Gina Carano signs onto Ryan Reynolds film Deadpool, with two more on the way

The Hollywood Reporter reports that former MMA star Gina Carano has joined Fox’s action film Deadpool, starring Ryan Reynolds as the titular Marvel anti-hero. Carano will play a mutant called Angel Dust, who can temporarily gain super human strength by increasing her adrenaline. She’s also starring alongside Robert De Niro and Kate Bosworth in the thriller Bus 657, and will reportedly appear in the Bruce Willis film Extraction.

Despite recent rumors of Carano potentially signing to the UFC or Bellator, no contracts materialized. Carano hasn’t fought since 2009, when she suffered her first loss to Cristiane Cyborg, but says she never “officially retired.”

According to the Deadpool IMDB page, it’s slated for a February release next year. Visit Carano’s IMDB for her complete filmography.
