By  | 

LAS VEGAS - MMA star Gina Carano will be in a new hollywood movie called "Knockout."

The movie, directed by Steven Soderbergh, will feature Carano in the starring role. She'll play a girl from the wrong side of the tracks who uses her fighting skills to turn around her life.

Soderbergh has also indicated that he will surround Carano with some big names to round out the cast. He envisions the film as a James Bond type action movie.

Carano recently lost her latest bout to Cris Cyborg Santos on Showtime. The loss was the very first of her career, dropping her MMA record to 7-1 overall.
