Angarano Joins Soderbergh’s “Knockout”

Michael Angarano (“Forbidden Kingdom,” “Lords of Dogtown”) is in negotiations to join “Knockout”, Steven Soderbergh’s revenge spy movie with an all-star cast for Relativity says The Hollywood Reporter.

Lem Dobbs’s script centers on a spy (mixed martial artist Gina Carano) who works for a Blackwater-style security contractor and is betrayed by one of her teammates.

Angarano plays a teen who sees Carano in trouble and decides to help, unwittingly ending up as her partner.

Michael Douglas, Michael Fassbender, Channing Tatum, Antonio Banderas, Ewan McGregor and Dennis Quaid also star in the $25 million production which begins shooting next month in Spain and Ireland.
