Former Strikeforce champion Gina Carano is continuing to justify her move into Hollywood as she is now set to star in the sixth chapter of the long-running “Fast and Furious” movie series. Former WWE star Dwanye “The Rock” Johnson posted a picture of the two on set of the movie. via twitter The movie is set to hit theaters next May.
The former Strikeforce champion received solid reviews for her 2012 movie “Haywire,” but the film did not do well at the box office. Carano now moves on to the popular big budget racing series. The series last entry, “Fast Five,” grossed over half a billion dollars world wide.
Carano has no fought in MMA since losing the Strikeforce featherweight title to Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos in brutal fashion at “Strikeforce: Carano vs. Cyborg.” While the fighter-turned-actress has stated an interest in a possible MMA return, her career as an action actress is likely to supersede any sort of comeback attempt.
