Gina Carano already booked for her next movie role
After making her breakthrough with the action vehicle Haywire, the MMA fighter-turned-actress is coming on board to star in In the Blood, an action thriller being directed by John Stockwell (Into the Blue, Blue Crush).
Movie Package Co.’s Shaun Redick and Ray Mansfield (The Messenger) are producing the movie, which Cargo Entertainment is selling at EFM.
Described as being in the vein of Taken, Blood is set in motion when a husband disappears while vacationing in the Caribbean with his wife, to be played by Carano. The grieving wife passionately and recklessly pursues the men whom she believes kidnapped and killed him. Bennett Yellin and James Robert Johnston wrote the script.
“This role will showcase not only Gina’s fighting skills, but also her acting abilities as her character struggles to reign in her violent past,” Stockwell tells The Hollywood Reporter.
8711, the stunt team that worked on Haywire, is in discussions to reteam with Carano for Blood.
