Gina Carano is working on a film with Ben Shapiro after being dropped from The Mandalorian over a social media post comparing the treatment of Jewish people at the hands of the Nazis to the current US political climate.
The actor and Shapiro announced their partnership on Friday. Shapiro is a conservative commentator and podcaster, and co-founder of the conservative website The Daily Wire.
Carano shared the news on Twitter, writing: “This is just the beginning... welcome to the rebellion.”
It wasn’t immediately clear what the film will be about. The Daily Wire has said it will be released exclusively for its subscribers.
The announcement came after Lucasfilm said in a statement on Wednesday that Carano is not currently employed by the production company with "no plans for her to be in the future."
"Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable," the statement added.
Carano, who played Cara Dune in Disney+’s The Mandalorian, faced criticism after sharing a post on her Instagram Story which likened “hating someone for their political views” to the persecution of Jewish people by Nazis.
The post was the latest in a series of inflammatory social media posts by Carano.
