Gina Carano, the MMA star/actress is currently prepping to shoot her next feature, IN THE BLOOD, and is set to be joined by two heavy-hitting co-stars in the form of Stephen Lang (AVATAR) and Danny Trejo (MACHETE).  Directed by John Stockwell, (best known as TOP GUN's "Cougar") who also helmed ROCK STAR, BLUE CRUSH, and the upcoming CODE NAME: GERONIMO, the film is being courted as a vehicle for the MMA champ's considerable physical skills.

The pic "centers on a wife whose husband disappears while they are vacationing in the Caribbean. The grieving wife passionately and recklessly pursues the men she believes kidnapped and killed him."

Lang will play Carano’s father, who raised her to be skillfully self-sufficient and brutally tough, while Trejo will play a thug named Big Biz who will face off against Carano. 

Lang as a bad ass father/mentor and Trejo as a villain against Carano's vengeance smells like a recipe for success to me.  Now, I know some will say that Carano is destined to be a straight-to-DVD star, but that's not proven just yet.  Although HAYWIRE wasn't a box office smash, it impressed the hell out of me.  Carano has got some decent chops for a first-timer and I'm more than willing to see what else she's got.  With stars like Lang and Trejo in her corner it only helps her chances.

IN THE BLOOD starts shooting in November for a release in 2013.

Extra Tidbit: Are you game for more Carano on the big screen?

From Haywire to Wonder Woman

I think sometime people want a mindless action movie and Haywire wasn't it but Haywire was a great movie regardless of the lack of mass appeal. As for the Wonder Woman thing, I know GC could pull off a 'new age' Wonder Woman but Gina's domineer won't be copacetic with the Wonder Woman of old. So come on and get her a good script.... Or call me and I'll write it... (LOL!)

Why is Danny Trejo punching a bag and it's flying towards him and not dented in?

WEIRD! Gina Carano is hot. I'll 3rd the Wonder Woman thing and tack on a mandatory nudity clause thank you Mr Speaker.

its a bag on a spring stand. if you hit it, it tilts away from/back to you like that, instead of swinging outward from the bottom.

She needs to kick a door down

She needs to kick down the office door to the WB movie studio and get cast as Wonder Woman already. She's already a goddess and can kick the $hit out of any other woman in Hollywood! What more could they need or want!

Someone cast her as Wonder Woman already so she doesn't have to waste her talents on this straight to DVD garbage.
