Despite reports of a lackluster opening for Gina Carano’s debut as the lead-role in ‘Haywire,’ Hollywood has invited the MMA star back. Carano has since been casted in a┬áreprised role in the action film ‘In the Blood’ as a wife on a hunt to rescue her husband after a vacation in the Caribbean goes bad.

The movie will be directed by John Stockwell and will shoot in Puerto Rico in late Spring. With the timing of the shoot, Carano will look to have no time to schedule a return to the cage any time soon.
