Gina Carano isn’t coming back to MMA in 2012, but she is starring in a new action movie

Gina Carano isn’t coming back to MMA in 2012, but she is starring in a new action movie

If you ever find yourself on a dance floor with Gina Carano and the DJ spins Cali Swag District’s “Teach me how to Dougie,” the quality of your Dougie will be the difference between scoring a smile from Gina Carano or a long walk back to your apartment to watch countless hours of people doing the Dougie on YouTube until you get the hang of it. By then it’ll be too late to return to the club, and Gina will have gone home with a man who’s Dougie was superior to yours. Sometimes life has its missed opportunities, but realistically, Gina probably wouldn’t have gone home with you anyway. In fact, Gina’s next few months are already booked to film a new action flick called “In The Blood,” directed by John Stockwell (who directed Into the Blue, and Crush).

“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.“

For those of you that saw Haywire and enjoyed the action scenes: 8711, the stunt team that oversaw the fighting sequences is in negotiation to reteam with Gina for this new film. So the good news is that you get to see more of her this year, but the bad news is it won’t be in MMA. Regardless of Haywire’s mixed reviews, I thought it was a stellar debut into the movie industry by Carano, and I’m glad there’s an MMA fighter like her who’s bringing so much positive attention to the sport.

“In The Blood” begins principal photography in late spring/early summer. The film will probably be less dramatic than Haywire, and feature more action scenes, which essentially means it will appeal to a larger audience and leave you feeling gratified after spending $36.50 for a movie ticket and a bowl of popcorn. However, opting for the matinee will ensure you still have enough money to spend on tacos and domestic beer later that evening. [Source]
