Gina Carano is back ... and she wants revenge.

The former face of women’s MMA has scored her first movie under The Daily Wire, a revenge thriller based on the novel “White Knuckle” from author Eric Red, who also penned scripts for “The Hitcher” and “Near Dark.”

Filming is expected to begin in October.

“I’m completely ignited to be creating this thriller with The Daily Wire and Bonfire Legend,” the former “Haywire” lead told Deadline. “I feel I am exactly where I want and need to be at this moment in my life; it feels as if I have wings.”

The film is tentatively scheduled for an early 2022 release.

Carano was recently fired from the ultra-popular “Mandalorian” series on Disney+ after a series of “abhorrent and unacceptable” social media posts, but was quickly uncanceled by Ben Shapiro in defiance of the “authoritarian Hollywood Left.”

“White Knuckle” is the story of a “traumatized” but “strong-willed” woman and the truck driver she hires to help track down and exact revenge against a serial killer.
