Red (“The Hitcher”, “Near Dark”) wrote the pic, the story of a traumatized woman who hires a long-hauler to track down an infamous serial killer named “White Knuckle”.
The former MMA fighter will also produce the film, which is currently scouting for a director.
Carano tells Deadline : “I’m completely ignited to be creating this thriller with The Daily Wire and Bonfire Legend. 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.”
