MMA fighter Gina Carano impressed audiences with her brutal fighting style in Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire, and now it turns out she might be bringing that fighting style to Danny Trejo!
New fight flick, In The Blood will see Carano wake up whilst on holiday in the Caribbean to find her husband missing, and she goes on a violent rampage to get him back. The film will be directed by John Stockwell (Dark Tide, Into The Blue) and has been written by James Robert Johnston and Bennett Yellin (Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead) While both director and writers are not exactly big names here, the casting rumours which have just surfaced will easily get fans excited.
Firstly Avatar and Terra Nova star Stephen Lang is in talks to play Carano’s touch as old boots Father, the man who made her into a fighting machine. I would expect another Avatar type character here should Lang agree to join the film. Even more interesting is that Danny Trejo is also in talks, to play the villain. Oh, and get this, should he take the part, his mighty villainous name will be Big Biz. Now, the name alone is worth getting excited here, but seeing Carano and Trejo square off (as the hero and villain tend to do!) then this could well make In The Blood one of the most exciting piles of crap to come along in a while!
We will keep you posted on this one.
