Ex-Mandalorian Star Gina Carano to Produce, Direct, and Star in Her Own Film After Getting Fired By Lucasfilm

Gina Carano has been at the center of controversy and making major headlines after Lucasfilm fired her from The Mandalorian. Lucasfilm also added that they will no longer be working with Carano in the future, calling her social media posts abhorrent.

The decision was widely debated by fans with many people celebrating the decision while there are also many people that are unhappy with it. Some fans even raised the issue of Hollywood's double standards, even dragging Pedro Pascal's old tweet in the mix. In Pascal's case, he compared the US to Nazi Germany during the time of former President Donald Trump.

After being fired by Lucasfilm, Carano will be teaming up with The Daily Wire for a new movie. The actress told Deadline that The Daily Wire is helping her achieve one of her dreams, which is to produce her own film.

The actress added that she cried out and her prayer was answered. She went on to say that she is sending out a direct message of hope to people who are living in fear of getting canceled. Carano added that she only just started using her voice which is now freer than before, hoping that it will inspire others to do the same.

The Daily Wire's Ben Shapiro also made a statement regarding the partnership with Carano:

"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. 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 canceling those who think differently, they'll just be helping us build the Xwing to take down their Death Star."

Little is known about the film with Carano but will be released exclusively to The Daily Wire members.
