Soderbergh’s “Haywire” Swaps Distributors

Overture has apparently taken over the North American release of Steven Soderbergh’s spy thriller “Haywire” from Lionsgate reports The Playlist.

The switch is likely due to the film’s producer Ryan Kavanaugh who acquired the financially troubled Overture Films earlier this year. Overture is quickly making a name for itself with “Let Me In” and “Jack Goes Boating” scheduled for release in coming weeks.

The project was scheduled for a January 2011 release, that looks to be out the window with an Easter 2011 release now currently being considered.

Soderbergh is reportedly planning to put six minutes of the film on YouTube soon. The story 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.

The cast includes the likes of Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Bill Paxton, Michael Angarano, Matthieu Kassovitz, Channing Tatum and Antonio Banderas.
