Knockout – Tatum and Banderas joining Soderbergh’s action film

Posted by LiveFor on January 11, 2010

A few days ago news surfaced that Michael Douglas, Dennis Quaid, Ewan McGregor and Michael Fassbender (“Inglourious Basterds,” “Hunger”) had all joined the cast of Steven Soderbergh’s spy thriller, Knockout. That’s the one that stars Mixed Martial Arts champion Gina Carano in the lead.

Now The Playlist have some more casting news. Channing Tatum (G.I. Joe, Public Enemies, Fighting, Step Up) has joined the as one of the elite specialists on Carano’s team named Aaron — a military gearhead-type who’s sent to try and bring her back in once she’s been double-crossed and gone rogue; trying to figure out who exactly is setting her up. However, this will supposedly be just a small role.
Antonio Banderas (Desperado) is also in talks to join the cast playing the head of a Black-ops European unit.

It also turns out that Dennis Quaid will play Carano’s father.

Long time Soderberg collaborator, David Holmes will be writing the score for the film.

Soderbergh is currently location scouting and will now be primarily shot in Barcelona, Dublin and New Mexico. The picture is set to start shooting in February and Lionsgate hopes to have the film in theaters for August.
This sounds like it could be an excellent action film, full of intrigue, double crossing and lots of fighting. Plus Soderbergh should bring something quite different to the look of an action film.

Definitely one to keep an eye on.
