The Hollywood Reporter broke the news Monday night that former Strikeforce star Gina Carano is set to star in her second movie, an "action thriller" called Into The Blood. The film is expected to start filming in Puerto Rico this spring or summer.

So what's it about? THR and director John Stockwell explain:

Described as being in the vein of Taken, Blood is set in motion when a husband disappears while vacationing in the Caribbean with his wife, to be played by Carano. The grieving wife passionately and recklessly pursues the men whom she believes kidnapped and killed him.

"This role will showcase not only Gina’s fighting skills, but also her acting abilities as her character struggles to reign in her violent past," Stockwell tells The Hollywood Reporter.

Carano broke out onto the silver screen this year with Haywire, an action movie that features a star-studded cast and Carano in a lead role. To date, the film has done over $24 million worldwide. THR added that the same stunt team that worked on Haywire are also in consideration for this new project.
