Gina Carano's own film
Gina Carano, star of The Mandalorian, whose contract was terminated by Lucasfilm due to her social media posts, has announced that she is developing a new film to be made with the support of The Daily Wire. It was announced on the publication's website.
She said: "The Daily Wire is helping me realise my dream of making my own film. I have been praying and my prayers have been answered. I want to give hope to all those who live in fear of being 'cancelled' by a totalitarian mob".
Lucasfilm Studios terminated Carano's contract on Wednesday over the actress' "offensive posts" on social media.
The post sparked a negative reaction on social media. Twitter users began demanding that Disney and Lucasfilm terminate Carano's contract. On Wednesday, Lucasfilm released a statement saying that Gina Carano is no longer an employee of the film studio. The company called Carano's social media posts "denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identity, disgusting and unacceptable".
The Daily Wire is a news website founded in 2015. Its founders are political commentator Ben Shapiro and filmmaker Jeremy Danial Boreing. In 2020, the publication co-founded a studio with production company Bonfire Legends to produce films. The Daily Wire's first feature was the action film "Run, Hide, Fight", which was released in January this year.
