Here’s hoping Gina Carano’s follow-up to “Haywire”, the “Taken”-esque action film “In the Blood” continues her burgeoning movie career. Cause let’s face it, it’s been a long time since we’ve had someone like Carano on the big screen on a regular basis. Sure, you can have your Angelina Jolie and Maggie Q. kicking ass, but every now and then, it’s a little hard to suspend disbelief that much. Carano, on the other hand, actually looks like she can whup ass, probably because, well, she can in real life.
Carano’s follow-up to the Steven Soderbergh-directed “Haywire” is “In the Blood”:
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.
John Stockwell, currently awaiting the fate of his shark movie “Dark Tide” with Halle Berry (it looks like direct-to-DVD is in its future), will direct the film from a script by Bennett Yellin and James Robert Johnston. Stockwell promises that the movie will “show not only Gina’s fighting skills, but also her acting abilities as her character struggles to reign in her violent past”. Hmm, let’s make sure the fighting stuff is up to snuff first, okay there, chief?
And if you like Carano’s action scenes from “Haywire”, you’ll be pleased to learn that 8711, the stunt team that worked on “Haywire”, is in talks to re-team with Carano again in “In The Blood”. So that means more stuff like this:
