Comic book role for Gina Carano
Gina Carano has landed the lead in a new comic book movie.
The mixed martial arts star-turned-actress will play the character Avengelyne, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog.
Gina is working with Rob Liefeld, who created Avengelyne, to bring the character to the big screen and they will be promoting the project at Comic-Con.
The Avengelyne comics were originally published in the 90s and followed a fallen angel cast to Earth, who fights the forces of evil.
Gina made her major film debut in Steven Soderbergh's Haywire last year, and has gone on to appear in In The Blood and Fast And Furious 6.
