Just a couple of days after Lucus Film and Disney Plus blacklisted Gina Carano for suggesting that it would be great if Americans learned to get along and pointing out that much on social media is nonsense, the actress struck back at the vast media conglomerates with the announcement she will be developing, producing, and starring in a new film project (reported by Deadline.com.) The film will be made in association with the Daily Wire and Dallas Sonnier’s Bonfire Legend production company. (I was particularly intrigued by the connection with Sonnier who has produced some great, but quite violent films such as Bone Tomahawk , Dragged Across Concrete, Brawl in Cell Block 99, with some of Hollywood’s more conservative-leaning stars, Mel Gibson, Vince Vaughn, and Kurt Russell).)
Carano told Deadline, “The Daily Wire is helping make one of my dreams — to develop and produce my own film — come true. I cried out and my prayer was answered. I am sending out a direct message of hope to everyone living in fear of cancellation by the totalitarian mob. I have only just begun using my voice which is now freer than ever before, and I hope it inspires others to do the same. They can’t cancel us if we don’t let them.”
We’re pulling for you, Gina! Smash those Hollywood Pig Guards!
