Kellan Lutz and Gina Carano Team Up for ‘Extraction’

Less than one month after actor Bruce Willis boarded the action-thriller Extraction, Gina Carano has been confirmed to join the cast, along with Kellan Lutz. We reported last week that actress Gina Carano will star in Extraction before she plays Angel Dust in Deadpool, but now her role has been confirmed.

The story centers on a CIA agent (Bruce Willis) who gets kidnapped by a terrorist group. Kellan Lutz is playing his son, Harry Turner, a CIA rookie agent who conducts a rescue mission on his own, against the agency's wishes. Gina Carano is playing Victoria, a hardened field operative tasked with finding Harry. The supporting cast includes Dan Bilzerian, Lydia Hull and Tyler J. Olson.

Actress Gina Carano has signed on to play Angel Dust in 20th Century Fox's highly-anticipated superhero adaptation Deadpool, alongside Ryan Reynolds and T.J. Miller.

Ryan Reynolds returns as the title character, which he first portrayed in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

The Hollywood Reporter also reveals that X-Men character Colossus is slated to appear in the movie. Daniel Cudmore played Colossus in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past, but it wasn't said if the actor is reprising his role, or if another actor will take over for this project.
