Carano to kick some more ass in new thriller.

MMA fighter-turned-actress Gina Carano is set to topline the action thriller ‘In The Blood’ for director John Stockwell (‘Paradise Lost,’ ‘Into The Blue,’ ‘Blue Crush’).

The film, which has been described as being the vein of ‘Taken,’ starts with a husband disappearing while on vacation in the Caribbean with his wife (Carano). The grieving wife passionately and recklessly sets out in a relentless pursuit of the men whom she believes kidnapped and killed her husband.

Stockwell tells Heat Vision, “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.”

Carano’s stunt teams on ‘Haywire,’ 8711, are in discussions to reteam for the thriller.
