White Knuckle book

On February 12, 2021, shortly after actress and former mixed martial artist Gina Carano was fired from Disney+ and Lucasfilm's The Mandalorian due to a series of controversial posts she made on social media, it was announced that Carano would be developing, producing, and starring in a new film project with conservative media company The Daily Wire. The project was originally a film based on the 2015 book White Knuckle by author, screenwriter, and director Eric Red. The film was also set to be produced by Dallas Sonnier under his Bonfire Legend banner and was scheduled to begin production in October 2021 in Tennessee, Utah, and Montana. It was set to be released on The Daily Wire in the United States and internationally by Voltage Pictures.


The film was about a woman who survives an attempted murder by a serial killer-trucker called the “White Knuckle”. Haunted by her encounter and the cops’ inability to catch her tormentor, she partners with a trucker to end the killer’s reign of terror.

Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. Gina Carano and Daily Wire co-founder and co-CEO Jeremy Boreing said the film was cancelled at Carano's behest due to her refusal to comply with her film union's COVID-19 mask and vaccine requirements during the COVID-19 pandemic.


  • White Knuckle remains as a book with no plans for any media adaptation.
  • As of 2023, the film is cancelled.
  • The film was replaced with an original film that would still have Gina Carano and Dallas Sonnier involved, a Western titled Terror on the Prairie, which was filmed and set entirely in Montana (one of the filming locations for the cancelled film). It was released on The Daily Wire on June 14, 2022.
