The US actress Gina Carano, who was fired for controversial social media posts on “The Mandalorian”, gets her own film. She doesn’t want to apologize.
After Gina Carano (38) was fired from Disney and her artist agency broke up with the US actress, the 38-year-old spoke up for the first time. Instead of apologizing for controversial social media posts, she announced to the industry magazine “Deadline” that she would produce her own film with the support of the conservative and also controversial website “The Daily Wire”.
Carano will develop the film, act as a producer and also act herself. No details are known about the project. In the coming season of the “Star Wars” series “The Mandalorian”, the 38-year-old will no longer be seen as Cara Dune. She had lost the role after sharing a TikTok post comparing the political situation in the US to the Nazi era, the magazine had previously reported. According to “Variety”, Carano had already attracted attention with misinformation about alleged election fraud in the United States and about the wearing of protective masks.
The Disney-owned production company Lucasfilm had stated in a statement: “Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans that she will be in the future. Your social media posts, vilifying people because of their cultural and religious identity, are horrific and unacceptable. “
