Gina Carano Joins “In the Blood”

MMA fighter-turned-actress Gina Carano (“Haywire”) is set to star in the “Taken”-esque action thriller “In the Blood” at Verso Entertainment and Movie Package Co. says Heat Vision.

The story starts with a husband disappeaing while vacationing in the Caribbean with his wife (Carano). She sets out in a relentless pursuit of the men whom she believes kidnapped and killed him.

John Stockwell (“Into the Blue,” “Turistas”) directs from a script by Bennett Yellin and James Robert Johnston. Shaun Redick and Ray Mansfield are producing.

“Haywire” stunt team 8711 is in discussions to join the project which begins shooting late spring or early summer in Puerto Rico.
