Female MMA powerhouse Gina Carano (7-1) took a hiatus from professional competition following her Aug. 2009 loss to Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos. During her time off from fighting women in the cage she has been fighting people like 39-year-old movie star Ewan McGregor in films such as the soon-to-be-released “Haywire”.

“Haywire” is an action flick directed by Steven Soderbergh, who is known for such films as “Ocean’s Eleven”, “Traffic” and “Erin Brokovich”. Along with Carano and McGregor, the “Haywire” cast also includes such well-known actors as Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas, Bill Paxton and Channing Tatum. “Haywire” is scheduled for an April 22 release date.

Carano is expected to make her pro mixed martial arts return for Strikeforce later this year, possibly June. For more photos of Gina on the set, check out
