'Haywire' movie: Gina Carano busy re-shooting scenes, next fight unclear


Despite Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker's continued optimism (via MMAWeekly) that "Conviction" will return sometime in 2011:

"We’re basically talking to her agent. The agent informed me that there were some re-shoots in her film, she’s got a big premiere coming up, but the door’s always open. When she’s ready to come back, that’s when we want her to come back. I believe in her heart just like these other athletes that go into the movies, even though they have success in the film industry such as Quinton Jackson or Cung Le, like he’s doing right now, and Gina, I saw parts of her movie and it was fantastic, but equal time, you’re still a fighter at heart. I know they want to compete."

Sharing the silver screen with the likes of Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas and Ewan MacGregor, the former face of women's MMA Gina Carano will chop-socky her way onto the big screen in "Haywire" courtesy of director Steven Soderbergh in Spring 2011. But will she get her hands dirty inside the cage one more time before the glitz and glamor of Hollywood take her for good? Or has production wrapped on her mixed martial arts career?
