Gina Carano announces a New Movie Project with Ben Shapiro, after being Fired!
Former Mandalorian actor Gina Carano did not take long in retaliating against Disney. After being fired from the show for her abhorrent posts on social media, Carano has joined hands with Ben Shapiro’s conservative website The Daily Wire for a new movie project. Here’s what we know
Carano announces new movie project, hitting back at Disney
While talking to The Deadline, Gina Carano said:
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.
Carano will not only develop this upcoming project but will also produce and star in it. And The Daily Wire is equally thrilled to have Carano on board. They’re looking forward to expanding their entertainment business and making this movie available exclusively to their members. We don’t know a lot of the details. But, what we do know is that the studios are in a partnership with Bone Tomahawk producer Dallas Sonnier. Ben Shapiro, the co-founder of The Daily Wire, said:
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.
The fallout with Disney
Gina Carano was already notorious for quite some time for her relatively conservative stances on social media. Previously, she refused to add her pronouns in her Twitter bio. However, in her latest posts, Carano compared the current political climate in the US to Nazi Germany. She wrote:
Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…even by children. Because history is edited, most people today don’t realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews. How is that any different from hating someone for their political views.
Furthermore, Carano also shared the photo of a person wearing several masks with the caption: “Meanwhile in California”. Instagram deleted both of these posts, but other users could not ignore them, and so couldn’t Disney. They soon announced that Carano will not be a part of The Mandalorian season 3.
