Story by Jack Foley

HAYWIRE star Gina Carano is in talks to join the cast of Fast & Furious 6.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the former MMA fighter turned actress, is being lined up to play a member of Dwayne Johnson’s team.

Paul Walker and Vin Diesel are set to return as rogue heroes Brian O’Conner and Dominic Toretto, respectively, while Justin Lin is back as director for his fourth outing.

The script is once again being written by Chris Morgan, who wrote the past three films, while Neal H Moritz and Diesel are returning as producers.

Plot details are still being kept tightly under wraps at this stage but Universal Pictures has set a US release of May 24, 2013.

Having impressed critics with her athleticism and acting ability in Haywire (alongside the likes of Michael Fassbender and Ewan McGregor) Carano has since landed another leading role in In The Blood, an action thriller to be directed by John Stockwell.

But The Hollywood Reporter believes she will shoot that film after she finishes Fast 6.
