Gina Carano Claps Back with New Movie Project After Being Fired from Lucasfilm
It was reported yesterday that Gina Carano, who portrays Cara Duno in The Mandalorian was fired by Lucasfilm from her role.
“Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” a Lucasfilm spokesperson said in a statement. “Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”
On Wednesday, Carano was trending on social media under the hashtag FireGinaCarano following an Instagram post (since deleted, but screenshot and widely shared by users on social media) from the outspoken conservative actor and former mixed martial artist was met with severe backlash.
Hot on the heels of her being fired, Gina has fired back at critics announcing that she has another movie role in the works with Ben Shapiro’s Daily Wire.
Carano told Deadline today: “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.”
Details are being tight-lipped on the upcoming film. But Carano will produce, develop, and write in the film, which The daily Wire says will be released to its members as the company looks to bolster its entertainment division.
“We could not be more excited to be working with Gina Carano, an incredible talent dumped by Disney and Lucasfilm for offending the authoritarian Hollywood Left. This is what Daily Wire exists to do: provide an alternative not just for consumers, but for creators who refuse to bow to the mob,” said Daily Wire co-founder Shapiro.
“We’re eager to bring Gina’s talent to Americans who love her, and we’re just as eager to show Hollywood that if they want to keep cancelling those who think differently, they’ll just be helping us build the Xwing to take down their Death Star,” he added.
