Steven Soderbergh, one of my favorite directors, is back in the commercial picture. At least, as commercial as Soderbergh gets, anyway. He's set to direct Knockout, which Dark Horizons has described as "action-packed, female spy story in the vein of The Bourne Identity." Huh. It will apparently star Gina Carano, who, unless you routinely watch people get kicked in the mouth for real, you probably don't know. Carano is a Mixed Martial Arts fighter (specializing in Muay Thai) so at least we can be reasonably sure that it'll have some kickass fight scenes. Hopefully not shot in super-saturated film like the dizzying Ocean's 13.

If you're feeling skeptical, at least you can be assured it's coming from a solid pedigree - it's written by Lem Dobbs (The Limey, Dark City). As long as Carano doesn't take any lessons from the unfortunately boring The Girlfriend Experience, we should be fine. Also, according to Variety, Carano will be surrounded by name actors which, for a first-time role, can only be helpful. No word on any other cast yet though, so we'll have to wait to learn who's going to have the pleasure of getting Carano's elbow slammed into their head.
