Carano In Talks To Join Fast And Furious Cast Alongside The Rock And Vin Diesel

Haywire star Gina Carano, the MMA athlete-turned-actress, is in negotiations to join the cast of Fast & Furious 6, the next installment in the billion-dollar franchise for Universal Pictures.

Plot and character are being kept locked in the trunk of a 1970 Dodge Charger, but Paul Walker and Vin Diesel are set to return as rogue heroes Brian O’Connor and Dominic Toretto, respectively, while Dwayne Johnson is reprising his role as Diplomatic Security Service Agent Luke Hobbs, out to capture the boys.

Carano will play a member of Johnson’s team.

Launched in 2001, the Fast franchise is one of Universal’s hottest properties, with 2011’s Fast Five reinvigorating what was considered a long-in-the-tooth series. Fast Five gave Universal its biggest opening weekend in studio history and grossed more than $600 million worldwide.

Fast 6 is slated for release May 24, 2013.

As reported on The Hollywood Reporter.

Carano who has already starred in Haywire has been making an impact in Hollywood ever since her first professional loss to Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos.

Could this signal the end of Carano’s MMA career ? Or do you think we could see her fighting for Strikeforce once again or even in the UFC ?
