Comic-Con 2011 : The Raven, Haywire

ComicCon

Following up the big “Tintin” panel, Relativity showed off two of their most promising releases of the next year – the long-awaited “Haywire” starring MMA fighter Gina Carrano and directed by Steven Soderbergh, and also “The Raven”, with John Cusack playing Edgar Allen Poe.

Haywire

The presentation kicked off with the all-new trailer for “Haywire” which looks, honestly, like a fun ‘popcorn’ action-movie – surprising, some may some, for Soderbergh.

The film footage that followed a bit later featured Michael Fassbender and Carrano posing as a billionaire couple; he betrays her and they slog it out for a good 3-4 minutes.

Carrano, Soderbergh and Channing Tatum sit on the Panel.

  • Soderbergh wanted to do a female action movie in which the actress did all her own fights and stunts. Tatum said she knocked someone out for real in rehearsals.
  • Carrano says she loved doing the action sequences, but did develop an interest in performing as a result of working with Soderbergh
  • Soderbergh says, despite what Matt Damon says, he’s not retiring yet

Looks like a fun movie! great cast!

The Raven


James McTiegue’s flick; Cusack as Poe.

Like “Haywire”, the presentation begins with the film’s trailer.

  • McTiegue says the film takes place in the last 5 days of Poe’s life
  • Film shot in Eastern Europe so it looked gothic
  • Alice Eve joked about being covered in dirt.. for her big burial scene

Like “Haywire”, it probably won’t do big business but looks like it’ll be a good film.
