Gina Carano will return to the movie-making business after getting the axe from “The Mandalorian,” but one of her films has already been delayed. According to The Daily Wire, production on her proposed film dubbed, “White Knuckle,” has been shelved until 2022 for fear that possible government-mandated vaccines could slow down the film-making process.

Of course, Carano has been very vocal when it comes to COVID-19 vaccines and the effectiveness (or lack thereof) of masks. Remember, Carano was fired from Disney’s “The Mandalorian” earlier this year after she posted a since-deleted tweet that focused on religious and political agendas today in comparison with the massacre of Jews during the holocaust.

“Gina Carano is not currently employed by LucasFilms and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” LucasFilms said in a statement shortly after he release. “Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”

Shortly thereafter, Carano joined forces with Ben Shapiro to continue her acting career.

As a result of the postponement of her upcoming thriller, Carano and Co. will take their talents to the countryside to film “Terror on the Prairie” alongside Donald Cerrone. Per a statement from one of the film’s producers, Dallas Sonnier, moving away from Hollywood will give the crew the freedom to make a film on its own terms.

“With the precariousness of the current Hollywood landscape and the remarkable overreach by its ruling class, we made the tough, but prudent choice to ride further out into the wild west to make movies on our own terms.”
