Cavill has been spending a lot of time in Chicago, where Batman vs. Superman will be filming later this year. Carano has reportedly been joining the 30-year-old actor in the Windy City, reported Page Six. The pair has apparently been spotted having drinks at the Vertigo Sky Lounge and dining at SushiSamba.
Carano’s charisma in the Mma ring helped her launch a career in the movies, starting with Haywire, which Steven Soderbergh created specifically for her. She also scored a role in Fast & Furious 6. Though she’s also landed a part in an announced Adi Shankar project, Carano might be turning her sights on the Ufc Octagon.

Former Mma star Gina Carano, who rose to fame following her starring role in Steven Soderbergh’s 2011 action-thriller film Haywire – although she had previously appeared in low-budget actioner Blood and Bone alongside Michael Jai White – returns to the action genre, and a leading role, with In the Blood, the latest film from actor/director John Stockwell (Cheaters, Crazy/Beautiful).
In the Blood sees Ava (Carano) and Derek (Gigandet), a newly married couple, honeymooning in the Caribbean who are befriended by a local hustler, Manny (Cordova), who talks them into going to a night club where they get into a fight with the locals. The next day, whilst out zip-lining with Manny, Derek gets into an accident and is taken to hospital. However when Ava shows up looking for her husband, »

Though few can rival Matthew McConaughey in the realm of “career renaissance” at the moment, Channing Tatum has undergone a fascinating transformation over the past few years. He first broke out as a model-slash-actor in the first Step Up, but he began branching out with Steven Soderbergh’s 2011 film Haywire. He subsequently collaborated with Soderbergh on two more films to excellent results—Magic Mike and Side Effects—and proved himself a very skilled comedic actor with turns in 21 Jump Street and This Is the End. His upcoming films range from dark drama (Foxcatchter) to hard sci-fi/fantasy (Jupiter Ascending), and there are also a few more exciting prospects on the horizon. During a recent interview with MTV, Tatum revealed that he has indeed met about playing Gambit in a potential X-Men spinoff film, expressing his love for the character and willingness to tackle the role. He also provided an update »

Title: In the Blood Director: John Stockwell Starring: Gina Carano, Cam Gigandet, Treat Williams, Danny Trejo, Luiz Guzman, Amaury Nolasco, Ismael Cruz Cordova, Stephen Lang If we’re keeping tabs on the evolving filmography of ex-mixed martial arts fighter and future “The Expendabelles” centerpiece Gina Carano, “In the Blood,” from director John Stockwell, slots considerably below “Haywire,” her at once lithe and bruising collaboration with Stephen Soderbergh. And yet there’s still a certain ramshackle appeal to the film, a starchy, “Taken”-meets-”Turistas” revenge picture which could just as easily be titled “Woman on Fire.” “In the Blood” centers around Ava (Carano) and Derek Grant (Cam Gigandet), a newly married couple who head to the Caribbean [ Read More ]

Pulses are likely to remain level during “In the Blood,” a serviceable vehicle for Mma champ Gina Carano (“Haywire”). In a plot that variously recalls “True Lies,” “The Long Kiss Goodnight” and “Kill Bill,” Carano plays a new bride looking forward to a tranquil domestic life who’s forced to deploy her secret, all-purpose beatdown skills after her husband disappears. Given the limited release (the film is opening simultaneously on VOD), B.O. potency will depend on getting the word out to Carano’s fans, who may already be used to watching her on pay-per-view.
Perhaps inadvertently, the kidnapped-vacationers plot revisits territory director John Stockwell explored in 2006′s organ-trafficking thriller “Turistas,” down to a subplot involving a nonconsensual transfusion. A prologue sets the stage on the mean streets of Bridgeport, Conn., in 2002, when Ava (played as a teenager by Paloma Olympia Louvat) witnesses and avenges the murder of her self-styled »

Gina Carano is the only selling point that In the Blood, a predictable yet enjoyable action flick from Into the Blue helmer John Stockwell, really needs. After all, a hero who’s charismatic, easy on the eyes and capable of kicking some serious ass is hard to come by. Carano fits the bill quite nicely, and she’s the sole reason that action aficionados will (and should) check out In the Blood.
Starring as Ava, a newlywed with a rough past who goes on the hunt for her husband (Cam Giganet) after he disappears following a zip-lining accident on their Caribbean honeymoon, Carano gets her first real opportunity to prove herself as a leading lady (I’d argue that Soderbergh’s touch in Haywire made the film more about him than her). Luckily for In the Blood, there’s more to the actress than just her fists. Though the film’s script, »

Gina Carano found success as an Mma fighter, but my aversion to sweaty acronyms meant I first learned of her existence in Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire. She plays a CIA (more my speed) agent framed by her own people, and the film is basically her kicking one Hollywood leading man’s ass after the next including Channing Tatum, Michael Douglas, Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, and Antonio Banderas. It’s a combination of star power and a very frequent use of Carano’s impressive fighting abilities that makes the film so fun, but more than that, those elements helped deflect attention away from the sloppy script and her poor acting. Fast forward three years later and she’s finally found a follow-up leading role, but oddly and unfortunately, In the Blood has very little clue what to do with her. Ava (Carano) and Derek (Cam Gigandet) are newlyweds on their honeymoon in the Caribbean, and »

Blood Crush: Stockwell Returns to Exotic Paradise for B Movie Thrills
Considering that In the Blood was scripted by James Robert Johnston (The Howling Reborn; Joy Ride 2) and Bennett Yellin (Dumb & Dumber films) plus directed by actor/director John Stockwell, you might be surprised at how competently structured it is, even as it operates solely on the fumes of generic derivatives, plumbing the depths of any number of B action film tropes. Cashing in on Gina Carano’s headlining presence, it can’t quite manage to escape feeling like the poor man’s version of Haywire 2, though an intriguing supporting cast distracts from the silliness of it all as it glides along to a truncated denouement.
Opening with Ava’s (Gina Carano) narration about how her father turned her into a brutal killing machine and how she remembered his death, a scene of brutal violence segues to 12 years later in Arlington, »

Last summer, we knew Magic Mike 2 was happening, but with Steven Soderbergh retiring from filmmaking, no one was sure who would direct. There was a chance that Channing Tatum and his producing partner Reid Carolin might step up to direct, and Soderbergh said he would help out as director of photography, but it sounds like the sequel is going with another name from behind the scenes of the original male stripper movie. The Playlist has learned that the film will be appropriately and hilariously called Magic Mike Xxl, and first assistant director Greg Jacobs is stepping up to direct it. More below! This isn't all that surprising, and it's not a choice out of left field, because Jacobs has been working with Soderbergh for years. Jacobs has been Soderbergh's go-to Ad starting with King of the Hill and running through the Ocean's Eleven franchise, Out of Sight, Bubble, Erin Brockovich, »

Directed by Dito Montiel (Fighting) and starring Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games) and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (Fast & Furious 6) Empire State is based on the true story of one of the largest cash heists in U.S. history. This nerve-shredding action thriller will be available to own on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download from March 17th we’ve got three copies of the Blu-ray to give away absolutely free!
After failing to get into the police academy, Chris Potamitis (Hemsworth) settles for a security guard job with the Empire State Armored Truck Company. Chris makes the mistake of mentioning the company’s lax security to his best friend, Eddie (Michael Angarano, Haywire) and is soon unwittingly drawn into an elaborate scheme to rob the abundant amounts of cash being stored there. As the stakes continue to rise, Chris and Eddie must outwit the veteran NYPD Detective that is hot on their trail, »
One of the most well-known directors over the past 20 years has been Steven Soderbergh. With movies such as Schizopolis, The Limey, Ocean’s Eleven, The Informant!, and Haywire in his resume, many film fans were saddened to hear of his retirement from feature filmmaking. Fans of Soderbergh, however, were excited to hear that the filmmaker would continue to work, this time on the small screen, working with Cinemax as a producer and director on the new series The Knick. Created by Jack Amiel and Michael Begler, the series stars Clive Owen, Juliet Rylance, Steve Garfanti, and Cara Seymour. Four teasers for the series have now been released, and can be seen below.

Ex-mma fighter Gina Carano had dabbled in acting a bit before 2011, but it was Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire that really made her name in the world of action cinema. The director wasn’t the only recognizable name on the picture as he made sure to surround his star in the making with a cast that included Michael Douglas, Ewan McGregor, Channing Tatum, Antonio Banderas, and Michael Fassbender. It wasn’t a big hit by any means, and no one was impressed with Carano’s acting abilities, but action fans took note and looked forward to whatever Hollywood would offer her next. That whatever turned out to be a supporting role in Fast & Furious 6 and a guest spot on Fox’s Almost Human. If you saw Haywire then you know that’s a bullshit waste of an impressive talent right there. Fortunately, that dry-spell is coming to an end this year as Carano finally gets a second »

Former mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano spent years beating up her opponents in the ring before finally becoming a bona fide action star in Steven Soderbergh’s 2011 thriller Haywire. The groundwork had been perfectly laid out; her looks, femininity, and physicality along with a built in fanbase made her an attractive candidate for action movies. Haywire was a critical and mild commercial success, but mostly functioned as a (very successful) platform for introducing the world to Gina Carano, action star.
What happens though when Carano is expected to carry the load of a film that doesn’t have the benefit of being directed by someone as gifted as Steven Soderbergh? That’s the question of the day as the first trailer for In the Blood has been released and it’s hard to not be more than a little underwhelmed.
We get to see Carano running around some unnamed »

You’d think people would know better than to mess with Gina Carano, but if they didn’t, Gina Carano wouldn’t have any movies to star in. The Haywire star’s latest outing is In the Blood, in which she plays a newlywed determined to uncover the truth about the disappearance of her husband (Cam Gigandet). Glowering men like […] »

If we learned anything from Haywire, it’s that you really, truly don’t want to piss off a character played by Gina Carano. So we pity the fools who decide to kidnap her husband and demand a ransom in her new action thriller, In The Blood. It's just put its first trailer up at Apple.In this one, Carano stars as Ava, a trained fighter who is trying to put her dark past behind her and embrace a fresh start. But when her new husband (Cam Gigandet) vanishes during their Caribbean honeymoon, Ava uncovers a violent underworld of conspiracy in the middle of an island paradise.Far from collapsing into grief and fear, Ava instead pulls a Liam Neeson special and, armed with a deadly set of skills, sets out to discover the truth. One by one, she’ll take down the men she thinks are responsible for his abduction, »
Though she first made a big pop culture splash as one of the new "American Gladiators" on NBC, mixed martial artist Gina Carano has become an impressive action starlet in films like Haywire and Fast & Furious 6.

Suddenly, she finds herself caught up in a conspiracy on a tropical island when her husband vanishes on their honeymoon. And so, Carano is off to bust skulls, find her husband, and figure out just what is going on. It doesn't look very good, but Carano kicks ass. Watch below!
