When will Gina Carano return to mixed martial arts (MMA)?

Not anytime soon, it seems, thanks to her blossoming acting career over in Tinsel Town.

Since leaving the fight game after her first professional loss at the hands of Cristiane Santos in 2009, "Conviction" bolted for the bright lights of Hollywood, Calif., rubbing elbows with heavy hitters such as Michael Douglas, Ewan McGregor and Antonio Banderas in her first feature film, "Haywire."

After receiving good reviews for her performance in the film, which was directed by Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh -- who also directed such films as "Traffic" and the successful "Ocean's Eleven" trilogy and Erin Brokovich, the former face of women's MMA has nabbed yet another role in an even bigger and much more high profile film:

"Fast & The Furious 6."

I think its safe to say carano is officially retired

I didn't like haywire though.

They already had F&F 6 planned while filming the last one, and rumor is F&F 6 will be split into two separate films.

Wouldn't you if you pulled 600M on the last one, that's not including Blu Ray and DVD sales.

Depends

I would most likely go with living off that 600M rather than throw money into something that has a very strong chance to flop.

It's gonna come down to how much advertisement this movie gets. If they bs and think people are going to watch just becauase they saw one or two previews they are mistaken

Edit

A lot of their sales came from places other than the US.
That doesn't surprise me . European movies just aren't like that.

So with saying that. I WOULD make another and market the hell out of it overseas

To me there is just so many ways you can make a movie about cars. It just so happens these movies almost all have the same theme

Just got old to me

That's something else.. They decided to move away from the street racing theme and focus more on money heists.
