Gina Carano Will Get Her Kicks in 'Fast 6'

Gina Carano

Any chance of Gina Carano returning to the ring in a fighting capacity is slim to none now that her movie career is taking off after her breakout role in Steven Soderbergh's action-thriller Haywire. If you want to see her fight, you'll have to see it in the movies from now on.

You won't have to wait long though. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Carano is joining the cast of Fast and the Furious 6 as a Diplomatic Security Service agent under the command of Dwayne Johnson's Luke Hobbs.

So far, Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, and Dwayne Johnson are the only actors from the previous Fast and the Furious movies confirmed for the sixth one. There are talks of bringing back other characters to close out the series, so there's a very good chance we'll see Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, and others return for the sixth and seventh movies.

Jason Statham was eyed for a role in the sequels, but, unfortunately, he and Universal were unable to come to an agreement so that role will go to someone else.

The series was supposed to wrap with the sixth movie, but the story got so big that they need two movies to tell it. The plan was to shoot both movies back-to-back to save money, but due to some issues, they're going to shoot the sixth one first and do the seventh one later.

Directed by Justin Lin, Fast and the Furious 6 is scheduled to shoot this May for a May 24, 2013 release.
