Gina Carano For Fast 6?

After beating up Hollywood stars including Channing Tatum and Michael Fassbender in Steve Soderbergh’s Haywire, former MMA champion Gina Carano is suddenly in high demand.  She’s already got a couple of films in development, but the big news is that Justin Lin is looking to cast her in the next instalment of the Fast & Furious series.

Chris Morgan’s writing the script which will no doubt involve any number of contrivance to pull off ridiculous vehicular stunts but the exact details are still a secret.

Paul Walker and Vin Diesel will reprise their roles as Brian O’Conner and Dominic Toretto with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson hot on their heels again as Agent Luke Hobbs.  Carano’s set to join Hobbs’ team, so expect some serious beat downs.

Carano’s also got the lead in  John Stockwell’s action thriller In The Blood which sounds like a female-fronted version of Taken but as shooting for Fast 6 begins this summer, she may end up doing that first.

Fast 6 is due for release May 24th 2013.
