Back in October 2007, I ordered a Muay Thai Ring Girls DVD in the same package as a Preston Sturges boxed set, and pretended to myself that I could here the sound of the gears in Amazon's recommendation engine creaking as it tried to triangulate the implications of such a strange combination.

Fast forward to today and Ring Girls' Gina Carano is starring in Steven Sodbergh's Haywire along with Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, Ewan McGregor, and Michael Fassbender, with Lem Dobbs on screenplay duties.

That would the Lem Dobbs in this extraordinary interview who also penned the upcoming Oscar-bait  The Company You Keep.

(I have seen Haywire by the way, and I thought it was top-notch fun.)
