Gina Carano will return to a film set for the first time since her resignation from the “Star Wars” Disney+ series “The Mandalorian”, as right-wing publisher The Daily Wire prepares to launch its film division with an accelerated production of Carano’s Western thriller ” Terror on the Prairie.”
Directed by Michael Polish, the film follows a family of pioneers defending themselves against a band of villainous bandits on the prairies of Montana. The film also stars MMA fighter Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, stand-up comedian Tyler Fischer and Nick Searcy (“The Shape of Water”).

The film is scheduled to air next spring on The Daily Wire, where it will be available to subscribers.
“With the precarious state of today’s Hollywood landscape and the remarkable supremacy of the ruling class, we have made the difficult but wise choice to drive further into the wild west to make films on our own terms,” Sonnier said in a statement. a statement. “The Daily Wire has given Gina and our team all the support any producer could ask for. Now we have to make them proud by producing something that is really great.”
“Terror on the Prairie” is the first project to emerge from Carano’s collaboration with the Daily Wire, which was announced just two days after Carano was fired over social media posts comparing being conservative in Hollywood to being Jewish during the Holocaust. Carano played Cara Dune, a former rebel soldier adjusting to post-war life following the fall of the Galactic Empire.
Shortly after her firing, The Daily Wire ran an interview between Carano and Ben Shapiro in which the actress condemned Disney for firing her.
“I am not the only one who has ever been bullied by this company, and I know it so deeply,” she said. “They’ve been watching me everywhere and they’ve been watching me like a hawk. And I look at people in the same production and they can say anything they want, and that’s where I had a problem. I had a problem because I didn’t go along with the story.”
