When one blast door shuts a truck door opens. Last year Gina Carano was “fired” from the popular ‘Star Wars: The Mandalorian’ show on Disney+. Lucasfilm indicated it was for a tweet she posted about the history of the holocaust.
Co-star Pedro Pascal also posted about political comparisons to the same thing, but he wasn’t fired.
Many people, including Forbes, felt her firing was going too far and could negatively impact the already fractured brand.
Before that tweet she was also accused of being against transgender people for not putting pronouns in her bio. Carano instead posted that she understood why some people did and respected their choice to do so. When Twitter wouldn’t stop harassing her she posted “beep/bop/boop” in her bio which sent the mod and the media into a tizzy.
Now Ms. Carano is moving on from her portrayal of Cara Dune and is heading into her own film that she is producing and starring in written by Eric Red (The Hitcher.)
The film does not yet have a title but it’s based on Red’s novel “White Knuckle” that ” follows a strong-willed woman who survives an attempt by serial killer-trucker “White Knuckle.” Haunted by her encounter and the cops’ inability to catch her tormentor, she partners with a trucker to end the killer’s reign of terror.”
The MMA star/ actress/ producer told Deadline:
“I’m completely ignited to be creating this thriller with The Daily Wire and Bonfire Legend. I feel I am exactly where I want and need to be at this moment in my life; it feels as if I have wings.”
Filming will be done in Tennessee, Utah and Montana staring in October.
