Haywire is a 2011 American action thriller film directed by Steven Soderbergh, starring Gina Carano, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Bill Paxton, Channing Tatum, Antonio Banderas, and Michael Douglas. Carano, a mixed martial arts fighter, performs her own stunts in the film. The score is by Northern Irish DJ and composer David Holmes.
Carano is cast as Mallory Kane, an operative who works for a company that handles sensitive "black operations" covertly so that the government can maintain plausible deniability. In the film, the firm is hired to rescue a hostage in Spain, an operation which goes well. Then she is hired to pose as the wife of a British MI6 agent, but this is a ruse and she is actually being set up for assassination; Spain and the assassination plot turn out to be connected, and Kane has to unravel the complicated conspiracy against her.
