Since Jason Statham turned down a role in Fast & Furious 6 last week, the action franchise is apparently in need of another action star to fill that role. Now, according to THR, Haywire star Gina Carano is in talks to join the franchise.
Carano would play a member of Dwayne Johnson's law enforcement team. Ahh yes, you can already picture the smackdown between Diesel and Carano, or if the film is going for a bit of comedy, they could always sic her on Paul Walker.
Justin Lin is back to direct his fourth movie in the series which is set to be released May 24, 2013.
Carano recently starred in Haywire and gained generally favorable reviews in the film directed by Steven Soderbergh. She has also nabbed the lead role in John Stockwell's upcoming thriller In the Blood, which essentially uses the same premise of Haywire. In Blood, Carano plays a woman who sets off to take down the men she thinks kidnapped her husband during their Caribbean vacation. Think of her as the female Liam Neeson from Taken.
If Carano signs on, she would finish shooting Blood after she's done with Fast Six.
Does Fast Six have room for Carano? Who would you like to see her face off against?
