Gina Carano is set to co-star in Jason Mewes’ directorial debut, Madness in the Method. She joins frequent Mewes collaborator Kevin Smith, Danny Trejo (Machete), Judd Nelson (Breakfast Club), Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers), Dean Cain (”Lois & Clark), and Teri Hatcher (”Desperate Housewives”).
Madness in the Method finds Mewes playing himself and discovering he has a knack for murder while researching a role as a serial killer. Carano will play Mewes’ wife.
Carano, a former MMA fighter, made her acting debut in Steven Soderbergh’s star-studded 2011 action-drama Haywire and co-starred in 2013’s Fast & Furious 6. She also played Angel Dust in last year’s runaway hit, Deadpool.
