Haywire's Gina Carano is in talks to join Fast and Furious 6

04.23.2012

This is some rather fitting news.

Gina Carano, MMA fighter and recent star of HAYWIRE is in talks to join the cast of FAST AND FURIOUS 6.

There is no word yet on what the plot for this installment will be. Apparently it's being kept under wraps. All we know is this: "Paul Walker and Vin Diesel are set to return as rogue heroes Brian OíConner and Dominic Toretto, respectively, while Dwayne Johnson is reprising his role as Diplomatic Security Service Agent Luke Hobbs, out to capture the boys. Carano will play a member of Johnsonís team."

HAYWIRE was a pretty badass Soderbergh film. Being her debut, I think Carano fit in quite nicely. I wouldn't want to say anything remotely negative because she could easily kick my ass. Personally, I think she will give Michelle Rodriguez a run for her money in this franchise.

Justin Lin is back on as director with Chris Morgan returning to write the screenplay. The film is due to release May 24, 2013.

I leave you with this hard to resist gif of Carano.

What an awesome year this has been for ass-kicking females. Gina Carano in Haywire, Paula Patton in MI-4, Jennifer Lawrence in Hunger Games. With Brave, Prometheus, Dark Knight Rises, GI Joe, and of course The Avengers all also set to have strong female characters in box office friendly action/adventure films.

The people who grew up watching James Cameron movies and are used to the idea of female characters taking charge have all grown up and started making movies.

She's cool and hot and other things and all, but she cannot act. I do like her though.

Dear Soloist

when your other ball drops and your pubes come in, you may look back on these posts of yours and say "damn, what a fucking annoying fanboy I was!" or even "did i really have Ryan Reynolds in CGI green as my avatar??". Its possible you may not. Its possible you are even a full grown man banging away at your Ninja Turtles keyboard and yelling at your mom that you be up for dinner when youre good and ready (good for you). But whatever the size of your Pac Man jammies, please talk to someone about

Dude, shut the fuck up. The thought that someone like you actually possesses a "high and mighty" attitude about being a fan of shitty movies is almost "awe"-inspiring to me. Yes, I said it, shitty movies, all of them. Some cool car chases, some shootouts, some hot chicks, etc, but that's it. No substance whatsoever. Fast Five is the only film in the franchise to even get any positive reviews, and even then, still only a 78% @ RT.

Seriously, the fact that you get angry and butthurt about

Seriously, the fact that you get angry and butthurt about other people having a fucking opinion says a lot about you. And the whole "oh, you people on the internet are loser man babies who live with your parents" shit is so fuckin' played out (and, clearly, a form of projecting, in your case), and redundant considering that you are also here (being a fanboy for the FF series. Yes, you can be a fanboy about things other than comic books) as well as the fact that you also have a fuckin' comic book character as you avatar as well (And I bet you that Lobo adaption ends up being even shittier than Green Lantern).

So seriously, unless you have something of substance to contribute to the conversation, just shut your stupid fuckin' slack-jawed mouth, you dipshit asshole.

Don't talk shit about Soloist Buddah, he's here every day being a fan and he's just as entitled as you to his opinion.

Have a Coke and a smile and you know the rest.

Dear Smiert...so your idea of "something of substance to contribute" opens with shut the fuck up and closes with dipshit asshole. Very poignant. Allow me to retort.
First, my comments aimed at Soloist are in the aggregate, not a commentary on Fast Five. I give him credit for his faithfulness but on the whole he slams without offering "substance". Please, if you disagree, show me where in my post i mention the words fast or furious in any context.
Second, I know they are shitty movies. They

Second, I know they are shitty movies. They are made to be shitty movies that feature, as you say, "cool car cashes, some shootouts, some hot chicks, etc." and thats ALL they are supposed to do. Mission Accomplished. Good movie.
Lastly, Im sure Lobo will suck ass. Just as GL, with its inconsistent CGI, hoaky lines, predictable plot, lame villains, mediocre acting, lifeless directing and poor marketing, sucked.
Enough substance for you?

I have no problem with anybody who likes the Fast and Furious franchise. There's obviously an audience for it if the films keep making money. As is the case with Transformers, Twilight, Final Destination etc.

The only problem I have with this news is that I know one of my friends will want to see this and drag me along.

You'll find no greater hater of the F&F series than me, BUT...

Fast Five was DAMN GOOD.

For a Summer movie, it did everything it was supposed to do and then-some: entertain the hell outta the followers while attracting new fans (myself), reinventing the wheel plotwise with a new heist storyline that was anything but boring, way better action set pieces that didn't go overboard on the CGI, and The Rock and The Diesel beating the shit out of each other...really, what's not to like?

As for Carano, I hope she signs up. Haywire was fun, she could hold her

Great casting, good to see the FF becoming a good F.U. film-snobbs action franchise

I agree with Kicky...

I like Gina as an action star. She's got great screen presence, she obviously has great fighting chops, and she's really really hot... But Haywire wasn't a great movie. It didn't live up to my expectations that I've grown to have from Soderbergh. It kinda felt like a really well plotted Jason Statham film. I think she'll be a great addition to the Fast & Furious series... And I think her performance won't seem as wooden when shes sharing the screen with Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson, as

Solid casting.

I won't be seeing this film or any future ones because I just don't care for these films or see the quality in what makes these films good.

Haywire was terrible It felt like Soderbergh wanted to prove he could make a decent action film with a female lead. I think Carano was convincing, but everything else about the movie was basic. She'll probably tear shit up in FF though.

Also I just wanted her to take her top off the entire movie.
