It’s certainly been a whirlwind 24 hours for former MMA star turned actress Gina Carano. The MANDALORIAN star was fired yesterday from Disney for controversial comments she made on her social pages and it was well covered by numerous trade publications. Carano had been an actress ever since retiring from competition and the Star Wars gig was certainly her biggest paycheck to date.
Well, Carano, who was also about to get her own spin-off show based on her character, angered The House of Mouse and was subsequently let go yesterday.
The former fighter isn’t lying down however and she made an official statement today which she answered back to what had happened and also announced a new project she is going to be working on.
The Daily Wire is a conservative website run by Ben Shapiro who supports Carano and what she said. The site is looking to build up its entertainment division and while there are no details available for the film, it is being “produced as part of Daily Wire’s partnership with Bone Tomahawk producer Dallas Sonnier and his Bonfire Legend banner.”
The Daily Wire has already released its first movie which is the school shooter action-thriller Run Hide Fight which stars Thomas Jane.
It’ll be interesting to see what kind of film. Carano and her new partners come up with. Stay Tuned…
