His films range from a remake of the popular rat pack vehicle "Ocean’s Eleven" to the multi-part biopic “Che” to his experimental film "Scizopolis." On Friday his latest risky endeavor, "Haywire," hits theaters. Newcomer Gina Carano stars as a mixed martial arts fighter who seeks revenge after being betrayed during a mission.
