Actress Gina Carano, who was fired by Disney-owned Lucasfilm over controversial remarks about being a Republican, has announced plans to work on a new film project she is doing with the conservative website The Daily Wire.
“The Daily Wire is helping make one of my dreams — to develop and produce my own film — come true. I cried out and my prayer was answered. I am sending out a direct message of hope to everyone living in fear of cancellation by the totalitarian mob. I have only just begun using my voice which is now freer than ever before, and I hope it inspires others to do the same. They can’t cancel us if we don’t let them.” she told Deadline.
Carona was dismissed on Thursday from her role as Cara Dune in The Mandalorian due to a post on Instagram, which was seized upon by Disney. For several months the artist was harassed by the left and the Democratic Party for some publications in which she was critical.
The 38-year-old will develop, produce and star in the upcoming film, which The Daily Wire says it will release exclusively for its members as the company looks to bolster its entertainment division. Details are being kept under wraps, but it will be produced as part of Daily Wire‘s partnership with Bone Tomahawk producer Dallas Sonnier and his Bonfire Legend banner.
“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,” said Ben Shapiro, co-founder of The Daily Wire.
