It seems Haywire was only the beginning of Gina Carano’s acting career, as the former fighter is now in negotiations to star in The Fast and the Furious 6 for Universal Pictures and director Justin Lin.
Stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker are returning for the new movie, along with Dwayne Johnson, who portrayed Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs in Fast Five. THR says Carano will play a member of Hobbs’ team, although it hasn’t been revealed exactly how she’ll fit into the plot.
Justin Lin will direct from a screenplay by Chris Morgan. No plot details have been released, but the sequel is said to revolve around another heist. Universal Pictures has already set a May 24, 2013 release date for the sixth installment in the franchise, although it isn’t known exactly when it’ll shoot, or indeed if rumours are true that a seventh movie will be shot back-to-back with it.
