MICHAEL FASSBENDER AND EWAN MCGREGOR IN STEVEN SODERBERGH'S NEW ACTION MOVIE

Although I don't care much about Michael Douglas nor about martial arts and action movies, I do care a great deal about Michael Fassbender and Ewan McGregor who have just joined mister Douglas and mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano in Steven Soderbergh's new movie "Knockout".

According to "Movieweb" it will be a revenge action-spy thriller following Mallory Kane (Carano), a black ops super soldier, who, double crossed by someone on her own team, seeks to uncover who has set her up to take the fall for a job that goes bad and involves a murder. Douglas will play a government official, Fassbender will portray a member of Carano's special forces team and McGregor will play the owner of a training facility that Carano's character belongs to.

UPDATE: According to "The Playlist" Channing Tatum will play Aaron, a military specialist who is sent in to try and bring Gina Carano's character back into the fold, once it's believed she has gone rogue. Antonio Banderas is in talks to join the cast as well, playing the head of a European Black-ops squad.

  1. I L-O-V-E McGregor. Not as much as James McAvoy, but almost...Well, maybe just as much since he came first!

  2. McGregor is amazing, not just as an actor but as a person as well, too bad all the good guys never get big in Tinsel Town :(

  3. Tell me have you ever noticed that Matthew McConaughey as small arms like a T. Rex? I kid, he looks great.
    You have a great weekend,

  4. This is strange. Three well known male actors in a film where main lead is an unknown un-actress female. Something similar happened before, but always with very popular music/rap stars as lead actors. And those were usually male music stars. But nothing like this...
    I wonder how did the producers sold this to their studio?

  5. Marko, my puzzlement was of identical nature as yours :))

    Romantic, what does Matthew have to do with this news? :))) Matthew McConaughey (the American actor) has been pronounced the owner of Hollywood's best body many times :)

  7. I think she thought that was McConaughey on the left. I'm not a fan of his, btw.

    I will say that is a funny, Zoolanderish picture of McGregor.

  8. possible, although McConaughey is much much bigger than Fassbender when it comes to muscles, but Fassbender is bigger when it comes to acting talent and profound expressiveness.
