The scene starts with Carano’s character, Mallory Kane, entering a diner, where Tatum’s character soon meets her. They talk for a while, and then Tatum’s character orders a cup of coffee. When he gets his black coffee, he throws in right in her face, and then smashes the cup on her head.
The fighting explodes as Carano shows off some pretty fiery moves, and gets a little help from a random waitress in taking Tatum’s character down.
Tatum and Soderbergh also worked together in the upcoming stripper movie, Magic Mike, which is inspired by Tatum's experiences working as a stripper before his acting career took off.
Haywire, which marks Soderbergh’s 25th feature film within 22 years, follows covert operative Mallory Kane who, after a mission goes awry, finds she has been double crossed, and will need to use her skills to protect herself and exact revenge on those that have betrayed her.
The star-studded cast includes Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, Antonio Banderas, Bill Paxton, Michael Douglas and Michael Angarano.
