Everyone’s abuzz about Gina Carano’s role in Deadpool. However, people seem to have overlooked the thriller that’s currently being filmed with Bruce Willis.
Sure, Marvel has been releasing some real box-office hits lately. Though Gina’s character is set to be “Angel Dust” in the upcoming comic book movie, she also has an unreleased part in the Bruce Willis feature, Extraction. Carano is known for her mixed martial arts and high-intensity performances, and it seems this will be no short-falling of her norm.
According to the Internet Movie Database, the movie’s plot summary reads as follows.
“A former CIA operative is kidnapped by a group of terrorists. When his son learns there is no plan for his father to be saved, he launches his own rescue operation.”
Undoubtedly, Gina is a part of this rescue operation, somehow. And Bruce is the kidnapped father. From his roles in other movies such as RED, you would think it’d be unlikely he’d be kidnapped in any kind of way. However, the son is played by Kellan Lutz.

Though Carano may be tired in her tweet, it will pay off in the end.
Extraction has three production companies handling its film needs. These three production companies are Aperture Entertainment, Emmett/Furla Films and Oasis Films. As far as distributive companies, it’ll be dispersed by Grindstone Entertainment Group and Lionsgate. Directing Gina’s mixed-martial-arts thriller is Steven C. Miller. Many of his prior works are horror/thriller based as well, so why not add martial arts?
Carano shares a quote with the world when she states as follows.
“It’s a very big deal to me to remain the same person, because I know all of this is going to be gone one day, and I’m just going to have myself.”
It’s an important message Gina speaks to everyone, since anyone can relate. A fan via Twitter states an interesting viewpoint as well.
