The recent action movie Haywire hasn't fared as well at the box office as it did with critics (though it has made back its budget), but its star, MMA fighter-turned-actress Gina Carano, has already lined up another action project.
THR reports that Carano has joined the cast of the action-thriller In the Blood for director John Stockwell (Blue Crush, the upcoming Dark Tide). Carano will play a wife whose husband disappears while vacationing in the Caribbean, so she recklessly pursues the men she thinks are responsible. "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," said Stockwell.
In the Blood was written by Bennett Yellin and James Robert Johnston (Joy Ride 2). Production is set to start in Puerto Rico in early spring or summer. Carano's Haywire stunt team is in discussions to reteam with her on In the Blood. more cast for Oblivion and 300: Battle of Artemisia >> Posted 02.15.12 by Ryan
