Snags Gina Carano Action-fuelled Thriller
In the Blood
Raven Banner Entertainment has acquired Canadian rights to action thriller In the Blood, starring former MMA Fighter/Action Star Gina Carano (Fast and the Furious 6, Haywire).
Set for release in theaters, April 24th, the John Stockwell directed flick also stars Cam Gigandet (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2), Luis Guzmán (We’re the Millers, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3), Amaury Nolasco (The Rum Diary, Prison Break), Ismael Cruz Cordoba (The Good Wife), Treat Williams (Chicago Fire), Stephen Lang (Avatar) and Danny Trejo (Machete).
A showcase for the MMA fighter-turned-action star, In The Blood sees Carano as a wife whose husband disappears while they’re on their honeymoon in the Caribbean. She takes matters into her own hands and pursues the men who took him, uncovering a deeper conspiracy.
“Gina Carano is without a doubt, the most badass action heroine in Hollywood today,” says Raven Banner’s Michael Paszt. “It’s a real thrill for us to be releasing the film in Canada.”
Raven Banner’s Managing Partners, Michael Paszt and James Fler negotiated the deal with Shaun Redick and Ray Mansfield of Movie Package Co. and Arianne Fraser of Highland Film Group.
The film was produced by Raymond Mansfield and Shaun Redick, of Movie Package Co., and Cash Warren, and executive produced by Lee Portnoi, David R. Arnold, Nicola Horlick, Andrew Mann, Glenn M Stewart, Stefan Sonnenfeld, Luillo Ruiz, James Gibb and Belly Torres. The film was financed by The Way We Roll Productions and MICA Entertainment.
