn has just landed a role in "Magic Mike" opposite the male-stripper trio of Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer and Matthew McConaughey. As Def Leppard would put it, she's got the peaches, they've got the cream. Get More »
