If you were hoping to see Gina Carano back in the cage, it looks like you’ll have to keep waiting. The MMA fighter reportedly has signed on to star in her second action movie, this one called In the Blood.
Carano will play the wife of a man who disappears while the couple is vacationing in the Caribbean. Carano’s character recklessly pursues the people she believes are the kidnappers.
“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,” director John Stockwell says.
Carano starred in Haywire which opened in January. The movie has grossed about $17 million at the box office which is disappointing given its $23 million budget.
With Carano out of the fighting picture, women’s MMA needs the heavily-hyped Ronda Rousey-Meisha Tate fight to be a success to help keep the sport alive.
