Above Joel McHale moderates a panel discussion with Director Steven Soderbergh actors Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender and Gina Carano at the Sunday screening.
The film originally titled “Knockout” was filmed in Dublin, Ireland and northern New Mexico in the Spring of 2010.
“Haywire” also stars Channing Tatum, Michael Angarano, Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas and Bill Paxton.
A dynamic action-thriller, HAYWIRE tells the story of Mallory Kane, a highly trained operative who works for a government security contractor in the dirtiest, most dangerous corners of the world. After successfully freeing a Chinese journalist held hostage, she is double crossed and left for dead by someone close to her in her own agency. Suddenly 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. – AFI

ICYDK: You can’t throw a stone without hitting someone or something tied to NM Film – but don’t.
Like the intricate threads woven throughout classic literature…such as in a Cormac McCarthy novel turned film…like the Coen Bro’s Oscar® winning turn at the McCarthy best selling novel, No Country for Old Men, so is New Mexico woven into the fiber of Global Film…
Garret Dillahunt the lovably daft undersheriff to Tommy Lee Jones in No Country is named as the lead in the New Mexico production of The Boys of Abu Ghriab.
Another No Country star, Woody Harrelson is soon to be seen in the HBO original film Game Change which recently wrapped Northern N. Mex. filming…
The Coen bros put “pen to paper” for the reboot of the 1966 film Gambit, this time out starring Cameron Diaz & Colin Firth now filming in…yes, New Mexico!
The likewise best selling Dean Koontz novel turned highly anticipated NM movie, Odd Thomas is (back) at work this week.
Odd director Stephen Sommers also churned out 2009’s GI Joe which starred Sienna Miller and Channing Tatum…Sienna’s current project, Just Like a Woman is now casting and set to shoot right here in NM.
Tatum’s upcoming New Mexico movie Ten Year is expected to premiere this year…but you never can tell, another GI Joe co-star Rachel Nichols starred in the NM film Bird of the Air (formerly titled The Loop) and we’re still waiting on its release.
This isn’t the first NM term for Odd Thomas star Anton Yelchin, who is back for another run as he was for the soon to be released thriller Fright Night.
Anton’s co-star in Fright, Colin Farrell is too a repeat NM filmer as he previously starred opposite the Oscar® winning Jeff Bridges in…the wholly New Mexico film Crazy Heart.
Bridges also worked in NM…in last year’s True Grit along side Matt Damon who first worked NM waay back in ’99 in All the Pretty Horses a film based on the novel of the same name by…you guessed CORMAC MCCARTHY…
Though this heartthrob’s TWO New Mexico movies have yet to be released, our Golden Tumbleweed Awards are about the work – and boy has done that along with thousands more full & part-time New Mexicans who’ve worked in NM Film, on projects recently wrapped and/or released!
Clearly a favorite as voted and swooned about around town, Channing Tatum takes the top spot, voted favorite temporary New Mexican in this year’s poll.
This pristine beauty may not have taken a golden statue home last night but she handily raked in the most votes as a NM favorite! Hailee Steinfeld comes-in tops just over NM’s perpetual film noir, nay horror queen, young Chloe Moretz – both of whom were but recently, relative unknowns – both of whom are destined for only major greatness in the future.
Thanks for participating in the voting process this year and check-in here to see the local results and last years noms & top vote getters.
UPDATE 2/10/11: A follow-up video just released by our friends at D-House Entertainment featuring Ten Year actor Channing Tatum talking MMA at Jackson’s in Albuquerque. Don’t miss the premiere of The Proving Grounds coming-up next month – in the meantime enjoy:
Gorgeous, temporary New Mexican Rosario Dawson talks to Landon Dyksterhouse of D-House Entertainment about MMA and Jon Jones!
D’Lovely Dawson speaks to what sport fighting can bring to a community and her fascination with it. Ro also lends a big time endorsement/SHOUT OUT to NM’s Own Mash-up King for his upcoming MMA Film THE PROVING GROUNDS.
Next-up is THE AVENGERS, hopefully NOT to be followed by the funeral of all that has become good and holy in the world of New Mexico as the top spot in the country for film making – we all know it’s purdy here, but sunsets alone don’t keep the very mobile, very big business of movie makin’ generating gobs of jobs and joy in NM – KEEP NM FILM!
Catch Tatum this April in another NM Film, Haywire – formerly titled Knockout, with Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas, Ewan McGregor and Gina Carano.
Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall – New Mexico is for Coupling! So much so that Han Solo chose to finally make Ally McBeal his bride here and the pretty birdie now known as Black Swantastic is betrothed AND knocked-up after catching smootches with her on and off screen love interest in the Fe as we brought you here…
Even the mighty Thor himself, who surely danced some New Mexico nights fantastic with his Spanish lady love is now HITCHED!
These aren’t the only A+++ listers getting their lurve on in NM. The sexy duo of Channing and Jenna Dewan-Tatum have loved-it-up in the Fe as well! And they’re back currently filming Ten Year with a whole gaggle of Hollywood hipsters in the Q!
Some escándaloso lovers like Cowboys & Aliens’ Daniel Craig is coming out of the closet as the new love of Rachel Weisz, whose new movie like her new love is said to be New Mexico unBOUND!
“Lorrie Latham will be casting Dear Annie to start production in January and Christina Ortega will be casting Ten Year [in production as of] December 18 (Starring Anna Faris, Channing Tatum, Jamie Linden, Jenna Dewan, Marty Bowen, Reid Carolin, Wyck Godfrey).
Both will be casting through egcasting.com, so please make sure that your profile is up to date.
New Mexico is becoming quite a couples paradise or at least haven as big films and their super stars come to work in the Land of Enchantment their lovers come out to visit.
Some endings are happier than others, but we’re happy to play host and haven to celebrity folk amor!
When Channing Tatum was here in the Spring filming Haywire (formerly titled Knockout) with Steven Soderbergh his lovely wife (Megan Fox isn’t the ONLY game in town, this one and tinsel) Jenna Dewan took to the Indian Market and to Twitter giving an early review of the film(ing) saying:
“Watching Steven Soderbergh on set is beyond…a real genius of his craft. and nice and humble. love it.”
Haywire also stars Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas and Gina Carano, and is due out in early 2011.
The New Mexico shoot of Steven Soderbergh’s Knockout, starring Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas and mixed-martial arts beauty Gina Carano is heading to the old car, loose dog capital of NM which bodes well for the recent casting call for exactly that.
According to the New Mexico Film Office web site the production “is seeking beat up cars and dogs” for this week’s filming…surely that’s is to say, dogs and beat-up cars.
