Video: MMA's Gina Carano Starring in Steven Soderbergh Film

Gina Carano is so good looking that watching her compete in mixed martial arts is akin to watching a Hollywood actress dirty up to win an Oscar. Given that, it’s no surprise that Hollywood would eventually come calling for Carano, who’s starring in Oscar-winner Steven Soderbergh‘s upcoming film Haywire. Here’s the IMDB description of the movie, which is being released in January: “A black ops super soldier seeks payback after she is betrayed and set up during a mission.”

OK, not exactly a stretch for Carano. But considering the principals involved in the film, including Soderbergh, Michael Douglas, Ewen McGregor, Bill Paxton and Antonio Banderas, Haywire will probably be better than Barb Wire with Pamela Anderson.
