That moment that MMA fighter-turned-action star Gina Carano is having? It's going to continue. The breakout star of last year's Haywire has just signed on for an upcoming action ensemble movie that will feature an all-female group of asskickers. It's not exactly going to be a huge studio movie; indie production company 1984 Private Defense Contractors is behind the project. But if it means that Gina Carano is on her way to become a go-to action star, then that's something to look forward to. This is a woman who was trusted by Steven Soderbergh, of all people, to carry an action movie with a pretty short acting resume to show for herself. (And a stellar athletic career, to be sure.)
The movie is still in the very early stages of production, and it doesn't look like it has a title or a director yet. (Dutch Southern is attached to write the screenplay.) But the prospect of a movie filled with women who can knock people to the ground (ahem, Zoe Bell, please) sounds like a jolly good time to me.
