Channing Tatum is apparently the latest star to sign up Steven Soderbergh's new thriller Knockout - and Antonio Banderas is reportedly in talks to join him.

Banderas is in negotiations to play the head of the military unit that betrays super soldier Mallory Kane, played by mixed martial arts star Gina Carano, Playlist reports.

Tatum will apparently play a soldier named Aaron, who is sent by the unit to try and bring her back on side once she gets double-crossed by someone on the inside and becomes a rogue agent on the warpath for revenge.

Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, Dennis Quaid and Michael Douglas are all already on board for the movie.

Douglas is tipped to play a shady government figure, while Fassbender will be a member of her commando spy unit, and a potential candidate for Kane's betrayer.

Star Wars actor McGregor is due to play the owner of a private military company, who comes into Kane's life after she leaves her troop.

The movie is due to shoot on location in New Mexico, Barcelona and Dublin, while Turkey is said to have been ruled out by Soderbergh for tax reasons.
