"We got a call about two weeks ago to do 'The Fast and the Furious 6,' " Carano said. "We're in negotiations for that, so if that goes through, that will be a really cool opportunity for me to get my feet wet on another big-budget film and be around all these different types of actors."
Even though Gina Carano received critical praise for her starring role in Steven Soderbergh's 2012 action film Haywire, she has agreed to appear in Fast & Furious 6 as a member of The Rock's, aka Dwayne Johnson, security team. The film still stars Paul Walker and Vin Diesel. Carano hasn't fought since her only defeat by Cris "Cyborg" Santos in 2009, who has since been given a 12-month suspension for testing positive for PED's last January. Since then, she has showed little interest in returning to the cage with the success of the movie Haywire. Fighters have often complained about not making enough money, and this is the why I believe she's signed on to do another Hollywood blockbuster. With Haywire, she made a good impression and now she can go deep into the real pockets of Hollywood. I'm not suggesting that she's abandoning the smaller productions, but actors tend to work their craft on one project and get their money on another. Which is what she is now: an actor.
"I'm going to go from the 'Haywire' crew to the 'Fast 6' crew, so I'm going to get a very broad range of knowledge as far as people go," Carano said. "It's like two different high school groups. You've got the very artistic, and then you've got the action group of athletes, like hard-core. Very different personalities there."
This move proves that this is the direction she's taken with her career, whether it's for money or a passion for the screen. We may see her in the cage again, but I doubt that we should hold our breath for it, as fighting doesn't seem to be on her mind at the moment.
