Negotiations broke down.

Haywire (2011)
A fun, fast well cast vehicle for a non-actor but an interesting performer.
Gina Carano holds a commanding presence especially when dealing out the damage the script has been specifically tailored for. She is terse, strong and not much more as an actor but i hope she is given material as strong as this in the future rather than sub par Cynthia Rothrock fare.
A succession of splendid actors are paraded out to be beaten up or deal exposition (the film is almost as interested in the minutiae and politics of hiring mercenaries as in the end result) all tied together with a terrific David Holmes score (that knows exactly when to be silent).
