Steven Soderbergh will direct Knockout as his next film. Described as an action thriller in the James Bond mold, the film will star MMA fighter-turned-actress Gina Carano as a woman from the wrong side of the streets and possessing superior brawling abilities who is recruited to serve as an international spy. Soderbergh plans on shooting the film around the world in various exotic locales.
The script was penned by Lem Dobbs who worked with the director before on The Limey and Kafka. Relativity Media is financing the film and wSoderberg isn't getting paid from the company upfront; instead he's taken an ownership stake in the hopeful box office success of the movie.
Filming is scheduled to commence in January 2010. [Full story]- Variety. Comment on this Scoop (0)
